Finally finished painting a canopy for my beater heli. This is the third canopy I've painted so far.

Excellent job. How much time do you think you have into it?

Jeff,
No idea really on time, as I do a bit each night. I take my time and don't rush. The windshield alone was about 3 hours with masking. I probably have a total of 20 hours including buffing.

Wow that's a lot of time. I only can spare about 2 hours, I have two little boys they keep me busy.

Again great job.

What is actually on the windshield? It looks like a design with red candy paint over it.

Well Furron, this is probably more info than you really wanted but here are some in process pics.

Here's the tapeout.

Here's everything except the windshield.

Here's the windshield from 3 angles.

Here's the windshield after the candy and fade.

Now as far as what is in the windshield. It is a 3D version of the Airtronics logo, set in a port or window, with a clockworks background.

Thanks, now that was right on point! What kind of vinyl cutter did you use for the Airtronics design?

Everything looks great!

Furron,

I have a 24" laserpoint from USCUTTERS that I use for vinyl. It's no Roland, but it does a great job for a $300 dollar cutter.
