Default Weathered Vanquish VS4 body

I just finished this up with an old school yellow and white and made it look weathered. Never did this with a light color like that and I think I like it lol. It is all painted on the outside and will look sick with its interior when I get done with it.

Not gonna lie...

That. Looks...


AWESOME!
are those bodies available separately now? I saw the grill from VP posted up on rpp so I expected the body available soon.
Really nice work and makes me want to try one of those bodies someday.

I like what youíve done with the paint. We see too many shelf queen vehicles that never get dirty.

Thanks for posting!

This body came from the kit but I bet it will be coming out as just the body at some point.

I like to make my paint jobs as real as possible and gain character every time you hit the trails. It has layers of what you see in the rusted areas so the scratches will be similar.
