This post is me completely caving under pressure, people keep asking me to post my latest work.

Okay, so I'm still too busy to take anything on for now until I've got through the rest of the monumental back log I created for myself if you have a shell with me, it's in the queue and I'm working through them all gradually. I've halved what I had here.

These are a few of the nicest ones I've done recently.

This is quite old now but a new shell for Jon Hazelwood of Nemo Racing and Agama fame. I'm already doing another one for him so this is already out of date.


A little tiny tenth shell, damn it these are small, I'm so used to working on 8th the size of these always scares me. So Simon asked for slime, which is a bit cliché so i wanted to do something a little different. It's all retina burning bright fluoro colours and looks much better in the flesh.


Another one for Nemo Racing, this will look more interesting when all the sponsors are on it, the colours are the Audi Rally colours, just adapted to fit on the Agama shell.


This is for Andy who's been my most patient customer. He gave me a very loose brief essentially leaving it all to me just saying he wanted it bright. So, this is what happens when you have no clue and say to the painter - "I don't mind, do what you want" Very pleased with this one. And without trying to sound like some sort of posh restaurant menu we have here, graphite base with holoice filagree details, white pinline and then the usual retina burning bright fluoro red background with more fluoro stars going in yellow orange and pink ove the top.


Hope that satisfies those of you that have been asking, more at the end of the week when I've got this batch done for Neo buggy

Sounds like your still snowed under then Ian. I suppose your work is like a pint of Guinness, things come to those how wait. Might be a paint theme in there as well.
All still top work though Ian, keep it up.

Extreme dude - Cheers fella, they all look much better in the flesh.

Mike - learn a program - Inkscape, Corel, whatever - buy a cutter. I would without a shadow of doubt say it's been my most worth while spend, ever. It's helped me do stuff that would either be impossible or would take days, don't get me wrong I spend ages on the computer getting it right before it goes onto the shell but if you have a repeating pattern or anything it's very very good to have a cutter. I've got a Roland STX 7 Sticka but those Craft Robo's are a quarter of the price and equally good. Order yourself one up fella, you won't regret it !

Badger - ah, a new theme I see, Black White and Gold... hhhhhmmmmmm this could be interesting.

Do I need to change my signature now ? Good things come to those who wait ?

Thanks guys for all your kind words, makes it all much more worth while

You've been flouro blinded mate... It's dreadful I thought it was nighttime when I came out the garage after spraying it, couldn't see a thing. Luckily Rich was prepared with his welding mask when he unpacked it or he'd have been off work for days.

I would just like to say a big thanks to Ian for the top job on my Durango410 shell it took a while but the job is stunning. I had no idea what design I wanted but my only request was for it to bright and easy to spot colour and Ian has not let me down.
Here are some pics of the shell on and off the 410.I have tried to get some good pictures of the shell and to try to get the effect of the paint but the photos just don't do it justice.
I cannot wait to get out racing with this work of art, So look out for it around West Bridgeford, Broxtowe and Mansfield.





Here is a link to more photos of the shell CLICK HERE
