I hope I dont offend but Im assuming you want honest opinions. Im not digging it at all. I can see where this might look good on canvas but not on canopy.

Bottom line though is how you feel about it

Hi NPSK8TER,

I like it. I'm so tired of everyone's canopy looking alike. It's nice to see a personal expression of artistic effort rather than just another assembly line look.

It appears that there is more depth to the paint job than shows up in the photos. I bet it looks even better in person.

NICE JOB!

Keep 'em flying.

Ouch! Well compared to the stock canopy scheme, this is a diamond! I really just handed the canopy over to the guy and told him to change the window shape, main color of yellow, and do some crazy graphics. Also done for me in about a week! What more could ya ask for! The tribal design was all hand pin striped and the bottom was that foil leaf design. Honestly i wanted him to keep the shaded window look of the stock. But if you did see this canopy in person, you would be amazed! The pic with my phone just dont do it justice!!! Thanks LJS

I don't like how you cut it. Otherwise, the paint job looks good.

I was wondering if someone else was going try leafing a canopy. It looks great. Kudos to the painter.

i didnt really care for the leafing but the paintwork was free so i guess i couldnt complain! i would have loved to see some blue and black in it tho. More detail and graphics but then i prob wouldnt have wanted to use it then!

I like the work.. dont get me wrong.. I just dont like it on the canopy. I would like the design on a vase or framed on the wall.

Maybe I should quit while Im behind

Different I must say. But I'm more of a scale person & I think ALL canopies on pod & boom helis suck. Makes them look to much like expensive toys in my book. Why don't they issue a real fus with a kit, they could do it for a few extra pence.

Regards
Ross

Seems to me that ALL heli's beat the air into submission
