Sorry guy I shot right by your question Yes I can make a custom Body for some one but I couldent afford to do so nor would anybody be willing to pay for it. It takes me a min of 200 hours to do a mold and that's if I'm working fast A car like D/H-1 has over 1800 hours into it which I'm still in shock over! I do however have a guy that's going to pay me $3000.00 to do a copy his corvette for him But will see ! I was screwing around one night and I molded a blower on a D/H-1. So I can do things like that but I can't do that to other brands of bodies then turn around and sell them. That would kinda be stealing. It's a lot more difficult to make a car mold then people think And I'm a little to much of a perfectionist which makes it worse Heres a pic of that blower D/H-1 It was pretty wild I also put a Outlaw sirio pro "21" in a 1/10 car

I know this isn't a good comparison, but besides my Aston Martin Vanquish, that is the sweetest body I'VE EVER SEEN

So how much for a car? I don't have 3 g's so that might be kind of out of my range.

Man that put a smile on my face And as far as 3000 bones that guy is prolly B.S ing me I sell them for $22.00 to RC tech members. The 190 is doing good but I have to do somthing with the sides of it (too boring) It needs a little flair. If you want I'll take pics of the mold as I'm making it

I would be very interested in a couple of your 190mm bodies. I think they are the toughest looking car out there. Step by step procedure of building a mold would be very cool!

If you already got one w/o the sides done, I'll take it; then later on as you get the flair to the sides you want, I'll take one of those too. just pm me

BTW, how do you protect the body from damage? Do you incorporate film some how?

I take a lot of pictures as I'm working on the mold then download them and alter the pictures to see how it would look changing things around . The picture is the real mold that is alterd I just threw this one together to give you a example! Notice how straight I got the wing I do quite a few plastic molds as I go to see how they will look and also I use them for the wind tunnel tests And you probley wouldent want one before it is finished because they won't look good at all ! When I'm done shaping the mold it has to go threw the final process before it can produce a quality body .When I get my forum in here (Da Hellions RC) I will go into more detail with more pics
