Toothpicks work well to clean up painted canopy frames provided:
-You use acrylic paint, not enamels or lacquers
-You clean up the frames before the paint completely cures
-You haven’t used Future (or similar) on the canopy
Spiros (@fiveten), I’m with you. Getting a sharp blade near a canopy makes my hands shake.

I’ve concluded that the starboard wing has too much dihedral and that the tailplane is pretty square.
So, I cut the wing off, breaking one of the radar antennae off in the process.
I’ve re-glued the wing on at a better angle.

Two steps forward. . . .
Good thing you realised it before painting it.

Good job, Michael @michaelt!
Some things you just can’t stand living with….

Better to have it solved up forehand.
Correcting it after painting would be a nightmare.

Nice catch, Michael (@michaelt). I probably would have just kept pushing on it till it broke, and then had to deal with a much bigger problem. Much better to do it this way.

George (@gblair) – actually I split the fuselage seam a bit vainly trying to “push”, and broke off one of the “towel rail” antenna under the fuselage. But don’t tell anyone…
