I’ve now added a NACA shaped vent to the forward canopy after 3D printing an angled shroud and glueing this to the inside as shown below.
The rectangular vent opening is approximately 25mm x 5mm which is more than 3x the cool nose spinner inlet area.

Now just need to tidy up & paint the shroud ramp red.

Front hatch looks a lot better after the vent has been treated to a coat of red humbrol enamel :)
