    Your paint work is top notch, as usual, but in my opinion, the trailer honestly looks a bit plain.

    I LOVE the upside down Autobot/Decepticon logo.

    Though I kind of agree with Altitron. Maybe put that logo on the side?

    I like everything about it except for the chest..
    It's just too bright to me and really draws my eye away from all that other fantastic detail you've put into this custom. A slightly more muted color would have worked nicely I think (similar to the slightly more muted looking red where the symbols have been added..



    But wow.. top notch work still! The upside down symbols rule, the sword looks amazing with that same red, and the paint job of full bot mode is great!

    This is my opinion as well. The strength, as Alty mentioned, is your painting work. I think that the trailer wouldn't be as problematic if the cab matched the styling. As is, though, it seems that in alt mode they're two pieces of two different sets as they don't "fit" well. The robot mode is an entirely different story.

    Regardless, your work continues to keep truckin' :)

    The only suggestion I have in regard to that (as I initially felt the same way) would be some kind of changing of the leg colros to give it a better look, maybe more truck like. Perhaps matching the grey used for the back of the trailer.

    I don't have a problem with the paint job on the actual cab of the truck being different than the trailer as I can't really seem to recall any truck in real life that matches it's trailer exactly.

    However if encline wanted to go the extra mile and paint an SDCC nem prime, doing the legs in the same "silverish" color that you can see on the back wheels of the truck would rule.


    As for the trailer being "plain" I can see that too. You could extend the stripe on the cab back , but then you're almost forced to make the trailer match color wise.

    A con logo in the center of the BFG could have been cool (and not exposed when actually functioning as a BFG)
