yeah this was my last model with those tires!! Plus I have to keep you all on your toes, rights?? All the recent models I have started have new tires, with out a directional pattern. It does look like junior's car but Chad saw a rendering I did several years ago (before I started 3d) and wanted a modified version of that paint job, so no copy on this end just following what Chad wanted. The backplates actually come from a company that sells those type of images, you can see the reference to them in the bottom of the image.

Not implying you did. Customer always gets what he wants. Just mentioning I have seen the design before on Jr's car and on a Firebird, different colors though. My rendering has been copied in real life so many times I have lost count, many I have saved for proof. That is the reason my 68 is getting a complete makeover by Jason Rushforth right now, and I am hiding the new design until it is set in motion which is soon.

Mike no prob man, I did not think you were making any accusation, I was just more explaining where it came from. I knew when we started that comparison was going to be made. Kinda like painting a second gen orange, its gonna get compared!

these are beautiful. Id like to suggest thought that you add a watermark to what you place on a board for renderings and stuff. I saw a car this year at a large show that shall not be named that 90% of EVERYTHING was identical to what an innovative company had designed- right down to spoliers and 'hard to find ' parts that they made. The only thing different was the color. And I know the original design was plastered all over the internet before it was finished and Im sure some backwoods company thought it was cool to steal the deaigns- instead of paying for them like shops SHOULD be doing. YOU renderers (Is that a word?LOL) are worth your weight in gold to see the builders vision- and people shouldnt forget that!

DAMN shame.
