    More or less, a few decals to apply and maybe a little touching up here and there, but he is finished. Our first ever repaint, with most of the work having been done by my girlfriend (credit where due).
    Thought I'd put this in it's own thread then I can keep my WIP thread seperate.

    Amazing! The mold looks great in the G2 colorscheme. You did an awesome job. I wish Hasbro does a similar repaint one day. :thumb

    Thanks for the kind words, the starkness of the pictures has highlighted a few areas which need a touch up, we still have a flash of red visible underneath the windshield, that should be fun to try and get to(!)

    Nice! Extraordinarily sexy, could give Deepcover Sideswipe a run for his money! Love the green thighs! Yellow marker I presume?...

    looks great, came out looking better than mine did. Leaving the skirting red along the bottom offsets the black a little I found if you wanted to break up the black a bit.

    This mold looks great in black and would've been a nice complement to the G2 styled Inferno they release last year.

    That is very nice, I've always liked the look of G2 Sideswipe. Are you considering any decals? And if you do will you go with G1 or G2 insignia?

    Thanks for the kind words people. I was looking at keeping some red to balance the black a little, but decided on keeping it as accurate to G2 as I could. As for logos, I am undecided, part of me wants to stick a big old G2 bot logo on his hood, but part of me thinks I should display him with my shattered glass figures with a purple autobot logo. What do people think?
