    Cracker of a job mate !!

    Nice looking F10 too, must be at least 10 years old if it’s one of the last before the FH was introduced.

    I presume it’s all airbrushed work, lovely effect on those bevels 🙂

    I don’t understand this airbrushing stuff, how is it done etc…

    speaking with Mikethesign I’m – hopefully – away to take on a huge job painting the curtains on the side of a 21foot 7.5 tonne truck.

    Keen to know more about this painting….

    Great job m8, I’m afraid we dont do any painting but when you see work like this it makes you wish you could.

    Great work as usual Terry!!

    Nice to see you’ve found your way here too.

    Seasons greetings to you.

    (Terry painted trucks at Edwin Shirley Trucking where I drove for many many years, and then we bumped into each other again a few years ago through signrelated boards, funny old world).

    Terry your a very talented guy.

    …what gorgeous work Terry!…

    Very nice use of colour and layout. Any chance of a step-by-step next time you’re doing this type of work?

    that chamferring, hard edge and soft shadow is just…perfect 😎

    more please
