I honestly don't care for the colors, but your technique is obviously very close to flawless! Very nice execution! I like the subtle details you put in.

Great effort. Can't help you with ideas for 'Drift' style though. Add a couple of 'scale pimply faced and awkward teenagers milling about the car, and it'll look more 'authentic'!

Just kidding you drifter folks!!! Not a flame!

i found a site that translate ur name into kanji lettering so i put 'rcshells' into it n thats what came out. so i wouldnt rely on it being to accurate

rcshells is my web, i do custom painted rc bodies.
the web hasnt been updated in ages so if youd like to look at some of my more recent stuff then feel free to have a look here
