    Golly, I can't believe it's been so long since I've actually posted something! Just a quick heads up before I jump into my work: I've shot some galleries today and I'm hoping to continue to update some things. While I've not posted things in a while, I have been working on several different things. I've had this guy finished for some time now, but I never shot a gallery for him or even started a thread for him. I posted him here in my "Alternators Police Graphics (voting)" thread originally (even played a guessing game on the original head mold :lol ). Also, I've created my own set of "Prefecture Police" decals. You'll see more of them later :D  I removed the US "G1" deco to make Streetwise more authentic (in Japan this car is actually used for a police cruise; in the US it is not).

    Well, without further delay, here is my Alternators Streetwise:

    Come again? All of the reference photos I've seen had the same characters, just in different order. If you can show me (or effectively explain) where I've erred, I'd very much like to fix things. Thanks in advance! :thumb

    I've really enjoyed making new heads by modifying some existing heads. It's really a blast! Thanks for the props guys! I really appreciate it :)

    I am not expert in this, my Kanji reading skills are at the age 4 level currently, but looking at the images, it would appear that the word left side of the car has been almost mirrorred onto the right side of the car.

    So, for example, it looks like the left side says P O L I C E while the right side says E C I L O P.

    What you have done may be right but it looks a little odd. I would have just had the characters in the same order on the right hand side as they are on the left.

    Gotcha. I could change the labels on mine, but the BTA WRXs of course I can't do anything with. Oh well, at least it'll be consistent. :)  Thanks for the help guys! :thumb

    SQ is always on point with his customs! I remember seeing this in your personal photo galleries, and it looks fantastic! Kudos as usual!

    you know, I was looking for the "superquad mod" to the figure, and aside from the head (which I initially thought was from alt. mirage) I couldn't find. then I saw the spoiler and the wheels :thumb
