The same as for the other plane with the cracked canopy. Fill the join with silicone and then apply electrical tape on top. The aft canopy overlaps the lip of the fuselage and the crack will not migrate from one material to another so , since the crack already reached the edge of the plexiglass, it won’t go any further.
in terms of visuals, I will apply a nice vinyl decal to make it look like it was there on purpose
