I've just been pawing over my new T-Rex 600NSP kit and I am amazed at the paint finish on the canopy. How do Align or Canomod produce such a paint finish in production quantities

$1.50 a day labor.

The government cannot give you anything without first taking it from someone else.

Bottom line, American Dog Consumers buy cheap toys, make communism-totalitarianism-human rights abuse-pollution in un-regulated countries-Asian Corporate profits-Asian property holdings in foreign countries- grow.

Who now owns most of the Diamond and Copper mines? Hmmmm.....?

Why?? American Consumers

Enjoy your well made canopies....

Sorry couldn't help myself...the reality is staring us in the face.

Sorry, enjoy your well made canopy.

Why Hover a Yak, when a Heli does it better?

At Miniature Aircraft, Tim used to paint on the side. He typically did this while he was redoing his boat. (I believe I am partial owner of a couple of pistons and rings). When Tim paints, he paints a dozen at a time and does custom work. Now he is pretty much out of the paint business. Too much work, as Tim puts a lot of time and effort into each paint job. If you have ever seen the canopies he has done, not terribly fancy, but high quality work.
Bill at Arizona Helis does a great job! I have one of his canopies on my Razor. He has many of the designs he does on his webpage. High quality work.
