I have an idea for adding some detail to my F-35A canopy. On the real one in this picture there is a patch on each side of the rear portion of the canopy. possibly something to do with the explosive charge to blow the canopy? It's fairly prominent but missing on the model. I think these gun shields from my 1/700 ship would simulate the patch pretty well. The trick is how to attach them to the canopy and make them look good. I was thinking of using a clear glue. The last picture is my test with this on a piece of the sprue from the canopy.
Has anyone done this before? If so I'd love some ideas to eliminate my experimentation and give me something that will look good :-)
