Default My first r/c body

Here's my first attempt at painting an R/C body. 190mm Protoform Chrysler 300M. Funny thing though, I ended up buying an NMT. Now I have a nice body and no car to put it on. Go figure!

Why didn't you leave the windows clear?

Default Clear windows

Unfortunately, I kind of put the buggy before the horse. I didn't have a car yet and I figured that I'd paint the body before I bought the TC3 I was going to get.

Originally, I was going to use the spray window tint but learned that results were usually less than perfect. I also thought that the black might look cool. I still think it does. I know most people leave the windows clear and I have clear windows on my other (NMT) bodies. Call it a rookie mistake.

yeah my dad did the samething to his windows the first time. I have all my windows tinted on my cars except for the really race ones. That body is really good for a first try. Most people don't even attempt a two color job. Sometimes never. My first one was the toyota Aristo (lexus gs400) and it was exactly the same design only blue on top and silver on bottom. Look's good!

Thanks for the compliment. Maybe someday I'll have a touring car to put it on. As of now, the body is just hanging on the wall in the garage.

I just purchased a Dodge Ram body for my HPI NMT and I'm going to try and throw some flames and fades on it. Should be interesting. Thanks again!

Thanks for the kind words. I was really happy with it when I was done. Too bad it will probably end up as a decoration on the wall in my garage as I see a Stadium truck and a Monster truck coming up next on the radar .
