    Pics of Painted CP Body

    I wanted to keep it fairly basic. I am going to continue to practice but I do not need these extra bodies lying around. Do you they would move on ebay? Anyway, What do you think? I am going to move to a different paint scheme on the next ones I paint.

    This is the truck



    Here is the CP

    Thanks Guys, Cutting the body was harder than I thought it would be. I used a drummel to finnish off all the cuts. Is that the normal method?

    i use scissors to get the cuts close, then i use a dremel with a sanding drum to finish it off. i get perfect lines and it comes out better than if i were to use a hobby knife. i have a very very steaady hand though so that might be why i am pleased with my results. your body looks great. once you get a method that works for you, stick with it.

    i trim the flat part that goes perpendicular to the side of the body taht way i can set the body onto the truck. i can get a feel for how its gonna look this way. then while its sitting there i mark all of the places i am going to need to cut holes and stuff later on.

    I think it looks just ok, not bashing you, i cant even paint, but it looks like a poor atempt of the body on the 1st pic, the 1st one just looks MUCH BETTER, mainly that stronger blue ...

    Revo eye- the second body looks better in person.

    The paint is the same on both but I layed down metal flake on the second body. The metal flake does not take good photos. Notice the different blue and the fact that it shows up on the rocker of the last pic. I am going to try to cover my expenses by selling these on ebay, but I am going to have to learn how to take some photos first.
