    I made Red Alert from The Sideswipe mold. I modded the head just a little to give him a different look than Sideswipe. His rocket launcher was made from a Prowl missle and the Launcher from 74' Movie Bumblebee. He was fun to do and he's just been listed on eBay

    Great job! Should sell pretty well being that the takara version is very hard to find. I like the 'ear' mod you did, was it just a matter of shaving them down or did you add putty?

    The only thing I would have done differently is white shoulders and replace the black on the gun and missile launchers with white.

    Are the stickers holding well, they seem to be lifting off on the hood. How did you make them?

    I simply shaved the ears down a little. I thought about using whit on the gun and launcher but decided to stay with the black. I liked it better. The stickers are holding pretty well. I used some labels I got from work and then made the design on my computer. Unfortunatly I no longer have the file since I had to wipe my computer when it took a dump on me. I lost everything

    I don't know if I'd go that far, though it is a pretty good repaint. The slight mod to the head is nice, a little more G1 in a way.

    What really bugs me, however, is the light bar. Red Alert's marked as a Fire Chief's car, not a cop car, he likely wouldn't have blue lights.
