It will be freeware.
Planar windows? What do you mean? Cockpit windows are simply cut out of the fuselage shape which I modelled from cross section drawings in the 757 SRM-manual.

The front windows are flat (structurally required for safety) and the #2 & #3 windows follow general fuselage contours.

Some aeroplane nose contours are extremely hard to build from photo references alone.
The 757 is one of them. If you have the cross sections at key distances from the fuselage datum line the rest is almost effortless.
