Default My first SCT body!

Please critic as it will not hurt my feelings!

I used Tamiya rattle cans: Neon Green, Bright Silver, Black and neon yellow

The Yellow can was about empty but I took a chance and then I back it with the bright silver and it didint work out that well for me.

on the rear end i used the bright silver as a lite coat then backed it with the black and I like the way it looked.

I also backed the green with the bright silver and it added a hint of metallic to it.

Here are the finished shots after some stickers and cut to fit.

Dont mind the holes I am getting it ready for venting.

I removed the film also and the colors popped more.

Please let me know if you see where I can improve. Again all rattle cans and tape.
