The countdown/preview was not appreciated apparently, so I just decided to post it as is. Here it is: My Dyna Storm Re-Release with genuine Tamiya Carbon hopups, awesome Nimrod Racing wheels and now to finish it off, Hi-Cap Dampers, and a custom paintscheme!
Late February I decided it was time to get my Dyna Storm shelfer a painted bodyshell to compliment the looks and specification of the car. I wanted either a box art car with one translucent sidepod, or a custom paintscheme with 'Energizer Industrial' as a main sponsor. I chose for the last one, as for two years I already had the idea to paint a Dyna Storm in these colours with this sponsor.
The project took a lot of time. I needed to find, a NIP body, Hi-cap dampers to match the colours for the body, work on the design, get custom decals and get it professionally painted. Kokuzu painted the shell, and the custom decals came from WillyChang.
The Design is based on the box-art Dyna Storm (as it's a VERY good base to start with - it really compliments the shape of the shell), but it's been changed to match the looks of the line of Energizer 'Industrial' batteries. It has Silver (PS-12) Sidepods, a Black (PS-5) Cockpit and Smoked (PS-31) Windows. Like on the battery, a yellow line divides the two colours. The wing was made to replicate the battery even more accurately so the looks match the battery even better. Besides the main sponsor, I had to chose some extra sponsors. One of the sponsors I had in mind, Dunlop, is not shown on the car (yet). I wanted it as tire lettering, but the vinyl decals won't adhere properly over the curvature of the side of the tire. I will try to get some waterslide decals for this to solve the problem, or paint the existing tire lettering yellow to get a similar look.
After 5 months and a lot of work, this is the result. I absolutely LOVE it! I really want to thank Kokuzu for the awesome paintjob and WillyChang for the amazing decals!
