WL V939 Canopy replaced with a Heinz Ketchup bottle. I thought the shape looked cool; kinda like RC car meets alien ship. Gonna take this to a company trade show so I am sporting some company badging. Interesting thing about the ketchup bottle is that there are actually 3 layers of plastic lightly laminated together. So when you cut it, you'll see the layers delaminate. So instead of cutting one canopy, you get 3. I think one layer is a bit thinner than ideal but there is usable plastic in there similar to stock shell. You'll also have to rub or wash away a thin film used on the laminated layers. Not sure what it is but it comes off pretty easy.

The paint is regular Tamiya rc car body paint applied to the inside using some vinyl cut stencils for the graphics.
