Just finished playing with Valspar Plastic Paint. For first time paint job, I think it looks AWSOME! What do you think? Does not appear to have affected the flight aspect though.

Nice job on the fading. I bet it will be way easier to orient with it in front of a dark background. I always turn to paint when I need a hop-up but don't wanna spend any money. Good job!

I have been wanting to paint mine but I have read several posts on here about the paint flaking off pretty quickly from the tail pieces. I would like to know how yours holds up.

if you get paint that is made for plastic it should not fall off, some paint actually bonds to plastic. i painted mine, its coming off the canopy when i crash but the tail finis still look nice. and i used regular paint.

Scuff up the area you are going to paint with a brillo pad or something first, it will help the paint stick and stay better. Used to do this when I raced 1/10 scale oval.
