You are officially the new Leonardo Da Vinci.

If anyone drove with that on their car body, I'd cry.

That has to possibly be the single best paint job Ive ever seen on anything that has to do with RC. I just have one question. When does class open? I need to learn how to do that.

That's what I call a $1K body. Congrats, I don't have the patience for more than 3 colors and a 1-shot paint job (all at once).

Thank you guys, I have been asked on how I "did it" but honestly all I can say is practice.... My eyes were about 3 inches away from the surface of the lexan for all the cutting. It definately killed my back, and my eyes needed rest quite often.

After all this time i cannot get over this body. Im am still dumbfounded at the artistic painstaking effort it takes to complete such a project. Absolutely blows me away everytime i look at it.

"unbelieveable"

Is the only word that makes sense. Just wow!!

You should call it the Canyonero Maybe should have painted a couple squirrels caught in the grill and a few deer sprawled out on the roof haha. Seriously though that is just the most amazing piece of body painting I've seen and I agree it was just executed so damn well from the design on. So amazing I had to post twice to this thread to convey how damn cool it is!

you should really put this on an RC to show it off. like maybe something with wheels similar to what the muggy has and you can continue the theme onto the wheels, they would make a nice canvas

Well I have finally finished a three month project today.... If my calculations are correct I have put in over 50 hours in this shell. Including prep work, cutting (About 35 in itself, main reason is all those pesky black outlines...) and painting. Everything on this shell is hand cut and masked. Not one single sticker, 100% paint.... And during the painting process I had 72 color changes. I worked on it when I could. In between customer's shells and my real job. Oh and eating.... About 90% of the colors on this shell are custom mixed. The shell is a Pro-Line Chevy Suburban. And don't worry... Once orders are cought up, a South Park version will be started. Anyways, what do you think...























Hi,wanted to bring these pics upfront again because it's.....well,jaw drapping.You are the man!Maybe the next time you do a body you could do a step by step pics guide,now that would be good.I think a lot of people would learn a lot from you!!!

Really, really, impressive. Well done. You do indeed have to buy a Savage X SS roller to put it on.
