Hi evryone.
I was woundering if anyone can help. I'm building an F-30 sabre which is from a maker called "Academy". The problem is that on the main canopy section, there is a solid bubble from when it was moulded and is not letting me slide it to meet the other section.
Thanks, James

F-30 sabre?

you must mean an F-86F-30?

you'll need to carefully trim off the moulding attachment point, but be careful because clear plastic is brittle and can get stress cracks that will run into the canopy proper.
