    Or...Gen2 Sideswipe?

    Not the most inspired repaint. I already did a (weak) Clamp Down. Deep Cover is his brother...so what I'd like to do is get a Sunstreaker head and switch it. That way he really is his TF brother (get it? Get it?) and then I can make a Tigertracks.

    ...

    ...

    ...Anyway, I might, no, I have to do a few touch ups, and then there's the matter of no stickers. Okay, so next project will, I promise, NOT be me just painting a figure black.

    Looks good man, Paint is going on to thick, but it looks like you're at least getting everything covered.

    Looks good, but I getting more of an Alternators Dead End vibe off him than Deep Cover, but either way, it's a nice job

    I can kinda see that, actually. But that may be more due to the transformation than anything; DC ought to be transformed in the traditional Sideswipe way, with the bonnet chest and roof back. Cool job either way, though. :) 

    But yeah, definitely more DC than G2 Sideswipe. Sideswipe had red head and red and white innards, as well as bright green vehicle mode detailing.
    DC had dark blue inside bits, which is closer to what we've got here. Plus, y'know, emergency lights, and stuff.

    I turned his head around Sunstreaker style because:

    1 I wanted to make him a little different an use the fan thingy on his back. I don't personally care for how it becomes part of the gun.

    2 since dc is Clamp Down's brother (according to the tfwikia), I'd go the extra silly route and switch his head with sunstreaker's. Because they're brothers..... And I'm probably the only person who makes that connection or thinks it makes sense. It's a stretch...

    The only problem is that this particular Red Alert's head seems glued together!

    Deep Cover doesn't have police lights, does he? I'm thinking with a name like Deep Cover he wouldn't be advertising that he's police with the lights on top. Id say that you have a bit of a ways to go to get him to G2 Sideswipe or Deep Cover. Like Ramrider said DC has dark blue limbs

    Oh, yeah, sorry. It's Clamp Down that has the lights. Silly me.

    Well, he's a police car, I'm taking extreme liberties here by keeping the lights (and twisting his head to face the other way) (and possibly replacing his head with that of Sunstreaker's). He's definitely got some police insignia stickers on his doors in the drawing and eHobby.

    I'll make an attempt to paint the red parts blue another time; I agree, he looks too much like G2 Sideswipe or one of the Stunticons.

    Now that you mention it if you swapped the heads like you said you're going to do he'd look a lot like Alternators Deadend

    I went back and painted the exposed red parts (the parts that don't move so much or won't have the paint scraped off them when they do) blue to change the Dead End vibe.

    But, as stated before in my "I'm taking extreme liberties" statement earlier, I turned his head around, put the spoiler on the back, keepin' the lights, and switched hands. So he's now got a Sideswipe head in a Sunstreaker body. Okay?

    Okay.

    Not sure how I feel about the blue arms, maybe should have left them white and painted the shoulders blue...but it's done. Over. Thanks.
