    DOTM Sideswipe [Silver Repaint]

    ... got disgusted of the original shit brown color, so I decided to paint him up silver, like he's supposed to be.

    Thanx... the toy is actually pretty nice?... but the colors were rather crap originally. hoping they release a nice repaint, but I have my doubts...

    thanx man. I've always liked Sideswipe, and I just thought it was a waste his toy was so poorly colored...
    amusingly enough, this was the color scheme for him on the Japanese data card...

    they sorta have a hinge joint [two hinges, actually], which allow them to be folded down, so I just fold them there, instead of extending them outwards...

    i'd say... I was hoping they'd do a chrome/silver version like the premium series they did once upon a time for the original movie?...
    then I figured there was no point getting my hopes up, so I just did it myself. XD

    hell yeah. XD
    Occasionally feel tempted to do a G1 color Sideswipe and Sunstreaker using this mold... but I wanna make it so they turn into the same car, but have slightly different alt modes...
    /twitch...
    gives me a headache, it does...

    whoa, you markered it all the way eh? XD
    I tried that once, but i didn't like the finish I got... looked more like a weathered/battle damaged Sides...
    I used sprays for this... Mr Surfacer 1200 B-515 for a base coat, Tamiya Color Mica Silver TS-76 as the silver, then a Mr Super Clear B-513. The gray bits were gundam markered gray with a pilot silver marker for highlights. XD
    Mebbe your local hobby shop has em too? ;)

    cool. ;) 
    The Shadowblade Sides... I dunno... I always thought his blades were a bit too short and stumpy for him somehow?... mebbe you can scratch build/scrounge up some stuff to lengthen em and make em look better? ;)
