    Here's one i finnaly decided to put up. It's Classic version of Wildrider from the Sunticons. I had fun doing him and will eventually get around to doing the rest, and a newer version of this guy in the future, maybe more greyish than black.
    The red is much darker in person, and i'm actually planning on ebaying him this week after painting his gun.

    The roof/sheild was inspired by Frenzy Rumble, and i really like the way it differentiates him from Streaker and Sideswipe.

    I added the shield in a way that it can fit on the arm in two different ways and still go on the chest.
    EDIT added pic of his painted weapon

    spray paint and bondo? some wet sanding and polishing, and i think you've got a winner! after that just lay on a nice clear coat. nice work!

    Very nice, man! I think the paint looks good, but the only thing I see that could use a touch up is the roof/shield where you filled in the grooves. Maybe take that and sand it a little more and paint it up again. Other than that, it looks great (Wildrider was always my favorite of Mike's Stunticons due to the colors and roof/shield idea).

    Keep up the great work! (also, great job on your RFTK submission)

    Looks pretty good. I love the shield idea. It gives the figure a bit of a departure from the streaker mold.
