    I repainted the DOTM Sideswipe in G1 colors. I dry brushed the figure with steele, shades of red, gunmetal, and gloss black for the windows. Then used Krylon Cherry Red for the car mode. I also covered up the mech tech ports.

    Nice work man, I like the G1 color of this one! I think he could use a little panel wash for vette mode though.

    Looks slick in vehicle mode but it looks a bit too red in bot mode. Feels like there should have been more white, silver n black to help break up all that red.

    Beautiful repaint. You went with a red repaint instead of silver like every one else

    Very good. :thumb 

    It's always nice to see the movie 'bots get a G1 color paint treatment.

    Where are the white biceps and thighs? The black forearms and shins? It's just a Red Sideswipe, not G1.

    Oh nice man! I didn't know how cool he'd look in red. Now I want to snag a Swerve for the head and do this

    I did take some of the cues from the movie colors which was all silver and made it red. Maybe, if I make another one, I'll do it like that. Or you can do it.

    Should look awesome.

    I'm just stating the obvious, no need to get all upset over it. After all, a red sideswipe does not a G1 make, Revenge of the Fallen Swerve if proof of that.

    Also, learn to take a little constructive criticism now and then. If you open your work for the public to view, you can't expect everyone to sing your praises every time.

    Not upset. If I do, I might add what you suggest. Or this can inspire you to do one the same way other people inspire me.
