    Having managed to get Sunstreaker in good shape, I thought I'd make a start on his twin.

    Here is the plan:

    Input:
    Combiner Wars Streetwise

    Mods:
    Printed head
    Printed chest plate
    Printed rifle (same as Sunstreaker)
    Printed shoulder cannon
    Repaint
    Krylon black
    Krylon cherry red
    Tamiya chrome silver
    Tamiya orange
    Tamiya yellow (maybe)
    Testers cobalt blue

    Big update.
    Sideswipe is almost done. Still some touch ups needed but the main paintwork is completed.
    Shoulder cannon is on.
    Rifle is assembled and painted.
    Really happy with how this has worked out.
    Only issue I'd say is the spray paint. I used the Krylon brand this time and it didn't create as smooth of a finish as I'd like. Still looks good but I think it's a learning point for me. Next time (or if) I do a big repaint like this, I'll probably prime with standard grey and then paint using brushes. I prefer the control you have over the finish that way.
