Hi All,

I've been feverishly trying to finish my Tamiya P-47M for this Saturdays contest and have run into a road block. I assume that "T" shaped piece is part of the canopy slide correct? It just doesn't all seem to mate up as I would expect. I would think it sits all the way down and bottoms out in the slot but mine sits proud like an aerial almost. is that correct? Does anyone have a good close up shot of this so i can see how it is supposed to fit?

I'm so confused...

Thank You!

AHA! The instructions show it going in backwards. It fit fine once I flipped it around so that the two bumps face the rear of the airframe.
