Revell messed up the canopy, bad. But instead of freaking out over it, I decided to live with it. My Blue Leader build with have a Falcon 3D Parts canopy.
This kit canopy is painted gray, which is incorrect for Red 5. I removed the gray paint and repainted it Insignia White. Once dry, I applied the Maskol for the chipping. I then painted the frame Model Master Acryl Blue FS26414.
