Clean, sharp, tight and tidy lines. Top banana, are you using fastmask or fine line tape? Looks super.

Cheers for the comments everyone

Shell is all masked with RCS Graphic Worx liquid mask, 4 coats brushed on, then it's all cut out by hand. My airbrush clogs a lot and is generally a bit unreliable so a few hairy moments ! The shadows are not as delicate as I would have liked.

Fantastic work
I do believe Andy is a graphic design guru , he could probably blow paint on the shell and make it look good lol.

non the less your work is stunning Andy, if I'm not mistaken you used to run 1:10th touring cars at Garforth? if so I remember your xray body you did, the one with the big X down the side, blue/green and silver if I remember correctly.

keep it up and keep them coming

Bloody hell - that's a right memory you have there !

Found this from 2004 - my Xray Shell ! This was painted using Frisk - Film, which is a big sticky sheet of masking stuff that you cut out and stick on / remove. No liquid mask in those days !

Default B4 Shell for my Pals Son.

Just rattled off a B4 Shell for Colin Gill's lad - Thomas.
He liked the McLaren racing colours, so I made something up loosely based on those colours.

These are some really great shell designs, and different to the norm.

The fact you're a designer by trade really comes through in your paint jobs, really nice Andy, clean, crisp, great colours, all good !

Cheers for the comments guys
Im sure it will look good when it's on the car, painting the wing all black, so it should look well with the odd white sticker.
