Alien Conquest 7066 'Vic Viper' canopy problem
I've just started building 7066
and (so far) very good it is too.
However, the canopy on the Viper doesn't close properly. After much diagnosis it appears that it the sides are very slighty too deep (I'm guessing 0.5 mm at most) and consequently, at the hinge end, it hits the 1x4 panels beneath and thus the canopy remains ajar. Has anyone else noticed this? I thought about taking a sheet of sandpaper to it (!) but in the end replaced the 1x4 panels with a 1x4 plate and a 1x4 tile each side which leaves space above them for the extra depth of the canopy to go, and the canopy now closes and the fig still fits in.
