This is a very nice kit. It is hard to believe the molds are 20 years old. Great price too.
Hop you like it.

Ahhh! Don't ask me about the canopy! It was truely the only un-enjoyable part of the build. As I told some fellow modelers at breakfast a few days ago, I am lucky there was not a revolver next to me while I was painting the canoy or I might not be here .
To answer your question though, I masked it with Tamiya tape. I masked and painted all the horizontal lines first. Then painted the vertial lines. Then I masked the remaining odd angles of the windscreen.
Now that's a clean Build. Glad to see someone buck the trend of overly weathered models. Nicely done .
I love it too and want to marry Manstein
No Patty-Fingers if you please. The proprieties at all times!

Great job, the canopy frames jumped out at me - they look flawless.
