You should check out the Dauphin helis we painted for the MD State Police... I'd link it but I'm not very deft with this ipod.

laid down the base yellow tail. as soon as thats dry enough, i'll tape over with the black bands. then it's just touch ups, details and she's all done.

Very cool, absolutely original! If I didn't know it was your state flag, I'd still think it was a cool piece of abstract art.

starting off HFAY s14 with the HSV. picked up a body and got it painted. you can see the cuts i made in the hood to accommodate the RR spring over suspension. they are much longer than necessary but i followed body lines on the hood.

had a custom request for a variant on this theme so i took a leap of faith and went monochromatic, slanted the theme and added some warning stripes front and rear. turned out great! almost don't want to let it go :p

while the audi r8 is done, i'm still trying to get the PN window in correctly. the mold has lots of air bubbles and is not a perfect fit by any stretch. you can see i've had to put weights on it just to get the sides to reach the body otherwise i'd have 1/8" gaps aound the edges. this one is not there best job for sure. i'm going to have to go back and secure the back end later wehn i can reposition the weights for a tight fit.

Unfortunately the quality is not up to par on the windows. They work best if cut apart and installed individually.

R8 with the lexan wing is not as nice as if you had the real wing.
All cars look great.
Great work!
