Hi all,

Anyone know who I can find to do a canopy. I am trying to do a
Halo 3 theme canopy. I contacted a cople of places and got no response. I person did reply but he said the USNC graphic would be hard to replicate.

Here is what I want

Anyone know who can do this?

Try ACEHELIS here on RR.

Scott is the man! He can probably pull that off, and only take about 3 weeks to do it.

The less a man makes a clarative statement, the less likely he is to look like a fool in retrospect.

yeah I tried him. He was the only one that actually replied. He was the one that told me that it would be difficult to replicate.Its hard to do fine lines I guess. He wanted a vector file so that the vinyl cutter can do its thing. Unfortunately i don't have the file but I am trying to get a cople of the graphics made separately so I may be able to just have them on the canopy under a clearcoat.

I was going to suggest Insane!

There work is, so far, some of the best that I have seen on here. He uses the real high quality two part automotive paint (try OMG expensive.. NOT the paint you can get in your local paint shop) and more than that, doesn't use silkscreening or decals for detail work. HAND painted.. for what you get the price is amazing.

Right now I am between contracts (damn resession) but once I am back in the game I am planning on getting them to do a TREX 250 F3C fuse with my company name on it. Can't wait! =)

unspelling the world one misprint at a time.

I have always used Canopy FX. Joe and Danielle do really nice work for me. Check them out!

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

That's would be awesome ... a Halo / Master Chief scheme. My son would surely like that canopy.

Keep us posted.

Bad news. Insane Canopy reported that the canopy arrived damaged. I am so pissed about this.

This is really bad as there are no more being made. Anyone have a Vigor CS fiberglass canopy for sale?

The canopy is done. Here it is. The picture does not do it justice. Insane Canopy did a great job.

FYI: None of the sponsers here on RR could do the shark canopy I wanted done. One of them replied that they could do it....but it would have to be sent off to China which isn't even feasible.

A member did PM me after I was looking for at least 6 months and said he could do it and does have experience, and has faith it will come out looking awesome.

Off the canopy went to him.
