    Heya Guys,

    Just to share Henkei Sideswipe. My main trouble with this character was that I initially tried to incorporate the white shades on his arms and legs but it just fared badly against the rest of his scheme. I also modded his hands with a pair of gundam fists.

    Looks great, as always, but I think the face is a little too dark, it blends with the rest of his dark parts.

    But again, excellent job!

    Ooh..Sorry. Lighting issues. The face is painted with chrome silver. The Rest of the head is from a very diluted shade of black on super silver. It slightly different in real life. And thanks for the comments! :)

    Little to deep of red for my tastes but it is flawless none the less. Took your advice on the paints BTW and am getting both sideswipe and sunstreaker ready for something similar. Keep up the great work.:thumbs2:

    Well the second ones at least. Others I will have to import and will take a while as I think cause of the composition they cannot go in the air and have to go the slow shipping method. :banghead:  Oh well but yeah I still need to do some more prepping but I am hoping to start up my air bush on them tomorrow sometime.

    Wow. I like the finish on your Sideswipe. Any chance you can tell us how? EDIT: Clear Mr hobby over Tamiya Silver. Understood. ;) 

    I'm sure i've seen that gun somewhere before...

    I've also had some limited luck with clear over alclad or spaz. But the effect doesn't seem to be very encouraging as there seems to be some reaction on the silver side. Very odd..

    Oh..Hmmm..the gun's just some random gun I got frommy big box of gundam parts. Hahaa..It's becoming to be very very useful!

    Not only that, the plate at the back has the words Lambor as opposed to just sideswipe. Lambor sounds way cooler in my opinion! hehhe!

    With that repaint, I wouldn't mind calling him Hentai Sideswipe!

    Lame/disgusting, I know...

    Do i want to understand what Hentai means exactly...? :p 

    I think i'll stick with Mr hobby over Tamiya. I'm more used to their paints. I've found it very useful for Gundam beam swords as well. Thx.

    heh..Actually, I'm starting to regret that I had to list him up. He looks really really darn gorgeous in person. Even nicer than the pictures. Just trying hard to resist getting the henkei line as I'm a completist.

    Four people now! Hot damn that thing is sexy! Both car mode and robot look super clean! The gun and hands are a nice touch. Saw your Cyclonus, do you have any other Universe lined up for your make over?
