Well sorry to say this has met with the brick of doom. There's a step where the canopy meets the fuselage due to the clear part being too small. It really shows up under the light grey camo paint and once you've seen it it's all you can see!
This means you can only use it open and I had closed mine so gently tried to remove it but it cracked... Damn that Revell Clear Contacta is strong.
