Default Skyline Puzzle Body (UPDATED! NEW PICS)

Well I've started my slow tedious project on my 300mm body
I asked skills if I could borrow his idea and he allowed me to. Here is my progress so far, I have the black outlines already


Body with just the normal masks I put on


Taping up the whole body!


Drawing the design....


Slowly cutting out the design, cutting thin lines, which requires two cuts, one on each side of the line


The little slivers of masking tape that was being cut out


After 20 some hours and three days.... the cutting is done





Spraying with black paint for the outlines to come out




That's as far as I got so far kiddies!

Alright! I painted it and here is how it looks like!













It still needs a couple things, but it's mainly done!

it is 1/10th but it's for a super nitro, so it's wider and longer. If you attempted to put that on a regular touring car it would cover it. The twin engine idea was some what complicated, some obstacles that I had to go over, but I got verything to work out properly. It's not a pain to get running. Plus it's very unique, so it draws attention everywhere.

blah... too bad it's on ebay. I'm trying to sell the truck itself at least. I can't afford to hold onto this RC truck anymore. I got to let some of them go for school.

i saw it on ebay i want to bid but i don't got the cash. my mt is going to have a .21BB from a savage slammed into it in a couple of weeks i hope it will be nearly as fast as yours.

But i need some ideas for a body, i wanted to go for a for a yellow with torn checkered flag coming off the front stretching past the wheel wells but not quite to the windshield, and some chrome detailing. what do you think would it work and look good???
