Getting my rattle can out, airbrush down.
Nice work. I'd pay hundred bucks providing it's fuel and crash proof.

The only way to make a canopy crash proof is not fly it!
Yes it is fuel proof.
All the paint was done with an air brush then it was taken to work for the clear coat to be put on.

I am getting mine done by http://www.braysonart.com/

Ashley fairly local to me in Rugby, his work is first rate and charges from £155 upwards, depending on what you want but that does include professional clear coating.

Hopefully my synergy canopy will be making its way to him very soon

Here's andys that was finished last week

Cool thanks bear. Would you be able to spray that stuff through an airbrush or would it have to be a proper spray gun? Is 2K a urethane top coat?This Heli Will Self Destruct In Five Seconds!!

I used to shoot urethane clear through a $15 badger external mix gun. It would clog up and spit like crazy out of my internal mix guns... but the little plastic bodied cheapy would do a nice job.

2-pack is really an isocyanate-based acrylic resin. it is catalysed to cure, rather than "drying" (oxidised by air-contact), 2-pack (aka "2K" ) will set once mixed. You are virtually coating with liquid araldite so it's very tough,hardwearing, impervious to many acids, alkalis,brake-fluid,organics like acetone and cellulose thinners (toluene, xylene,etc.)

It's bloody good stuff!!! when did you last see a metallic car finished in basecoat,showing a yellowish cast? NEVER.
it really is the dog's, BUT ALL equipment must be cleaned BEFOER IT SETS, as after that it's nigh -on indestructible.(also acts as a superb wood varnish. )

Ah so far I was under the impression that the acrylic urethanes were a 1component thing. But now I understand that you have to mix 2 parts?
