    I have been working on some customs that I am using kandy red on, and decided to get spend a little "me" time late to paint my own Sideswipe. PPG Auto motive urethanes heavy metallic base and kandy red...


    This is going into my collection.. I am fixing up all the G1 bots to keep and minimizing the rest of my collection....

    I still gotta get the hands and finish up some details....

    Thanks for checking it out....

    DAMn dude! :jawdropper: 

    THAT is one very Cherry paint job there! I myself used to work with these kinds of paints years ago at one of my first jobs & know first hand how much of a pain they can be to work with. Incidentally, I used to have a 1970 Monte Carlo SS that was this exact same Candy Red metallic so its just one more reason to love your color choice for Swipes here!
    Great job!! :thumb

    Gotta agree about the colors on this guy. I'm really digging them. It would be awesome if Hasbro/Takara would go this route as a collectors line. I'd buy them for $20 each if they came like this. I mean if Takara did this I'd probably hold off because they'd be more like 40-50 each

    Awesome man!! Thanks...it is always good to hear from someone who understand urethanes. Yeah, I wanted my sideswipe to bling!

    Haha....
    Like a stun gun..
    Thanks man...I am wanting to get back to my roots with all these new G1 bots coming out and paint me some sweet car modes...not to mention some other big customs ;) 
    Have you seen the Takara animated line...man oh man...beautiful stuff...

    now to just find a cliff jumper....

    Thanks dude...

    Thanks guys.. I will get car mode up soon, gotta finish commissions before I can get back on this guy.
    And Koof. I am going to lay off the LEDs on mine, except for Wheeljack...gotta light up those chops. I just want nice paint jobs and minor mods...
    young Jedi....I will show you the way....let's trade..your styrene skills for my paint skills...all though I think you would be getting the short end of the stick on that one...

    Looking real nice man. I never really liked that kind of paint look (metallic) for small tfs, I always felt that the toys were way too small for the speckles if you know what I mean but this looks really nice anyway. Are you done with this or are you going to do more apps on him??

    I'm looking forward to seeing another Devy from you man, got plans for one??

    dont mind my dumb question, but what is this 'PPG Auto motive urethanes heavy metallic base and kandy red'.

    is it paint that im guessing is used on cars? and must it be mixed with another agent?
    it sure looks very vibrant!
