Ralphees NIX'91

Post by ralphee »

OK, its took me an age, waiting for a few bits and bobs was a pain, but i got there in the end with the basic roller. The wheel dots just lift off as there on magnetic sheet, so when i run it, i can just whip off the wheels and not keep having to cut more vinyl haha.
It'll be topped with a custom painted Viper in the AM, and a few other bits to be adding, but I'm really happy how it turned out, huge thanks to Niki and Jake, so from here, its time to collect a bit of a spares back up, off to Shapeways!

I like the clean look. So this is best of both worlds, a runner and a shelf queen? Cool 8)

Haha, thanks buddy, sadly, i can't paint like that, thats the wonderful work of Kifopaint, took my flying eyeball design he created for me to the max here! I will get a Masami done though, just to see how it looks.
