    It's all in the details... latest paint job!

    Painted this up today for Revoman. Lots going on with this shell. 100% hand cut and airbrushed, no stickers! Main color of the body is a marbled pearl black. Which really doesn't appear in any of the pictures, outlined in rough pin of pure black. Next layer is pure white. Bright blue flames up front outlined in white. Monster Import logo on the hood, and Ford Raptor logos on the sides. Ford logo on the tailgate. All the door handles, vents, grill, window trim, and bed have been cleared in flat to get rid of the shine.

    I used to go to his old shop that was in his basement of his house back in the 80's. Then I dropped off the face of the rc world until recently.

    I would like to have a custom painted body, but it would get destroyed and I would have to hack it up just to get it to fit lol....

    very nice job. I bet a body like that would sell on eBay for $80 easy. There is a guy here localy where i live that paints bodies and charges $20 min up to the most i heard was $175 and it had alot of colors and detail. Average id say $50-$80. So what im saying is you have a talent that is in high demand and you could make some money. Again awesome paint job
