Beautiful work with the brush John. That's something I need....a good hand with an air-brush. ;) Truly a great bit of painting mate, I love the look you've achieved. :D ;)

The Jag turned out Beautiful, John, I have to say my favorite parts have to be the front end (nothing against the rest of the car mind you!), I just really like the silver & red, they go together beautifully!, also like the front & rear wheels.
