    Well, here's my first almost-finished custom, Classics Dead End. Starting from a Universe 2.0 Sunstreaker, as many others have done, I decided I wanted to go a slightly different route than the other Dead Ends I had seen and based my version of the Binaltech/Alternator figure rather than the red G1 deco. Hoping to finish this up over the weekend... just a few more paint touch ups and reassembly to go, but in the meantime, here's a quick WIP preview. Any advice or comments are more than welcome. :) 

    The racing stripes on the hood and roof were a lot of fun. I used some trim tape to mask off the racing stripes to get that nice, straight edge. The edges on the stripes on the hood are a little rough on account of letting the paint dry before pulling up the tape, but I learned from that little mess up and didn't repeat the mistake on the roof.
