Hey bub... nice pics... have you thought about using an airbrush to shade and highlight the cotton to "tune it down" a bit, because the burn-out smoke is not truly white. I think a little shading with light grey would go a long way with the "smoke" effect. Keep up the great work... I think your models are awesome.... :) :)

Well, since you don't have an airbrush (yet), you can also try misting a light grey primer from a varying degree of distance right from a rattle can. I sent you a PM about the 'Cuda.

Very interesting idea. A little shading to the smoke will help quite a bit. But I think it needs one more touch to add a real note of realism to the photo. See if you can place a driver figure in the drivers seat. Even if it is just the upper torso and arms for the photo, it will make it look that much more realistic. Neat picture and idea, though.
