A very detailed finished model. Paint finish is excellent. I have to confess what really got my attention was the pilot figure. Extraordinary work done on the painting.

The canopy opens from the front because the canopy on the F-35B is shorter due to the fan being behind it. Therefore the canopies are of different length but the same shape at the front. By having the actuators and mount at the front this standardizes the parts across the fleet. Instead of having two types of canopy actuators, the F-35 has one.

 

A byproduct of this design is the ejection seat can be removed without removing the canopy. And most the weight is in the front of the canopy and therefore this arrangement takes less force to lift the canopy which results in less wear in the canopy actuators.

 

Oh, btw, awesome build!
