    Hey guys, I thought that posting this today would be appropriate given the circumstances. I shot this gallery a short time ago for the TFW2005.com Radicons gallery. Anyways, I thought I'd post them all here. This thead will be image-heavy, so just be patient for them all to load if you want to view em:

    Thanks man, I'm glad that my photos were able to attempt to provide his work with the justice it's certainly due. I'd been waiting for the most opportune time to post this gallery (I was actually going to surprise him with it being uploaded to the Radicons gallery here).

    He did actually see this gallery as I pmed him with the link right after I shot it. He was pretty happy with my photography and was even happier that I love his work so much. :)

    Amazing custom--thanks for sharing his work with us, superquad. I never got a chance to know him, but I'd seen some of his posts and his Magnus. He was very talented and he'll be missed by many here.

    It's a thing of beauty.
    Without a doubt (IMO) THE MAGNUS custom to beat.

    However they look lonely with out these.

    You know those blue racing stripes reminds me of my uncle's Ford Mustang. All and all a wicked sweet custom and tribute to Vector. Nice job superquad7, he would of enjoyed this very much.

    Truly a work of art. You can just tell how much effort and detail went into his Magnus.

    Nice work Superquad, the photos are great... It's an amazing piece all around... It's unfortunate that we won't see any others from him, he'll be missed...

    It sucks that the true appreciation of art is never seen by the artist. I never knew him, knew his art, seems alot of you did, surely he will be missed.

    I'm still a little bit in shock that he's gone. He did great work, and was always friendly and would give good advice to us beginners. He'll be missed, but remembered.
