    Sorry about the last thread but the title was wrong!!

    SO 2 make it up 2 u guys I grabbed my HQ cam and shot sum almost done pics

    I think this is my fav custom of this size until now :D  man in under 2-3days...

    Hopefully it all fits in the altmode, other wise I'll use sum smaller gundam :( 

    Will test this 2mrow b4 my GF shows up, cuz then i'm occupied with her :p 

    C&C more than welcum, WHO said Mudflap was fugly ;)  or Screech??

    BIG UPDATE!:
    Well if I wanna keep those wide upper legs and arms, I have no way then partsform, but I do intend 2 make them look more like alternate weapons!
    Since it for my collection and everything is in botmode only I can live with it :) 
    Still undecide which mode I find more appealing though!
    Reworked a few robot parts the shoulders r a bit higher now...
    Can only get higher of I decide a hinged slot in the hood, so for now i won't :( 

    UPDATE2:
    Started doing sum small tweak but can't get the arms any higher anymore :( 
    cuz it would be 2 risky, maybe if I'll do another I will ... for now i'm satisfied!

    Looks pretty good. Only thing I'm not feeling is the waist. I don't know what it is about it, but yeah. That's the ONLY thing that I don't think looks pretty good.

    Going to leave him orange and keep him as Screech/Mudflap? Looks pretty good to me as is. Just touch up and match colors, and you've got a hit.

    From what I see: Movie Mudflap, Robots in Disguise (2001 version/Carrobots) Wedge's head, Gundam feet and arms for the legs, and I'm not too sure but I'm thinking an Alternators' hands. The rest, I'm not sure.

    I like it! Could the arms be moved to a better position, though? They are pretty low as is

    Nice job... glad that Mudflap figure managed to finally be useful for something. If everything works out, you should make a tutorial. :)

    I have to agree about the arms, but they can be fixed easily if you use that connection as more of a bicep swivel than an actual shoulder ball-joint. The torso looks a little long, but that looks like it can be fixed as well. Or maybe it's just the arms giving it that impression.

    Overall though, I'd say this is a fair ways ahead of what you had previously, in terms of getting that G1 Skids vibe.
