    Been sittin on these guys for almost 2 months now, my camera was on the fritz. Now that it's back up and running, I decided it was time to try some new lighting and backdrop settings.

    Both were painted using a new technique I'm trying out, going for a matte look on the bot mode parts, with a wet look gloss for alt mode. I have a few more Classics/Generations/etc. figures on the way, but I figured I'd lead off with these 2.

    Sideswipe was painted with HoK Kosmos Red, Sunstreaker with a custom mixed HoK yellow, that I added a little bit of copper flake to for a little extra pop. Both alt modes were then sprayed with Testors Wet-Look clear lacquer. Their bot mode parts were sprayed with HoK Flat Black, then drybrushed with my own metallic mix, and airbrush shaded with various custom mixed HoK colors. Afterwards, they were cleared with Testors Dullcote. Boggs6ft7 supplied the faction logo decals.

    Enjoy!

    I'm a fan of the glossy alt/matte bot look. Pain work is flawless, man.

    As a fellow customizer, I got to say again, these are awesome man. I personally really like classics/universe figures more then any other transformers and you really did awesome work with these and again, the materials you used are of the best and so there is some really top quality customs right here! If I weren't a painter, I'd get these hands down for my collection man. You should be giving yourself a big pat on your back :D
