Looking nice indeed.

I circled a few places that looked like the edges are curving in too much.

Also, your images probably don't need to be so large (just don't want them to delete your posts)

Good work so far, I like it.

Looks good as usual mate!!! burning wrecks?? wayward driving? sounds like fun!

P.S if you are doing a PrtSc then into paint, save as the jpeg then I use the standard 'Microsoft Picture Manager' to edit and resize in there mate. Its got it in the dropdown for webmail size screen grabs

here tis, aarrrrr just pointing out this is not a WIP (thanks dave) its a resize pic for murambi..LOL sorry mate. Dont want to see these great pics deleted.

cheers bullet

P.S murambi (and anyone else) have you guys got a dropbox account or yousendit or similar?? I try to put my pics in there then just post the link to SM. Keeps the site clutter free and you can put really good hi res pics in there without the need to resize. Just a thought

i havent gotten to adding "thickness" to those parts yet dont worry about them. i have a 26 inch so i images that are about 640 by 480 really look small and you cant see much of the detail but ill make them smaller

i usually dont like to do that cause sometimes people really feel lazy(myself included) to start clicking on those links
to view images so i like to make it as easy as possible to view the images
