    That looks really nice, very reminiscent. I know some of that is paint, is the rest of it stickers that you cut out pieces? Anyway, great job.

    That's a nice twist there, turning him into, what, a paramedic vehicle?
    Heh, before I clicked on the thread, the thumbnail made me think he was an MIC (Made In Canada) figure! :lol 

    Nice execution too. Looking at the cross on the chest, it looks like you've used some kind of cut out strips or something. Is that right?
    I am wondering why you've left the intakes on, but I guess it's not a full-on G1-isation anyway, so it's not really saying much either way.

    Anyway. He looks gorgeous. :D

    Sweet! Color reversal--almost a G2-Classic (if a G2 Red Alert existed). :D 

    Definitely came out nicely. Loving the lightbar! (Barricade's, correct?)

    Looks great, and very creative. Barricade's light bar looks good on there; I've done the same thing but with Prowl. My one critique is that the light bar is red/blue and not red/red.

    I'm a big red alert fan. I'd prefer more white though. He still looks like a sideswipe with a slight variation

    Not bad. I personally would have gone with more white than red in the overall deco. Basically a more straight up G1 homage (yeah, odd for me, lol). Though overall not bad. The light bar looks really good on this mold. Seeing this makes me want to do that RID Prowl homage with this mold I was thinking of doing a while back.

    That thing looks freakin' sweet man. I wanna do that with a little red paint for the head though. Did you just make stickers for it?

    Nice. Very straightforward - I could almost see Delta making a sticker set to achieve this effect.

    Wow. This looks great! The extra red works really well and actually makes sense, I mean his name is Red Alert. ;) 

    I do agree that you might want to try to change the light bar to red-red as red-blue is usually reserved for law enforcement. But otherwise the light bar looks great here. Fantastic job!

    qft, too red. Nice work, just too red to be Red Alert (As ironic as that is).
    I'd also repaint the head for cartoon homage.

    I wouldn't be surpised if it was just transparent paint. Alcohol ought to remove the blue and red, then you could either paint some transparent red over or simply go over it with a Sharpie.

    I have to admit this is that half bad its your take of Red Alert and you know what this kicks ass. And how you made your own stickers then dude thats awesome. So keep it up and hope to see more customs from ya very soon.

    G1 cartoon, yes, G1 toy, no.
    And I think the fact that he's now a medical vehicle and not a fire rescue one is a pretty good clue that G1 accuracy isn't the priority in this case anyway.
