Completed the canopy paint job after 2 weeks. It was sanding and sanding and more sanding. Each colour was sprayed , sanded, sprayed and sanded again to ensure a smooth surface. After which clear coat was applied and lightly waxed.

The top coat was done.

Bottom sprayed in flouro green.

Some parts of the paint peeled off when masking tape was removed. Had to sand and spray again.

Canopy cover was painted from the inside with some leftover tamiya black acrylic paint. Sand it rough first to give the paint something to bite.

Lustrekote crystal clear was applied to give it a shine and fuel proof the paint. The instructions stated it was fuel proof only up to 15% nitro.

The completed canopy! Avant inspired colours kekeke.

Looking good.
