You posted in the General forum archive, the quiet back-water where old but useful posts slowly molder with age.  You should post this in the Jets forum.

There's two narrow aluminum strips on the canopy centerline extending from the rear frames for both pilot and RIO about 2/3 forward - crew protection from lightning strikes.

 

If there's a single line through the whole canopy in a scale model kit, that's the result of moulding process and should be eliminated.
