    Couldn't stand the crappy gray plastic. So I decided to fix that. :)

    ...second??



    Seriously though, I think it goes without saying that you did an overall great job with this, and that all of us owe you a cookie for making this incarnation of Sideswipe into a swift one. I especially liked how you managed to keep the bot consistant without sacrificing either mode's look, be it the smooth alt mode or the warn robot form.

    wow Dave! Looking good!! Vette mode is slick and clean and bot mode is just right with the wear and tear.

    Simple but still effective. Digging it a lot, especially the car mode. Looks like what it should have been if Hasbro had done the silver

    Wow! :eek:  Sideswipe looks super cool like he's always supposed to be. Love the chrome bits. It beats better than being that horrible grey plastic.

    I've wanted to do something like this myself but have never customized anything. Can you give any tips, like type of paint and brush, etc? Thanks! Great work!
