    Okay, weak-ass disclaimer first. I'm not a particularly arty guy, I can't draw two stick men and I've never been very good at modelling. That being said, I have a skilled girlfriend who is much more patient than me, I can take things apart and spray them, but she does all the fine detail work.
    Basically I thought I'd through these up for suggestions and so we have a chronicle of the wip.

    Classics G2 Sideswipe / Shattered Glass Sideswipe

    This guy is gonna double up as both for me as I really hate Shattered Glass Sideswipe, I think he'll be sporting a G2 logo rather than a purple Autobot logo when all is said and done. No mods to speak off, just repainted in the style of G2 Sideswipe. He is almost finished.

    Animated Motormaster


    Using the colour scheme as seen in the Animated Almanac as inspiration. Basically I'm a sucker for black / purple Transformers. Whats nice about this is it's made from a K/O Voyager Prime, so he's about 50% bigger than the official Voyager mold, giving him that extra height to make the character more Menasor-ing. Still a bit of work to do on this chap.

    Shattered Glass Prowl in Barricade colour scheme.

    Yeah, a bit boring this one but I thought I'd give it a go anyway. A little bit of modding here to give the guy some damage, exploded missile and damaged head, I'll probably but some scoring on the hood and maybe a cracked windshield.
    He still needs lots of work, base coats are finally finished - the doors took about 4 coats - but that's about it. This guy is gonna need lots of decals.

    Looks promising! Paint job looks pretty smooth.

    Where did you get the knock off prime from?

    WH Smiths at a service station somewhere, apparently it's okay to sell nasty quality knock-offs if you're a big chain?!?! They also have an over-size Animated Starscream.
    We've had a few issues with cracking on the paint, we're not sure if that's caused by changes in temperature as they are sprayed in our little greenhouse / porch bit and then brought inside? No-one else can seem to explain it, any ideas? Nothing a little sanding and touching up hasn't fixed.

    moisture may cause he paint to crack if you are in a humid area when using the paint.

    Looking good sir. I'm liking the idea of using a oversized KO Prime. Have you thought about a trailer for him?

    Trailer would be nice, I'm not sure how well he will transform though as the K/O wasn't of the best quality, but the robot should look kick-ass.
    Thanks for the advice about the cracking.
