I like 'em dirty, like they just finished a 24-hour race.

I like it! Is it photoshoped, or it's a real paint job, or maybe a real race scars :) ?

I used a little sand paper, and some techniques carried over from seeing what model railroad guys do...chalks and a wash of india ink/alcohol. The city in the background is on my laptop screen and the car is on the keyboard covered by a sheet of paper from the printer. :) I photo a lot of small cars this way. There's a little Photoshop, but just to blur the background.

Yeah, but it will be next week, I'm out of town and forgot to grab it before I left. :(

Pretty good! Sole comment though is that it's hard to simulated ripped decals at this scale without using something a little rougher than sandpaper -- I would recommend emery board in order to start getting some texture going in the livery. Great job on the India ink though, haven't seen it done in Mini-Z yet. :)
