Nice work man, and boy what a collection.. and I thought I had spent a lot of money on this hobby.... - but I feel you, it is way too easy to just go out and buy all the cool bodies you come across

Could you please point me to the rims used on http://img179.imageshack.us/img179/2821/59886142ul4.jpg - thanks!

Awesome work Calvin, I wish I had a hand for the small stuff like the flames on the civic. Do you know a good way of getting paint off small areas (AKA windows)? I had a masking accident

Thanks

Thanks for the comments guys.

ccondrup Those rims are from HPI. Here is a [link=http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXM956&P=7]link[/link] from Tower Hobbies.

brett65 I hear brake fluid. I have also heard nitro fuel. Try it out on a scrap piece of lexan before trying it on your windows.

hi calvin, i really like all your bodies and cars and trucks, im not as good as you, but can you tell me what you think of my two traxxas trucks. i have a stampede and a rustler, the body on the stampede i airbrushed and the green and black wheels i painted, the body on the rustler is just a stock blue body with cool decals, but the red and black wheels were done by me, i got that chrome color by using a metallic paint that makes anything you put it on look chrome, plus the wheels were already chrome, and for the black center i just used black spray paint, it came out with a matte color.
