Paint job for friend with cancer.

If not appropriate please move or remove.

A friend of mine has terminal cancer and loves his big R/C helicopters so i have just finished a multi coloured paint job for him as we all know it will be his last which saddens me a lot, so this had to be done and done right.

Few pics from early on in prep to final clear coated finished paint job ready for him to rebuild and hopefully fly soon.

In primer after much glasswork prepping




With surface detail added and in white base coat.




Further along





Progress progress over several days.



Getting there




and done ready to go







Needs the mechanics, gas turbine engine and all windows fitting which he will do himself.

That looks stunning mate - looks a superb job on the paintwork. Looks a fair size helicopter…

A fantastic thing to do and really hope it brings your mate some happiness

Many thanks for your support and comments on this project, yes it's fairly large as can be seen with it beside my wife's Toyota C-HR.

5 weeks from start to finish, all text and logo are in pearl white paint.





and in my garage store room waiting for next weekend so he can collect it.


Big 205 litre oil barrels etc.
