One of the things I've been enjoying lately has been doing custom paint jobs for folks at the shop. A lot of folks either don't care to paint themselves or don't have spaces where they're able to spray paint or airbrush, so it's a useful service to offer and it's allowed me to be pretty creative. 

Most everything I do is painted either with Tamiya or Vallejo Model Air acrylics, though in some cases I use Tamiya Polycarbonate spray. Hope there's some stuff in here that folks think is worth paying for! LOL.

Thanks Tim! I tried to find a picture of the McLaren F1's I did for you because that's still one of my favorite pieces of work.

Justin, your paint work is done neatly. They should sell very well. :)

The 'For Sale' part was my error, now removed. I took his post to be an ad, which after speaking with Justin yesterday, I learned it was not. 

 

That's why his thread is in the forum.

I should hope so. These are all already sold pieces of customer work! LOL. Like Greg said, a minor misunderstanding led to a temporary edit.

 

This is just to show off some of the work I've done on commission for folks at my shop because I've found it's a great outlet to be creative.

Freshly done Lancer Torino for local Al Rogers. Colors are Tamiya Fluorescent Green rattle can (backed with Vallejo White) and Tamiya Titanium Gold X-31 acrylic. 

This mold must have taken a beating over its life because the detail is pretty much gone. All the same Al was pretty psyched about his new 4.5" stocker. :)
