    So this is my 2nd version of http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/336421-gobots-turbo.html. This time I used a Generations Red Alert figure. I removed the light bar and filled in the holes. I then trimmed the head down a bit and painted the figure using silvers and reds. This time I painted the figure to look more like the animated version, especially the head. I decided to leave the windows clear. This was my entry for the Sector 70 Challenge of the Gobots contest.

    Looks pretty good. I really like what you did with the face. Turbo was always my favorite. I feel like he still needs something to make him pop though... maybe the green windows

    True but if you look at the toy, he had blue windows. This is kind of both versions combined. :)

    I just can't see past the Sideswipe. I mean, I know what this is supposed to be. I see the head. But when I look at everything but the head I just see ol' Sideswipe. but then, as long as it works for you that's all that matters.

    Head needs to be red and a visor must be created. It will definitely pop then.

    Great paint job and awesome looking figure. Sorry to say i'm not feeling a 'Turbo' vibe at all though... (might just be my over-familiarity with the Lambo mold) :eek:

    Looks great.
    Could definitely benefit from an added visor, and perhaps a clear coat of blue on the windows.
    Not that I'm complaining.

    Nice job man! Love the head design you did, and the paint application is so smooth bro'. Not sure I woulda used this mold for the character though. I'm working on one from the Drift mold right now and it's really nice looking. I think I'm gonna use the RA head though now that I've seen yours:)

    Yeah, I already did that last year. Thought I would do a different version.

    Not bad. If you were to go with an even more toy accurate look, I'd recommend the head from deluxe Cybertron Red Alert. It has a look and shape similar to that of the old toy.

    I only see a HUGE tank and an SUV named "Red Alert". Do you mean Hot Shot? If so, the car mode looks alright but the bot mode doesn't look right at all.

    Alright, very cool, missed that one. Don't know what you plan to do with them, but I'd do a quick head swap moving the RA head to the Drift body, then paint the windows in a clear blue tint and you got a VERY nice Turbo of the Drift mold, very accurate, and pretty much exactly what I'm going with. Hope mine turns out as good as yours. Top notch work on both my man!

    No, I don't mean Hot Shot. I'm talking about the head from the Cybertron deluxe Red Alert. I have one. It's a decent size.
