Cool suggestion. I may do a vote on this if there are more suggestions that can match this.

DAMMIT!

Oops! I didn't see the last part in parentheses-- but Borealis would be cool!

How about "Corona," "Sunspot," "Solar Wind," "Dawn," "Daybreak," "Lantern" or "Eos"?

Does it matter if the car shares its name with one out of canon?

While not preferable, it's not allowed.

It's like my civilian model names on some of the Lycoia models would match those from video games (the Sentinel from GTA comes to mind). But other than that, I would avoid any actual real life model names to avoid confusion.

The car-sharing-its-name-with-a-real-car problem is one reason why the CM Nova was phased out -- though at the time I was also racing a version of it online on the COT called the SuperNova.

Right I may have to change the manufacturer name as it shares it with a rather bland oldsmobile.

Come up with a few names for the manufacturer itself.
Turbine, Roultier, Essenza(model name), Astratto. The company is meant to be the canon equivalent of Morgan, Bentley and Jaguar rolled into one so any other names would be useful

Its a reference to a gamer on youtube named DanzNewzMachinima who was playing Minecraft with his friend UberHaxorNova on a series called Hershel's Land.

Its been changed to Huntley now so I hope that's ok. The PM I sent you about using the aurora will of course be changed too. To those of you who gave me model names I will keep note of these for future models. Very Happy

Future scheme, possibly for decatur. As you can see its a work in progress, If anyone can come up with a good sponsor that will work well with this scheme that would be useful.

Hmmm Could use Yotsuba for a sponsor, ask Ceej about it. Or have your company colors as those. They actually look nice. So... your supplier as a sponsor? Possible...

That base is familiar, perhaps you took a leaf out of my book on designing it? (The hood and roof part of it). I'm also glad that you decided to use the Interceptor/Brute Template that I made available, I would fix the jack holes to where the white pins are flush with the car. Other than that, no issues with the template.

IF it gets accepted, here is Michaela Carter's ATATS machine.

It is very Plissken styled but I have wanted to use this sponsor for some time and I don't think it's terrible by my standards. Yes the number needs to be changed to a 9 and its not 100% finished. I seem to be quite bad a painting the numbers, comments, concerns etc are welcome.

I'd shrink the height of the side numbers a tad. Other than that, it's a good start.

Here's an extra for the Lightning Plugz truck if you want to use it:

Working on a little something for 2013

Need to sort out the back as I'm not happy with it and the logo on the front needs shrinking so a better render will be up at some point.

Thanks guys. I have thought up plans for a Minolta spoof using the Gemini logo and maybe a Primagaz car if the WSCEC is run again.

JPS enough for ya?

Still a WIP, and the rest of the cars need to be done. They're all going to have the same basic scheme as they are part of one team.
