Paper Canopies for MQX / V929 - Part 6

...I'm back!
Well, more back to the future in this case... so far, the MQX has been cloned only in the mechanical layout and general concept. No one ever dared to clone the canopy shape as well... until now. So new paint schemes have starting floating around the interwebz giving the much reviled MQX canopy a second chance.
So i've decided to give it a second chance as well. I sat there, looking at it for a looong time, trying to find out what was wrong with it. What was it? Many things: the two fake motors, the fact that it was so large that it was interferring with the prop wash, and so on. But still... if you looked at it in its general shape, the main outlines, were kinda reminescent of a sport car mixed with a sci fi dropship.
Mmmh... CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.

Here i give you: the Blade MQX Original Canopy REVISED. More paint schemes will be available upon request.

No problems... I just finished assembling the Green one. I printed it on 9.6 mil glossy photo paper. Trimmed with exacto and used clear scotch on the inside to assemble... turned out very nice... thank you for sharing
