some inputs from me (hopefully constructive)

for mass-marketing purpose : tho holes in the nose,.. the angle of the holes are a bit steep,... make it a bit shallower (lower the hood) and widen the hole,... it's make the front looks a few million dollars more

from my point-of-view,.. the body will be classed in outlaw class with that wing,... so why not make it as a single seater design (with a canopy), the engine may still be covered, but the frontside of the body will be narrower,.. I'm not an aero-scientist,... but I think it'll cut the oncoming wind easier with a narrower front (smaller canopy style instead of full-width windshield type)

I like to see bodies in black or white, I'd really love to paint my first batch of hellion bodies in white (with my own stripes ),.. and incognito black (full) with black wheels too

I mentioned to hellion last-time about custom-made bodies (I need some for 200mm and superten chassis) things in my wish-list are :

- 1991-1993 Mitsubishi Galant VR4 AMG spec (very rare in real life)
- replica of my custom 1991 Galant (yes, that purple one, I'd prolly have 10 copies made for me only at least, hehehe)
- 1995 Galant VR4 (have you ever seen one?! hehehe)
- 1999 Galant Super VR4 (very limited touring edition)
- Pagani Zonda (we might get sued seriously for this one, hehehe)

How much do you charge for a body? I have some things that I have wanted on my cars for a long time.

Looks really good! I haven't read all the posts but I'd like to make a few points about centerline balance. Symetry can affect the handling if it is out of balance of course. But, it appears that your mold looks very symmetrical. I can see you are using dividers and calipers, but I was wondering if you are using section templates to balance it out? I know this may be alot more extra work than it is worth, but since I work as a modeller in the auto industry, if you want to try I would be willing to share a few tips how to set up some templates.
