Thanks Jeff. I've been inspired lately by a couple of my favorite rc painting artists and I've been trying to fine tune a few techniques. I was really happy with this one.

Beautiful! That paint scheme really does that body justice. It's a mostly straight-ish body, straight body lines, and the scheme matches it well. It looks fast standing still, even without a chassis underneath. 8)

OOOHHH, I like it!! :shock: The paint scheme is perfect!!
I really like those old square body GM vehicles from the '70's and 80's.
That Malibu will make an excellent drag car!! 8)

Sold this one to a buddy, but I was tempted to swap out the 69 nova body on my DR10 for this one.
