    Ok!!!! I went to Walmart today and got me Derp/Mc Spanner/ (according to SEANxLONG) Mc Mofo!!!! My favorite thing about this mold was his similarity to Skids. However, like Skids, i didn't like the color base. So here we go!!

    I repainted him with an attempt at movie accuracy.

    I also added to this thread the WonderTwins together!!! I'm glad to have both of them here!!!!

    The pic in the before and after pic was from Peaugh's pictorial review of him. The thanks for this again goes to frenzy_rumble for inspiration and also Sabsabby85 for her Mudflap, which also served as inspiration

    UPDATE
    Added pics of my mod on Mudflap, but i also added Necrocom4's mods to him and Peaugh's small mod to Skids

    Thanks, it's thanks to your work and others. By observing each piece of a radicons custom, i've been able to practically pinpoint my flaws, using the information to help while i take my time to add detail

    WOW. That's the first positive comment i've ever gotten from you. Thanks

    I'm liking how you're incorporating orange panels into his bot mode instead of just drybrushing all the robot guts, but the orange you used looks too pale and flat compared to the color of the car.

    Also, I suggest you get a nice light tent setup and a camera so that people can see your customs more clearly. :)  The camera flash (at least, the pics look like they were taken with a flash) makes the pics too bright.

    Thanks for the tips!!!

    Oh yeah, i realized if you trim part of his windshield from when you fold it in robot mode, it can fold up better. i'll post a new pic of this later

    Ok. Here is the way to trim the tab to allow your Mudflap to move his... well... mudflap out of the way of his legs easier.

    Behind his windshield, i noticed that he had two triangular ends on that prevented further folding of his backpack. but by trimming said tabs, i was able to fold it up more.

    I was going to pass on these 2, but after seeing your paint work, I may have to get them now. Good work, they look great!

    Mudflap's feet are backwards. You need to swap them to look like in the movie
