    Guys here is Skids..

    I used several of the changes that folks here on the boards posted..

    Closetrat - Chest Fix
    Roam - Rear wheel mod

    Painted with Scorpion Green which I thought was right on the money. I also added some hoses to match the CGI art which had some red hoses under the arms...

    I also added a couple of small Cybertronian tattoos on the ears...

    I also added Mudflap kneepads and some Mudflap customized feet...

    Here is Skids...

    Awesome work with the mods and the little details like the hoses. :thumb 

    Not digging the new green paintjob, though. It looks flat and the paintwork could use a little smoothing out. It might be just me, but I don't see the point of repainting the whole body when it will look almost the same as the original unpainted plastic.

    You're right about the Scorpion Green from Games Workshop. I used it on my Skids repaint and found it to be a perfect match color-wise. The problem, like mampy mentioned, is that it is totally flat. I mixed it with some Future floor finish and brushed it on carefully and ended up with a nice, smooth paint app. You should consider adding a gloss coat of some kind to the green car parts once you've added the decals.

    Looking good longhorn, the decals are in the post. Cant wait to see what you think of them in person. I see a lot of the mods i did to my skids there. The clearance is close with the shin pads isnt it :)  I also liked your mudflap feet and mudflap crotch and thighs, good to see another skids, ours could be twins of there own when you put the decals on...lol

    Glad to see my mod helped you out on this - was wondering what it would look like painted...

    Lovin the RoAM mods on this one too - the crotch/thigh/foot fixes REALLY make the mode look MUCH better.

    Will keep watching for more of your work!
