    I am attempting to make Skids over in homage to his G1 self,
    hopefully in a week I can finish him, I have to repaint a few parts
    because I had trouble with the final paint coats not curing right,
    so I have to wait another day or so to repaint those parts, but
    other than that I have the main body together and standing.......

    in alt mode, the Beat will be more detailed with the tail lights while
    not looking like the actual cars, but will slightly resemble them, and
    with Skids G1 red & white stripes down the side (hopefully). and have
    more production style paint on the rims....

    as soon as I get some more black paint, while waiting on him,
    I am moving on to Voyager Megatron.

    Had the same idea. Looks good so far. Nice job!

    I say replace the head with anything else.

    Yeah, if I had an extra head, believe me I would have.
    but I tried to detail duh head as best as I could
    based on the movie detailing, albeit different colors.


    Any ideas on who Mudflap could be in G1?.

    I actually debated on making Mudflap the G1 Skids because
    of the similarities of the upper bodies (G1 Skids & Mudflap that is),
    but since I didn't I am open to suggestions on who Mudflap could
    potentially be.

    the color is actually a Car Color from Dupilicolor, bought a while back, the actual
    color name is long gone, I think it was a Ford blue.

    I will get him finished in the next week hopefully, and get the pics up.

    as soon as I go get paint, I'm going to start on my Voyager Megs, so I
    will kill 2 birds while I wait on finishing Skids.
