Crappy canopy alignment issues solved.
The solution? Aftermarket vacuform canopies. Which, let me tell you, are an absolute treat to cut away from their backing sheets. Freehand. With a scalpel blade. The windscreens ended up being useless, but the main canopies are thin enough that they can be posed in the open position no problem.
Looking forward to masking and getting on to painting.
