I assume you have the version with the fixed canopy, not the ejector seat type. Can't help I'm sorry. I have the RAF Dayfighter version with the canopy and pilot missing. Must have ejected over the ocean lol!
Still looking for a replacement. One moulded from a soda bottle that I can glue in place would be fine.

i'm not sure, but i'd bet its got a couple tabs front and back? Maybe take fuselage apart and see how its clipped in from underside? Might be some caster gluing in down. Here's the later version, more than likely the front tab is the same?

Yes, and I have been racking my brain trying to remember how or if I removed the canopy on the fixed one, or even if there was a true fixed canopy.

I have both, the eject the pilot plane and not.  Both canopies just slide forward and up out of the air frame.  But I have two that I have not dealt with that look like there are hold-downs fixed inside of the cockpit.

Got to explore those further.

Notice, the white one with the pilot eject feature has a hole in the front of the dash for the release clip, while the silver (King Cobra) does not. Both tilt forward.
