No No No ... canopy hold down is simple and can be much cleaner ............

Cocktail stick into front lower part bof canopy foam ... hole in nose of fuselage ... stick fits into hole. Best to epoxy foam around so it doesn't enalrge hole and make it sloppy.

At back end a wing hold-down bolt or as I have ... a cocktail stick across inside fuselage .. two rubber bands up through air vent hole to cocktail stick ends in canopy ...









In fact the rear band part - I've moved the stick ends to back of canaopy so the bands PULL the canopy forward ... as the photo here shows the bands going forward which actually pulls the canaopy back and is not so good.

But easy .. clean and easy to do.
