    How could I do Skids without doing Mudflap?!?
    Anyway, here he is, and in my opinion a very difficult figure to paint. I think I like his face (is that what that is?) and bot mode better than Skids.

    Painted with House of Kolorz "ultimate orange" mixed with copper, transparent red, dorado dreams, clear coated with future!

    Bot mode's got some Testor's model masters; Steel, silver, chrome, gray, metallic red, grabber blue, gloss white, chrome yellow, gunmetal, flat and gloss black, copper, and gold.

    Great stuff! It does indeed look like a highly detailed figure, and I believe you brought the best out of him! The face has a lot to take in, I think I prefer him over Skids!

    I am not usually one to like, nor do I comment on straight up repaints(unless they make for a new character). But this guy needed it and this is a great paint job. the original figure is so blah.

    i like how detailed his face is now looks much better.
    Its funny, Mudflap is the hyperactive brother, but ny the looks @ his face you wouldnt think that lol
    Did you mod the Balljoints on the doors?
    i know some Mudflaps need it like Peaughs as he showed in his video

    WOW!:jawdropper:  That custom paintjob really makes the design look excelent! I must admit I'm more of a fan of Skids in both robot mode design and alt mode (I like street tuner decos), but your amazing skills may have redeemed the other twin for me yet.

    When ever I see one of the twins it gives me an idea for a certain darkhorse character.
