I'm building the Hasegawa 1/72 TBM and I've opened and cut apart the canopy/windscreen pieces. My question is: are the pilots sliding canopy panels two pieces ie left and right sides? All my ref. photos show the canopy open and it looks like there is a left and right side section that slides in an overhead track. I hope that accurately describes what I am seeing. If this is the case I will need to do further surgery on the kit canopy parts to show this section open. I do not have a vac canopy and do not consider buying one an option right now. Any thoughts or help greatly appreciated.
There is a central tack on top and each slide can open separately. Give me a little while to post images.
