Thanks for the feedback and the warm welcome guys.
To Ford.boy. I am currently using Photoshop 5.0 which is a really good program if you get into using the layers and filters. Some of the filters I used include motion blur to get the 'moving' effect, and the look of the wheels turning is done using the radial blur.
I also find the magic wand selection tool priceless is creating a lot of these effects.
I have been a keen reader of FF for a while but this has been my first ever posting... Hopefully not the last :)
Thanks guys and keep up the good work!
PS: The BA Falcon is brilliant... May even consider trading in the EA S for one :)
