A canopy is like a face of a plane. In most cases one can recognize the plane by looking at its nose.

If I draw your portrait but make your eyes too wide and too round, it will not look like you - it will be a caricature.
As it is now, the canopy on this plane is a caricature, not scale. In particular, it is too large and the front is round instead of straight, the back of the canopy is too wide. And no amount of paint will make it the right shape, the canopy would have to be replaced.
As a result, the plane has a completely different face, different personality.

I may be biased, but for me the wrong canopy is a big deterrent factor, despite of all the other goodies. In that respect, the smaller Mig 29 that Hobby Lobby and others were selling looked much much better.
