This is my latest RC Shell. It's a Surging brand Celica XX SA60. The JDM version of the MA61 Celica Supra.
Body is 200mm wide so it can accommodate these Speed Way Pal Panasport G7 +10 Offset with ease.
I used 6 colours on this one. Anodised Aluminium, Anodised Blue, Anodised Pink, Metallic Purple ( flip ) Gun Metal and Black.
I cut all the masks on my plotter and while the design is how I envisaged, the colours are not an exact match for what I had in mind.
I debated for a while about the purple flip paint. I probably made the wrong choice over standard purple, but it still has a mystery to it.
In most light it looks more grey than green but when it pops in purple it looks great.
The design is based on a lot of shakotan style cars from this era. '82/3 and the rear lights were styled in a similar fashion.
The body had a shortness to it as the scale was not correct, however this little drag wing gives a length that it needs. It really makes a difference.
This 80s period had a lot of people running on deep steel rims, they look almost as good as the G7 wheels...
... but definitely more period correct.
Looks great! I forgot to screw on the huge exhaust for the shoot. haha.
The Panasport G7 are way too big for a car of this period, but the effect is very special and updated. The titanium is a great match for this car. Very happy.
Here's a few shots in a darker position. Front details were from an old Levin I had. Luckily it donated some toyota emblems and TRD stickers.
There are a lot of small imperfections, but it was a quick paint job.
The effect is still very cool!
Light plays tricks on this shell.
As you can see.
