Has anybody gone about building a cockpit for an aerobatic aircraft, so a rounded glass hinged open cockpit? How did you do it?

It's unclear what you're asking about. "Glass cockpit" is a term that often refers to an avionics suite that uses computers and flat panel screens instead of mechanical gauges to show flight data, navigation, and engine information.

If you're asking about canopy transparencies like bubble canopies, yes, plenty of folks have done that, though few do it any more. Most people buy their transparencies from plastics companies like LP Aero Plastics, Aircraft Windshields, Inc., and AeroCanopy (was Todd's Canopies).

Edit add: Yeah, what BJC said.
