    A-yo! Anyone else here think Six-Speed looked boring as all hell? Grey tires and grey wheels? WTF? So, anyways, I went about and did the following one night. All it took was a couple paints, a brush, and a few beers. Comments welcome!

    Wow, you guys are harsh. Do you realize that working on a small scale like that does not leave much room for error?

    I think you did an awesome job. The headlight and taillight details are well done.

    There's harsh, and there's calling it like it is. This is the latter. Nothing harsh about those comments at all.

    I appreciate the intent and it looks good, but the result could be a touch cleaner in certain spots.

    I had four beers - I'm a light drinker. And in all honesty, the car looks a lot better in person. But as Ops said, have you ever done anything on a scale that small? Dude - I put silver on the mirrors after I painted just THEM black. Have you also noticed that Six-Speed as LOW PROFILE tires? LP tires on a toy no taller than a quarter-inch is a BITCH to paint. I'm surprised I did as well as I did...

    Yeah looks good. I'm new starting out myself kinda scared to put my repaints up. Compared to some of these people they look really bad but I did make a cool Cliffjumper decal mod once.
    Great job keep them coming.

    Post em! Maybe we can offer suggestions on something you yourself find displeasing about them. I'm noob to kitbashing myself. Just last night I finished a scratch-built pushbar for my Alternator Bodyshop figure. Pics later today!

    Constructive Critism vs. Being Just Plain Harsh

    Yeah, there's being brutally honest and being constructive. "a little messy" isn't the harshest of critisms, but could that be stated another way? Also, could the critism be worded so that it doesn't just state an opinion, but it also helps the artist improve? For instance: "It seems that the paint job turned out decently well, but you might want to take a Q-tip and clean up some areas. Also, if you take an exacto and LIGHTLY scrape off excess paint (being careful not to scrape the plastic underneath the paint), you can also remove unwanted, excess paint. Keep up the good work!"

    Now the critism is helpful to the artist. The opinion of what needs to be improved upon (the paint job) is still there, but there is advice on how to help the artist improve.

    Personally, I'd like to say good job on the photos! Just the fact that we can look at the detail so closely says alot about the photos! Keep up the good work!
