    I decided after seeing the TFCC Sideburn I wanted to do versions of all the RiD characters. Then I never got Sideburn :(  I'm sure I'll find one eventually, or just paint my own.

    Anyways, fast forward I see that Animated Skybyte was to be a remold of Lugnut. I took that idea along with Derrick J Wyatt's drawing of Skybte's head and made this. An amalgam of all those ideas. I sacrificed my only Lugnut for this, but luckily I have another on the way. (Still need another for a different project)

    I wrote this for him

    Lugnut is no more,
    With the head of Slugslinger,
    Shark is a Blue Plane

    Color me impressed! This is a perfect reinterpretation of how he looks at the end of The Stunti-Con Job. The paint work is beautiful on this thing, by the way. Loving all the little decals, too.

    Not sure if that goofball Sky-Byte knows what to do with his new found POKE'ing ability. I would say his allies should be very afraid. >_>

    Good paint job.

    I never would've thought of this, and yet it makes so much sense! Impressive work.

    Some beautiful work T.

    Love it all, as I said earlier, only thing I would have liked to have seen you do differently, would been to have used a water-slide Con decal instead of a sticker there on the tail fin....

    but that's just a minor nit pick....very minor.
