Default Canaroc Green Hornet

The fact that it's Canaroc makes this otherwise unassuming bird somewhat cool. Mine came about when I won the resin set of Canaroc cones and reducers on Ebay a few months ago. The decals kind of hung things up after that because the scan on YORP is a bit off. I substituted the checkerboard pattern from the Canaroc Orbitron and used a resized scan of the Green Hornet instruction sheet to do the name.

Sorry about the double pic. It won't go away.

That's really sharp! I always wanted to clone something from the Canaroc lineup to add to the fleet. Your catalog decal looks great.

I still have a cone and trasition for a Canaroc Black Brant IV. Thinking that will be a winter project at this point.

Beautifully done. Is that an automotive metallic green paint?

No, I think it was a Testor's or Model Masters green metallic. It's been around the shop for years.

I like the looks of that! It has an "FSI" feel, if you know what I mean.

Yep, minimum diameter power. Minimal decals.
