unfortunately, i misplaced the canopy for this kit and had to fashion my own from plasticard. it was stored the kit in my closet for almost two years and was plundering it for bits constantly... guess i misplaced the canopy along the way.
Wow, I love the paint job on that stormfang. Looks beautiful!

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)
Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.
Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.
Looks amazing, saw these on FB, but came here to comment.
The gold detailing is from the Legion Space Wolves transfer sheet FW have done. The gold seahorse is a Void Wolf symbol.

(Assuming your talking to me). I haven’t done much vehicles for my Wolves. The large blank spaces are daunting. So trying to learn from you guys how to keep them interesting.
I have a Stormwolf/fang. Probably will paint it Seawolves (eventually). As it makes most sense in my mind for them to have it. The void wolf would be great for that. Not only looking a bit like a sea horse but also representing crossing the Star Sea which they are also known for. Just had an idea, maybe more Sea trophies on it. The later-base is growing.
The Void wolf symbol was an honour mark handed to units/ vehicles with a recognised speciality in void combat, for example in 30K it would be units like breachers.
It is a cool design.
Wiispy the canopy is awesome, almost like a blast shield to protect the pilot on re-entry to a planets atmosphere A simple elegant solution. Is it the same canopy as on the storm talon kit?

No, i made it from plasticard.
I appreciate the kind comments but It's really a less simple then i hoped for, honestly. The middle piece was easy, but I couldn't get the measure the lengths/angles right to cut the side panels (which are a wacky angled quadrilateral shape). I ended up hollowing out the whole cockpit and boarding up the empty windows from beneath (so the stormfang frame could hide too-big plasticard pieces).
I meant on the original model, does it use the same canopy cover as the storm talon?
