Speeddemon your skill is great, But i think you need to consider your color schemes and graphics a little more before Painting them. All the bodies you made are very High quality and look nice but for me at least most of them are very simple designs. Simple enough that as a buyer I would tell myself I can prolly do that. If I were you and really looking to start selling I would try busting out some complex patterns with good color patterns. Maybe keep to 3 or 4 colors, and be weary of the pink. However Florescent pink with some blue/grey and some blue/purple could be hottness.

Keep Sprayin

I completely agree.... the eclipse was the first body i did actually using the air brush, the rest i could have (and did do) with a spray can. the black out lines on the colloring of the eclipse was the only thing i have NEEDED an air brush for.

i am trying to learn how to use more of my airbrush, you have any ideas/examples of something for me to try.

nothing to fancy yet, i have seen some body's on ebay before that are just amazing, but for right now those are way to complicated for me. i need something harder then just a simple design, but something easier then those insane ones.

thank you for your comments, i really do appreciate it.

Here are some BAD pictures of it taken with my camera phone... i will take some better pictures with my real camera when i get home later...

NOTE: the tips of the flames are orange, but that does not show up in this camera, the rear is a really good looking purple, not blue like the camera made it out to be, and the front is better looking then the camera made it out to be..... to sum it up, these pictures are just a sample of what it really looks like.

so what do you guys think? from what you can tell so far.

oh yeah... he he... that was one of the first bodies i ever painted...
you should see that thing up close though, its pretty beat up. one to many hits and flips.
i call that my beater body.... for some reason i seem to have a few of those. [:'(]
as you can tell we have i wide veriety of beater and race/show bodys.
i also have the green ford truck body. i like it better. that one is cool, it turns from green to silver.

he he he, yeah i have a nice collection of bodies. but these new ones i am doing i am selling on e-bay. but yeah i have an entire room dedicated to R/C cars. one wall has 5 of our best bodys, (there are 5 of is) so thats 5x4..... plus the ceiling is lined with bodys. i thinks it totals like 48 bodies.

i should take a picture of my R/C car room for you guys, it looks pretty cool!

P.S. there are 5 of us with Nitro TC3's that is part of why i have so many bodys. only some of those are TRULY mine. all of the new ones are mine though like i said, to sell.

thank you for the compliments guys! i liked that one to!
