HM F-35 Canopy...
Anybody know why the HM F-35 comes with two canopies...?? I got one in today and I noticed right away there is one on the bird, and one in the accessory tray. I assume this is one for open position and one for closed... If that's the case it's OK I guess, but I think I would have preferred a hinged one. Does HM do the two canopy arrangement on most of their models..?? I only have 2 other HM types on display at the moment, the F-18 and F-16..., the F-16 appears to be hinged and the Hornet seems to be an open or closed option type.

Re: HM F-35 Canopy...
HM seems to be moving away from the hinged canopy. Seems like the only ones hinged anymore are the F-16, F-22, F-102, rear canopy of the F-4, and F-105. The F-106 started off hinged, but then changed with HA3603 (Spirit of Jacksonville).

The only time the 2 piece open/closed arrangement bothers me is when the canopy open angle is wrong (like the F-18, too far open). But it's so, so, so much easier to insert the pilot figurine when the canopy is removable...

Yes, one is for the closed position and the other is for the open position
