that's some real skill. I wouldn't want to fly those for fear of messing them up.

Well the Krylon Fusion laid down nice - looks better now than when I sprayed it. I'll let it dry in the house for a day before trying to mask the next color, it'll be plenty good for me if it doesn't get any worse - pull ups, top coat eating base coat, user error, that kind of thing.

+1 to that. I got one R/C monster nitro truck so tricked out and a custom airbrushed body that was so nice I never ran it after that. Nice shelf queen though.

All of those planes have crashed. I think the owner of the TermaGator kept some of the artwork. The delta crashed, but it was from a thrown prop blade at decent altitude - ripped the engine/mount off and the plane fluttered to the ground. The guy who painted it was there when it happened, I still have the carcass.

OK, canopy turned out OK for rattlecan, I didn't get to carried away with trying to do too much and so it looks kinda amateurish. But it ain't a milk jug no more!

Here it is against an unpainted & unpainted w/ HK450 decal

nice to see Alzrc offering a non-DFC 450 head. seems to be inspired by the 450 Sport.

This one is interesting Pat. Looks partially from the old HK450PRO.

Good to see there are still parts for the Old 450 Pro. Parts are starting to get hard to get now days.

I really like these canopies. I have several of them. I don't bother painting them any more as I tend to crash a lot and damaged them. They are more durable in a crash than any other canopies.

They remind me of the old Raptor 30 canopy, sort of a nostalgia thing. And yeah, I'm not to the point where looks are the top priority.
