Transparency: Rain and snow is not shown though canvas HUD

Rain and snow is not shown though my canvas' HUD transparency.

Is there any way to enable this?

I tried testing this on the Buccaneer which also has a Canvas HUD, but in that plane no snow or rain can be seen at all from inside the cockpit.

Does anyone know any other aircraft with a Canvas HUD?

I'm working on an aircraft which has a Canvas HUD and it is possible to see the rain through it. Check that all transparent surfaces (including the canvas) are registered as transparent (<inherits-from>Effects/model-transparent</inherits-from>).

Oh, I thought that was only for Rembrandt.

Many thanks. :)
