    Hey guys, been a while since I had anything new to post!
    Road Rage here is just one of the smaller projects I've been working on in between Prowl and other things.

    Anyway, pretty much a straight repaint of Tracks. I've added a styrene faceplate, and modded the shoulders so they do not slide out at all. Figured it would help to attempt to give the mold a slightly more feminine appearance. I also purposefully left the hood bare, just because Tracks has the flames doesn't mean his repaints have to too.

    All the red parts were first painted in MM Silver, and then MM Stop Light Red enamel over top. Blue parts are a custom metallic blue mix. I painted a few of the grey parts semi-gloss black as well.

    This will make the "SG Tracks" pale in comparison.

    beautiful work. i could easily see an optimus prime out of this if more blue was used on the lower robot legs.
