your body did exactly what mine did, it peals and chips really easy, To cure this, i re-sanded all the paint off, kinda use a exacto knife also and chiped the paint off, then sanded it again, then used bumper paint, this allows the aint to flex a little on top of the body, and cause it not to crack or peel or chip. It worked verry well, however you can only do this for electric helis

I like that paint. Really simple and effective. Perhaps it's time for me to take up airbrushing

Are you going to clear-coat over the top? Also, what masking tape did you use?

I havent cleared yet because I may add something to it. I used Dupont automotive paints and the masking tape I used was 1/4in flexable from hobbytown. I was able to make it all the way around the windshield with one piece and no bleeding.
The canopy was all yellow at first, but then I decided to give it a white belly to help with orientation.

That's what I was thinking of doing with the canopy. I've painted a couple of rappy canopies in that way described and like you said worked well.

Sweet. Also, which landing gear is that?
