    OK, obvious repaint of Universe Classics Sideswipe into Red Alert.

    Initially, I tried to make a Red Alert out of a spare Sunstreaker I had. Unfortunately, it ended up as a complete and utter failure. :( 

    I cut Sunstraker's horns and tried to put them in with superglue only to misalign them. Not only that but the red marker I used to further highlight the red paint completely smudged over the white paint resulting in a "Pink Alert". Ultimately I was forced to scrap it. :cry 

    So, I just got myself a spare Sideswipe instead and painted it into Red Alert with Model Masters acrylics: so many times easier since the red is all already there. And of course, I also got the gun of the failed Sunstreaker-Red Alert and gave it to this one. Oh, and the siren I ordered off of ebay: it's officially for die cast cars. Add some reprolabels and boom, Red Alert.

    So here's Red for all your viewing pleasure. Unfortunately Inferno doesn't come out officially for another few weeks so I pictured him with the twins instead.

    Wow this is your best custom yet in my opinion. Gotta stick to model masters and molds that have similar colors for the best results. Great work, way to step it up man:thumb  The head isn't as solid red as I'd like it but it works

    might I suggest painting the blue thigh pieces so his thighs aren't the same as the twins (of which he is no relation?) Other than that he looks really sharp!

    I agree 100%. I think if you do this, you'll be glad you made a really sharp piece that much better :thumb

    Paint the thighs? I hadn't even thought of it. :sly:  Painting them red probably may be a good idea. Hmmm....

    Thanks for checking him out fellas.

    The gun isn't modified, the supercharger pegs in there just fine by itself.
