Sliding Block Technique
This is my "Sliding Block" technique for sliding canopies. This particular version allows the canopy to slide 4 studs length.
About this creation
This layout allows the canopy to slide 4 studs. The center section with a row of 5 studs, means that the canopy will have 4 studs it could slide over, since it will occupy one row itself.

This area is easily changed for whatever length you like. I prefer a slide factor of 3.


Here is the step by step for the sliding section:

Quoting Sebeus I Nicely done, it's quite big so I can't use it on my small fighters but still nice
Thats true, it was designed for longnose fighters, so it doesn't really work on small fighters.

A simple yet ingenious technique for this situation. My hat's off to you for this one. If I use it on one my future projects, I'll be sure to give you the proper credit.

Great technique for anything, I used to use something like this to make handgun slides--I've since stopped making brick guns.
