    Try this:

    I'm just putting the link since the pic is so huge.

    By PVC sheeting, do you mean a sintra type material? If you want the most accurate look with sintra, you may have to cut the teardrop on an angle or be prepared to sand it down a lot. Good luck. Post any other questions you have if you need help. (after searching previous threads of course)

    Thanks for the pic nice and clear.
    The material I am using is the same as plastic guttering is made of over here in the UK dark grey but in sheet form about 2ft x 3ft bends in boiling water. I was going to use car filler on the edge between the tear drop and the main body of the cod, sanding it down to give it a more rounded shape so it looks like one piece (hope that made sense)

    OK, you may want to do a test piece first. Bondo (car filler) doesn't stick worth beans to Sintra (PVC) so try a pce to make sure it won't shear off with the slightest twist.
