haha Patrick this is more of an ineptitude on my part rather than anything
I'd say making sure the seats are in is important thing to do before gluing the canopy.
Making extra superduper sure the canopy is centered is also high on the checklist imo.
cleaning the parts is also important as they fit so well that any deeper cut results in the need of filling and sanding.
what really IS difficult on the kit side is putting in the gun vents and the other front fuselage inset with closed steps, their fit is good but not perfect and filling/sanding needs to be extra careful so as not to lose any of that delicious surface detail (I stumbled there quite badly).
positioning of the refuel probe cover is tricky
also I ruined some of the beautiful interior decals by touching them when they were being softened.
and try to avoid glue spills, that saves time too
more to come
