lol, you did not go there. Seriously, i doubt he asked for your "Oh so constructive" critism. Why not elaborate and tell him which kind of method he should choose to line his cars? Rather than trying to make yourself look better.

You don't really get a say in a style you never did nor will even attempt, XMD. I prefer not to paint and thus I have no say in how others paint their cars (unless its just aweful, since I've done plenty of model kits and miniatures that I can gladly post).

Stickers are a little bad looking. But I think we are talking about decals with wet transfer paper. They look good and go around anything, they look painted if you do them good.

yea skv012a's panel lining may be something you guys arent used to get over it... he has his style you have yours.

XXX, he sadly meant in general. Stickers look just fine and help protect the body, so I'll stick to those insted of doing decals. Only time they'd look bad is when body is flat and sticker is shiny/glossy, but its not the care here.

holey crap i didn't even know how much negative was here...
>.< can't think about what i'm gonna type here with my mom screaming and my dad bein' a cheater...

i'll try anyways.

i didn't mean to sound totally like and a-hole there. i'll try to tone it down in the future.

the car looks good, but i still think your panel lining could be better.
the decal, i don't see a point to it since it's a race queen instread of a show car.

panel lining i think should be done by "blackwashing." you take thinned out black paint (like watery acrylic) and put it in the seams, then wipe the seam with paper towel. the black stays in the seam and the excess is swiped away.

skv, i ask that you please forgive the other post.
something tells my (obviously) that i've been pretty darn biased against you, so i'm not gonna be doing that anymore.

but really, saying i have no style...and not even bothering to look at any of my past works...you got nerve bud.
but that nerve comes pretty useful at times. just not now.

he isn't talking about waterslides. he's talkin stickers..like...well..stickers

but i think he should just replicate the nismo Z. the one that's silver with the stripe graphic along its shoulder crease and a corner graphic on the hood:

Could buy that Nismo Z, no point in turning a blank body into one. As far as inkwash, I would had The car been painted and a different color, so in case of any mess I could just paint over and move on. At any rate, this thing looks good on the track with darker lines. Alot of plain white bodies look like a big blob and I'd rather line it with a marker at the very least.

If anything, stay tuned for my camo Battle Machine I'll paint either in the next few days or when I get a suitable, stock body to mess with. My only spare Veilside S2k has waaay too much goin on to fit that project, so I'll probably turn her into something simple and unique.

Once I get a hang of drifting her, defenetly. Lights-wise, I'll adapt Xmod kit eventually, hence the drilled holes in preparation for it.

Those were temps for this babe 'cuz they're from Porsche 934 and look akwards due to their offsets. I personally like the stock AWD rims, but I am getting a set of aluminums sometime next week.

Sadly, I had to touch them up afterwards; they came out too sharp and pixel'y. That and I had to retouch half after resizing, so this thing took quite a bit of time and eyesight lol.

As I said on AIM, very nice. Wait, so are you using drift slicks or plastic tires?

Very nice, although I am not too crazy about panel lining, you do it well. The tribal graphics are nice too.
