Southmoor Paints

Recommended Posts

Hi! Thanks to the GTFO team for setting up this forum for us painters.  Anyway, as the title suggests, I paint vehicles in SL, offering a small but ever-expanding range of paints for some of the more unique vehicles you can buy.

Currently I make paints for 3 vehicles - The Rubber Bunny Halob hovercraft, the Rubber Bunny Stolly amphibious truck, and the Lusch Scout Jeep. I am about to release my first paint for the Rubber Bunny Marlin Catamaran too. I can also paint other brands too like AvA, Amok, Piaggio etc , but I tend to avoid brands like Dani and Bandit - simply because there is already so many good painters out there for these makers. I also do custom work when I have time, and more than appreciate suggestions for paint schemes.

My paint schemes could be described as fairly simple, not too elaborate, but with a focus on attention to details. I try and improve the standard textures wherever I can, and I also tend to repaint the entire vehicle including the interior where possible.

My main store is located in western Bay City HERE  , just west of the Hairy Hippo Fun land. Currently it has scaled-down displays of most of my paints and a Casper vendor on site. It has roadside access, and there's a hang-glider rezzer on the roof if you feel like flying round Bay City.

I also have another Vendor and small display shop set up at Janie's Landing Airport in North Eastern Satori, located HERE .

My paints are also available from my GTFO hub along Route 1 road in Hetrocera Atoll, in the Sagittata region. Finally, all my paints can be purchased via the marketplace HERE .

In this topic I will post pictures of new releases and updates, but feel free to post here if you have any questions or suggestions 😁

Feb 23 Update:

Here's my latest release, a new arctic-camo paint scheme for the Rubber Bunny Halob (my personal favorite vehicle in SL). Saw a few pictures on the internet of a Hivus-10 hovercraft used in Russia and decided to try and loosely replicate it. As with all my paints, it's a complete re-texture of the exterior and interior, as well as the accessories.

Mar 07 update:

Finally finished my Marlin paint 😁

It's based on US Customs dept interceptor boats, and repaints most of the exterior and interior of the boat. Use it to chase down suspect GTFO deliveries, or as an inspection vessel out on the seas, or just as a sneaky disguise 😉

Available on MP here: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Marlin-Paint-Applier-Customs/16818530

As usual, a demo is available at my main store in Bay City: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Bay City - Truro/202/139/25

Goodness me, who would do such a thing? I'm shocked at the very thought!

Mar 25 Update.

i decided to keep in theme with the Marlin, and do another RL-based scheme, this time a police boat used by several counties in England. As normal for my stuff, almost everything gets repainted, and with this one i've included 2 hull style options, as well as authentic Honda outboards.

Available on MP here: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Marlin-Paint-Applier-Police/16925089

You can see it inworld on level 2 of my main store here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Bay City - Truro/202/139/25

Update time 😉

No new releases yet, though I've got a few projects underway at the moment. The update is that both my main store in Bay City, and my Freight Hub in Sagittata, now have Casper Holo-vendors on site.

This allows you to rezz a demo of ANY paint scheme I've made, on a full-sized vehicle. The added bonus is that both locations have saved quite a few prims, so I am toying with the idea of making my main store another GTFO Hub - it would have road access as well as a rooftop area for helicopters or airships.

Since I don't need as much space in the building any more, I've converted level 3 into a vehicle art gallery. If you've got any nice pictures you want to see displayed there (need to be in 4:3 ratio approx) then hit me up in-world 🙂

As for projects, here's  a teaser:

April 15 update.

Well the one positive from the recent spate of TP and sim-crossing crashes, is that I am getting more time to paint 😁

So, I've managed to finish off one of the paint schemes i showed in my previous post: It's called "Killigrew", and that's the RL name of a cheetah marine catamaran delivered to Falmouth Harbour. I've made it about as accurately as I could given the limitations of SL, and I think it's come out pretty good. Like most of my paint appliers, almost every single part of the boat is re-textured.

Available on MP here: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Marlin-Paint-Applier-Killigrew/17059593

Full-size demo can be rezzed in-world at my main store or at my GTFO Hub.

May 18 - update time.

Here's my latest release, dubbed "Mirage". It's a paint scheme for the Rubber Bunny Halob, based on a real life hovercraft used by the Sheraton Mirage Resort in 1988. They had 6 of these hovercrafts, which they used to take passengers from the Gold Coast to Brisbane, site of the World Expo in 1988.

Full repaint as usual, so that's exterior, interior, and most of the accessories. However, this only paints the LONG cabin Halob.

Found on MP here: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Halob-Paint-Applier-Mirage/17282193  and there's a demo to rez at both my main store in Bay City and my freight hub in Sagittata.

 

In other news, my main store is now a GTFO Hub - accepts road vehicles and helos/airships. Helipad is on the roof and trucks can drive round the back to unload.

Update time (yes seriously.. again) 😉

Couldn't resist doing a paint job for the new Zamani Torero muscle car (yeah, they aren't fooling anyone with that name... it's a Mustang haha)

Here it is, a replica of the Shelby GT500 Super Snake

Available at my main store of course (including a rezzable demo) for 75L and on MP here: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Torero-Paint-Applier-Shelby/17287893

Update time (15th June)

Decided to do a companion paint scheme to my most popular paint, that being the "Polar" paint i make for the Rubber Bunny Halob.

Anyway, this one is called "ARCTIC", and it's made for the amphibious Stolly.

Full repaint of exterior and interior parts, and also includes 3 separate wheel colour options - heck you could change the wheels every single time you drive the Stolly if you wanted 😁

Available on MP here: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Stolly-Paint-Applier-Arctic/17460494

Also available (including a demo) from my main store in Bay City here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Bay City - Truro/202/139/25

Available now for 100L and includes number plates too.

Update time (July 17th)

New paint for the Rubber Bunny Marlin. This is a generic nautical-themed paint dubbed Charter1. Repaints all the usual stuff inside and out, includes Suzuki outboards, and comes with 3 hull options. You can have the plain imagery on the side, or a couple with sign writing (Marine Charter Tours or Blake Sea Explorer).

As usual, available from my main store, my Sagitatta Freight hub, or from Janie's landing, and of course on MP too:

https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Marlin-Paint-Applier-Charter-1/17664216

 

In other news - if you own the Rubber Bunny Halob hovercraft and ever felt like tinting the Jerry Cans, well now you can. At all of the above places, I have a box you can grab, which includes a white, untinted version of the Jerry Cans. Just manually apply it and use the in-world colour picker to tint them how you want. Instructions are supplied - oh, and its FREE 😀
