The canopy design is actually ripped off from several hypersonic test vehicle designs form the late 1960's through mid 1970', the era in which Aurora design would have begun.I'd think that the sharp edges on the canopy would get hot and require extra thermal protection.

That's hardly the only one of the models I've made to have gotten the "Asian slave-labor copy" treatment. No point in trying to sue them, the rule of law - at least as far as copyright - does not apply in that part of the world, and in any event I don't "own" the designs. I'm a bit miffed that a lot of their ads are simple copies of the ads for the original Fantastic Plastic kits.
