Looks BAD! What type of paint did you use? How did you prep the airframe? Will regular spray paint in the cans work, I saw somewhere that a fellow had used auto primer,however many conflicting comments on that thread. I want to paint mine also.
Thanks

It looks great -- the fin fits right in with the shark theme.

Looks great!!! Hope to see it in person in September at your big event over there. Or bring it to Modesto Reservoir in Mid July. Although we are emphasising World War I we will be having all types of electrics fly. Mike Heer

Rob, that is a great idea putting the "Sharks Teeth" on that nose. That's the est PJ I've seen. I like the idea of the fin looking like a shark's fin. If it were me, I'd sand it to emphasize that quality! It's gonna scare off all the rodents out at <a href=http://www.jps.net/cobrajet/courtln/courtln1.html target=blank>Court Lane</a> though!

Thanks for all the compliments guys I used Americana Acrylic craft paint $1.29 a bottle, applied with an airbrush. I then drew out the shark tooth pattern and cut it out of three layers of 2mm sign viynl that were scraps I got at work.

Be sure to sand your Pico well before painting, We'll see how the durability of it is. Now all I have to do is finish mounting the servoes and test fly it, if I can ever quit working on my 109.

It's prolly gonna freak some of the old timers out!!---Rob
