Default Super Mantis

Well.... here goes... I may be nuts.. but this kit begs to be at least made into a static model if nothing else.. I inherited a Mantis Kit (what the box says) and it appears to be complete with new OS45 FSR/SR engine and the instruction book is for a Super Mantis and has that part list.. and brand new Kavan Gyro... two sets of blades ...but the Canopy is missing...where can I get one? Is the GMP Cricket canopy close? I suspect that the PO read the Nick Ziroli Jr. article in MAN about 1982... and he updated from the FSR 40 to the 45 with an 8 oz Tank. Anyone fly one of these? I don't fly too much RC these days because I am deep into CL Stunt.. I still fly 1/2A Texaco a a couple of gliders now and then.. The pic of the Copter is off the web from a Vintage Helicopter site..
