Taxicab WIPs

We're in the home stretch as far as the new WWG storefront is concerned, so it's going to be crunch time for me between now and launch. Before I fall off the radar, however, I wanted to leave you guys a little update to tide you over while I'm scarce.

My current spare time project is a taxicab. I also plan to do patrol car and regular sedan variants.

I didn't get to spend much time on it because I've been busy with work stuff, so it took a while to get to the point where there was something to show. It still needs door handles and some other details that I haven't gotten around to doing yet.

Ignore the goofy medallion number--I use the characters '9' and 'M' as quickie placeholders because they're the widest number and letter pair, which makes figuring out font sizes and lettering dimensions a snap because any other series of characters will fit within the same space. I'm going to be using Photoshop's data-driven graphics functionality to create several different versions of the same skin with different medallion numbers later on.
