    Tracks is by far my favorite, that Vette looks so nice in that blue love the modern, non 80's flames too.

    While I hate to burst people's bubbles, those flames look to be the stock flames on the Sidearm Sideswipe mold. He just painted Tracks and Swipe in clear paints, so you would still see the flames underneath. The dark red of the original flames with Tracks' clear blue appears black, and the dark red with Swipe's extra red coat appears darker than the rest of the car.


    Regardless, they look sweet. I love the smooth paint on Suntreaker. :)

    Thx for the welcome guys.. and TreadshotA1 is correct... the flames underneath are stock... That was the reasoning behind using the Kandy paint it was to utilize those tribal flames...As well as the reason the red is thicker is cause the red Kandy was hand panted the other 2 were airbrushed... Thx again guys!

    T


    That being said, you could have gone solid base coat, and covered them up, and then painted on the G1 version, But, you chose to keep the originals and it looks amazing in blue. So great job!

    nice use of the Tracks concept. I very much like how glossy they all look. I may go back and redo mine with a different tone of blue, metallic dark blue maybe. But no suggestions for u bro, great job :)
