So I just bought Universe Sideswipe, and intends to repaint him into Stunticon Breakdown. And since I'm new to these kind of stuffs.. I wanna ask a few questions to fellow Radicons here.. #1 What's the best method to remove his black stripe on sides? Or just leave them and paint 'em eventually? #2 What's the best method to start painting this figure? Separate all limbs, or simply paint it on alt-mode first? Because I'm afraid I might break some stuffs if I have to separate his body into pieces. -_-; Maybe few questions will follow up later once I get to work on it. Still kinda busy & hectic with job lately. Thanks in advance. Regards, Caine.
