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.

Here’s a thin depth of field photo showing the main canopy from aft, little bits of tape holding the halves while the Testors Non Toxic liquid glue dries.

And the next one will be better.
