Temporary Paint
Hey Scalers,

Does anyone have a recommendation for temporarily painting a helicopter for a movie shoot then being able to remove the paint without damaging the underlying paint scheme?

A local filmmaker reached out to me and is interested in filming my Bo-105 for a scene in his movie but he needs a blacked out special ops paint scheme rather than my current RedBull scheme.

The floor is open for suggestions or comments.

Hey E,

Plasti Dip would be the perfect solution. Spray it on and peel it off once done.

As long as it is not going to be filmed in a close-up , you could use a liquid masking film first then just spray it flat black.

A product like Bob Dively's Liquid Masking Film would work great , just spray the whole fuselage first with it then spray it with any kind of flat black and when you're done it will pill off a lot easier than Plasti-Coat.

I have used it many time and am sure it will do what you want it to as long as you get complete coverage and are careful not to scratch it before or during filming.

Good luck , hope this helps

Don't know how much $$$$ it is either

At this point I'm just helping out a small local filmmaker to see if we can get the shot he is after. If it works out then maybe we can start talking dollars.

Has anyone else out there done some RC flying for the film industry? If so, can you share a little about your experience.

I see some company making spray bomb peel paints.. Menards has it locally.

You can even us it on auto trim.. don't like it after a few months.. peel it off and do something else.

I believe that Dr. Tim has done some flying for the studios. You might want to PM him.

I would advise against vinyl wraps as your paint on that helicopter will probably pull up when you go to peel away the vinyl. These are designed to be removed from professional automotive finishes not a painted model. I had paint get lifted off my RC Aerodyne with light tack masking tape! But what do I know I was only in the vinyl sign industry 10 years! :
