Response to my worst missing parts story

I was 13 years old in 1964 when I rode my bike 2 miles through suburban traffic to the hardware/hobby store. I picked out the new Revell 1/72 FIAT Cr.42 and pedaled back home. When I opened it up and looked it over I couldn't find the canopy. So after another bike ride back to the shop I explained to the old guy at the counter that it wasn't in there and could I exchange it for another? He looked inside, peeled the inner corner back and there it was. I rode back feeling like an idiot the whole way home.

Kind of amazing what details stick out in your memories
