New Project!

Post by The_Helicopter_Pilot » Fri Feb 08, 2013 11:05 am

I've got this eurocopter dolphin, and I'm going to repaint it, so give me some scheme ideas!

Here's some I found...

I need more ideas, or choose one of these, which looks better?
While y'all are choosing/looking, I'm going to break this heli down!

I unfortunately ran out of green, so I got to come up with a color for the bottom, and I'm thinking black maybe??

You should've left "The Flying, Whistling, Sh@t can" the way it was. Put a 50 cal sniper rifle and a M240 in it and you could've had a Hitron Helo (probably too small). Or make a flight deck dio with it and put a bunch of guys in beach chairs catching a tan, and you'd have a typical AVDET. I get to run out and fuel these u/w.

I think the best advice is to think about getting yourself an Airbrush and some Testor Acryl Paint. Don't be afraid of using it alot of peopleare afraid of the airbrush when they start. Just Dive in and clean it when your done Always

This was jus for fun, so I didn't break out the airbrush like I do on my plastic models.

Well going with the theme of Afghanistan war right now i think you should repaint it with desert camo. It would look way better that way in my opinion too but it it just an idea.
