    ROTF - Custom The Twins (Skids & Mudflap)

    - This custom has been repainted over and completed with every details from the Revenge Of The Fallen movie.
    - Realistic rust and weathering effects based on movie
    - Added decals to achieve a more accurate detailing level

    *I used a white background decal paper, so the unwanted parts are not that clear or transparent* any guidance to make improve on this is appreciated !

    Looks great to me. I envy the rust effect on 'em. I'm trying to add teh weathered effect on my Rampage WIP, but yours is times better.

    Is that the Dutch flag or the French one on popsicle decal? :x

    Let me guess, it will be in ebay soon? If so, good luck, probably will fetch insane amount of money like all your customs do.

    Looks awesome! What is white background decal paper? I don't use them so I don't know what the difference would be. I just thought all decals were the same.

    Great paintwork, as usual. Especially on the weathering! :thumb 

    The white decal paper kinda sticks out like a sore thumb, though. To fix that, you'd have to either re-do the decals using clear paper or reprint them on white decal paper and match the background color with the paint that you're using.

    I really have to resist the urge to run out and buy them because of these pictures. This is a HUUUUUUUGE improvement over the retail version, and I only wish I had the dough, or the skill to buy or make one of my own.

    looks great, one question with the decals are the clear ones not available there? i can source clear decal paper if you need.

    This. The non-transparent decals spoil what would otherwise be an utterly incredible custom. The paint work is exemplary. Any chance of replacing them with the clear ones? Or is it a done deal now?
