    Took my DOTM Sideswipe and gave him the treatment he deserves. Painted him using Testors Silver and metallic silver with black. Critics and comments welcome.

    I've said probably once, I've probably said it a hundred times to other people whenever they do an awsome Sideswipe custom!

    "Damn you're good!"

    was this hand painted? must have taken forever (if you did).

    Have you considered using spray paints? air-brushes?
    It can get a more consistently smooth paint finish. It would take some practice time and experience, but i tell you , the effects are awesome.

    you can also highlight the details by applying a black sharpee on the detailed panels on the chest,crotch, abs, and legs. Add some minimum hints of other colors like bronze, reds, and blacks on some very minute detailings so you silver will definitely pop also.

    Good effort! salute you on this effort.
