Default How to get your WIFE to let you buy as many Helicopters as you want.......

.....The other day, my wife said to me.....

Some men name there boats after their wives, some men name their homes, and castles, & towns after their wives....

YOU don't even have a helicopter named after me!!

So I got a canopy,,,and had a GIRLY paint job put on it, with some flowers and "MY TAMMY" as the title!!

Now my Daughter wants one with her name on it.....LOOKS like I get to buy a new helicopter!!!!!!!!!

Thought ya'll would like to have a peek.

Yours,

Kirk Voclain

PS: By the way,,,,Wade McGee painted this for me!! Wade McGee Trading Company!! HE only charged me $97.00!!! INCLUDING SHIPPING!!!! Canopy FX wanted $220.

Nice paintjob - who did you get to do that? or was it a home based job?

Nice shaped canopy too

JUST DON'T CRASH IT!!!! LOL, I know it may lead to jealousy if you fly your other birds instead, but it may lead to a midnight couch rendezvous if you bury that heli early.

Sharp Kirk!

I did this one myself, I got bored. And with Joe's help flame design-(I modified them a bit to be different). I modified the flames on Flexi-Sign software then cut them out on masking tape material & airbrushed it with base then clearcoated with three thin coats of clear. First came painting the Yamaha blue & adding extra coarse metallic the color has a flip-flop color change effect in sunlight.

Joe offered me a deal, on painting my canopy but I had to knock off the rust of painting. At one angle it is blue, the other it has a purple cast.

Culverson,
That is an absolutely beautiful job you did. I have been thinking about getting back into painting myself lately and your job there might get me off my butt!

VERY NICE looking job!!! Way to go dude!

Kirk,
Man, where the heck have you been dude? How's the Falcon?
I still can't believe that I didn't see you at the Fall Fest and you were 20 ' away!!!! Keep in touch bro!

Thnx. you could do it if you have had some previous experience and an airbrush lying around handy. My Pasche had a airtip go bad is one reason I had a bit of trouble getting it to spray correctly, I finally got the new part and was able to finish it.

Some of the base colors are alcohol based so if you based your first color and shot it once with clearcoat before customizing it. Then if you are not happy with the blends you can always wipe it down back to the color for canopy down to the clearcoat and not hurt your primary colors.

What would a tricked out Fury, with a 90 engine, all carbon, all digital servos, and a 601 go for?????

THAT is how much money I'm making.....IT'S GOOD TO BE a photographer.
