    Ok. So here's an update. With some magic from Fallenkia and Koof. Was supposed to have posted this for all to see earlier.

    I'm contemplating if I should do him in glossy metallics or flat.

    I'd say flat and weathered like a really old train. Would love to see a paintjob like that from you. :)

    Flat, weathered with rust stains all over? Frankly, I am very undecided.

    Casting my vote for flat & weathered - but if you're hearts on hitting this with your normal job of high-gloss metallics, it'll look great too...

    I have to agree with the whole flat and weathered look. You're amongst if not the greatest at the bright and shiny candy paint jobs. Those are phenomenal, each one is great. Yet let us see your not-so-bright side. Please? On the upside you could do the inside of the trailer bright and clean. Because, well, it's on the inside - where the rain is not. Lest it's not supposed to be. Ah well I'm ranting... that's my :2c: .
