Default Canopy tint tutorial

Hi all,

Spent the better part of today experimenting with some tinting of canopies, as I just couldn't bare the thought of slathering bright yellow food coloring on this prowler. Finally found a method that I'm happy with and figured I'd share. Let me know if you got any questions.

This is so cool......thanks for posting. Have you tried to spray with gold? Just curious how it turned out. The copper tint really works for the EA-6B, but most of what I need would be with the gold. I also have a question, and again just being curious......why not spray the inside of the canopy!
Again thanks for posting!

I did try gold on the aft part of the 16 cockpit and it must didn't do anything for me. I guess you could try it for other birds and see how it compares. As far as the inner part of the canopy, seems to habe more of a tendency to leave runs when spraying the inside. I had better control over the effect from the outside.
