Thanks all for those replies it meens alot to me. It is fiberglass I got it with a trex se v2 airframe that I got from a guy here on rr and it is a copter x canopy.I didnt know it till it arived but the guy primered it like crap for pics and to try and hide the fact that it was copterx so I sanded off all the paint and decals and as I am an airframe and powerplant student I recently passed a composite course so I fixed all the cracks and flaws with f.g. cloth and vaccuum forming and then sanded and sanded and sanded and painted I just couldn't color sand the flame orange auto air water base but the yellow is enamel so it was color sanded before the auto air went on the bulk of the orange in the front and the yellow are on a white base. then the clear has four sanded coats. I'm glad you all like it I am considering doing some custom jobs I am in no way a drawing artist and I don't do alot of airbrushing this is my first airbrush set and first complete paint job with the airbrush but I think it is fun and I would like to do more in the very near future. again thanks a mil for the kind words, Dave
