    Looking good S.i.L. :thumb 

    My faves are the Orange movie Prime, and I am loving the monster truck Ram....I was gonna do the same thing once upon a time...I had a plan to make Devastator, but it never came to life...

    Good to see the monster truck idea looks awesome :D

    The idea is very good (I'm inspired... possibly four more for my to-do list) but the results are quite messy. With a bit of masking tape, a bit more care and some detailing, these could be fantastic.

    I'd agree with SWE here. You've got some great work here (loving the monster truck!) and it is very inspiring! I'd recommend simply touring our resources section, do some reading, and continue to hone your skills as an artist.

    I'd highly recommend my good friend wetsanding to ya. :)  In between many coats (not all), I'll take fine grit sand paper and dip it in water and sand down a coat of paint. I repeat this process until I get my last top coat is nice and smooth. I've also been adding Future floor polish at least to my top coat to give it a nice, slick finish.

    Keep up the good work man and keep those customs coming! :thumb

    not bad at all. I'd be cool if you had more than two images of each figure, and some group shots too.

    Thanks everyone

    I'm thinking of applying some weathering to emphasise the off road nature of the patrol.
