Next, I decided to tackle the canopy. I probably won't attach it to the Venom until closer to the end, but I wanted to get it painted regardless. Note that I am painting both canopies for contingency reasons (in case I screw one up) and also so I can just pick whichever one turns out to be my favorite. I followed the steps from a box that was on page 23 of White Dwarf Weekly #35 (Sometimes it was actually worth buying).

|Deployment of the claws.|
Following all the stages I outlined in the previous post, I painted both canopy stanchions while they were on the claws. In case you're wondering, I painted both just in case I messed one up.
I shall stop here with some sound advice from Da Masta Cheef :
"Don’t clearcoat that canopy, it’ll fog out, put it on the venom after that step."
He is totally right of course, so we will save that ritual for last.
