    Finally had time for this goofball. I dunno but the Skids and Mudflap are both a pain to work with. Comments and criticisms are most welcome.

    This is very nice! How do you keep the pattern on the side of the car while applying your paint? Are the patterns custom painted too?

    Heya Mr Ray, ok. Here goes,

    1. Finish all necessary paint steps.
    2. Get a reference picture for Skids and tape the black graffiti accordingly on the car. Best to do it part by part. I divided the graffiti into 4 sections and taped it once at a time.
    3. After 1 section has been taped, use a thin marker to scribble. That's rite. Scribble across the tape till your happy with the graffiti.
    4. Remove tape and repeat step 2.

    Hope that helps!

    I believe it's limegreen? Green mixed with yellow. Pretty much some trial and error?

    Hate drag up an old thread, but this one is worth refreshing, if not just for the paint app secret by the ever-lovely Sabrina!

    That color looks good enough to eat - amazing job Sabrina and you mixed it to that color....

    By the way, did you see my Skids chest fix - it could get rid of that FAB chest you've got going on there...*

    When I first heard that Mr. Bay was doing the movies, I about peed. Then I saw them. Probably around the same time I saw the toys, sadly, the first toy I saw was Prime. I thought YAY, Mr. Bay has been redeemed, boy was I wrong. I thought Beast Wars sucked... Well, anyway, TFTM and ROTF figures seem so cheap too. They are resting on the movies' success, except Prime from the first one and Night Watch Prime. Trying to make a long story short here, it's tough! You took the 'cheap' out of Skids is what I am saying. He's purdy! Thank you for a beautiful job!

    Do you see what I did there? Radicons isn't your place to rant about Michael Bay or anything else. The last part of your post contributes to this thread somewhat. Please takes notes here on how to post in the future. Thanks :)

    It´s a amazing paint job as usual. My sincere congratulations.

    I don´t like his "goofy" head, but that´s from the design.
