And here’s why its a 2 piece main canopy

Here’s the Monogram Mosquoto canopy from above- These bits of tape held it while the Testors Blue Label non toxic liquid cement dried. The reason Monogram molded the bomber (B Mk IV) canopy in two pieces is to accomidate the blisters on either side, right where the aircrew were sitting. See ’em now?

Note also that the front edge of the lower (left/port) front of the windscreen isn’t matched up to the actually fuselage, yet. in this photo.
