Where does one go to find pictures of the real cars to make the paint look as close to the real thing as possible?

I know Chris has a few RCGT cars that he's done and he does have pics - guess he hasn't found this thread yet

Thanks! I can't take any credit what so ever for the looks of this body. It's right off the shelf from Kyosho. (It's actually for a Fazer gas sedan) I added a few stickers to it and repositioned the body mount holes and voila!

Great stuff! Charlie, got any more pics of the Silver/grey 350Z in the 2nd pic? Looks to be a very believable scheme.

I have seen some of those before. Its my understanding that Mazda made the shells themselves, and they were only available to those participating in an RC event that Mazda was promoting.

Mazda likes racing. They like any kind of racing.

John from OOC and I put teh body together. It was actually from one of the games...probablty Gran Tourismo...i don't remember.

Dan, We are working on the licensing part. If it passes, PTI will be selling the body to the public, "officially"
