I completed an F15 last week that built up the canopy from 14 copies of the canopy profile. I used that same technique for the F14. This adds 11 grams weight so there is a penalty building this way but it sure looks nice.
That is a great idea. Big thumbs up.
I am building a 100% version after doing a 75% one, and I think I'll try and do the same as you. I too would like to know how you fixed your canopy on, magnets? Though I and a supporter of more mechanical fixing, cut off servo arms make good latches.

Might go one step further and put on a clear canopy with a pilot. Might be a bit OTT but . . . planes don't fly them selves (famous last words )

Well done "Tripn4days", all that frustration payed off. This plane is just too much fun, it must be illegal ! !

cheers all
