    I'm not too keen on the big faction symbol labels. Also, painting the yellow stripes on Sunstreaker's head would help set the custom apart from Sunstreaker. Aside from those things, this project looks cool :thumb 

    (personally, I leave off the vent intakes off of my Tigertrack just so it makes him and Sunstreaker look different in alt mode)

    see now i was in two minds about the stripes on sunstreakers head however was the original diaclone toys head not yellow?

    and the labels are easy enough to whip off or leave either way! im looking to offload these guys cos need some cash and space!

    but the grapple is going good just done some apoxie work on the crane today so once its set and sanded hes gonna be painted!

    and lotussouljah check out my stepper i put up in the forum its a page or two back :)

    Nice work, just got done with some Diaclone versions myself. I like the idea of blacking out the nameplate, but I may try to make stickers (not sure yet). Gave me some good ideas for some mods to them. I know the diaclone Sunstreaker had the yellow highlights on his head, but I was thinking of coloring them red. I don't know why the yellow has always bothered me, any thoughts?

    well i was going for a sorta updated toy accuracy rather than just matching the colours to the body but hey there your customs do as you feel if your keeping them!
