Chap Mei 'Chinook' Helicopter
Navy, Red, Silver, Black Spray Paint
334th Stickers


I saw a couple of these helicopters done up in Cobra colors, here on JoeCustoms, as well as around the internet, and I knew I wanted to have one for myself. I really tried to push the idea that this was a Viper Transport by painting the helicopter to match (as best I could) the traditional paint scheme of the Viper action figure. I had plenty of help & suggestions along the way, and this is what I came up with.

I ran out of navy paint before being able to do the side door, and the replacement paint I had was not the same type. You might be able to see in the photos that the side door is of a different finish than the rest of the helicopter body, but short of re-doing the entire thing, it's the best it can be.

Besides, once this is hanging over Cobra Island, no-one will ever notice.
