    Hello all,
    This is my first transformers custom (outside of ball jointed heads and weapons swapping). I had a rough time for a couple years and decided to build gundams, which was a great creative outlet for me. Then I moved onto watching gundam and transformer reviews, warhammer painting videos, and kept browsing the tfw2005 radicons. After feeling comfortable after breaking enough gundams hahahaha i was truly inspired and decided i was not afraid of doing customs any longer and here is what i made:
    I always loved the transformers armada wheeljack and really wanted to transform him into sideswipe. But, years past, and generations and now masterpiece sideswipe blow armada wheeljack out of the water in my opinion..so i decided to stick with the idea of red...but deeper and felt that dead end would make a great addition to my shelf :)  He was painted with tamiya and krylon paints. that sheen comes from a satin enamel coat. I know my paints skills can use work and any comments, criticism, and advice would be appreciated. the prime: dead end swords were just for fun but I liked that they slid into the slots on his back. I had a ton of fun doing this and customs are a great brain relaxation tool! :D  I apologize for my backdrop, poor cameraman work, and not rotating pictures...but just like doing customs I promise to work on it and figure it out to get better! Enjoy :)

    Thanks to all! I tried really hard. I could not decide if I wanted a copper stripe down the top of the car as well..it seemed better without. It was fun, flaws and all :)
