I have an ex-friend who was going to paint my (fiberglass) canopy for me about a year and a half ago. He took it home, used it as an ashtray, screwed up the edges of the gel coat, and I managed to get it back with nothing more than a few smudges of random paint from other crap he was doing near it.

I've managed to recover enough of it to let a friend of mine give a try at painting a canopy.

I have a scheme in mind, but I can not seem to find a photograph of anything similar anywhere.

Basically, imagine a fire that's filled with lightning. A bunsen burner that's discharging electricity through the flame itself. I'm envisioning this in true fire of course.

He didn't sound like it'd be that challenging, which is why I'm trying to find a photograph or something to help me explain what exactly I'm talking about.

If anybody has anything for me, please... lol. Let me know!

Go see TaleGunner's gallery, he has over 2600 pictures of different canopies...you might find something like what you want in his gallery. Good luck.
When I want a new canopy I think up what I want and get either AceHeli's or Canopy-FX to paint it for me. This is the best way to have a unique look for your heli.

Wow that was fast!

I'll be digging through there to see if I can find something similar...

I really know what I want and can see it in my head. However, I have basically no actual artistic ability so I can't exactly draw it out myself. I just need a sample of what I'm looking for so he knows what he's up against. LOL
