    Here he is, finished (for the time being), Alternator Barricade.

    He's a little rough, though some things look more pronounced in the pics, like the white edges on the stickers are far more subtle in person, and the black on them is more bold. The head, admittedly is kinda ugly. I just popped the visor off, ran the dremmel to make some ridges, carved the eyes in a little, then gave it a silver wash. Maybe one day I will hunt him down a new head.

    That looks awesome man!

    I think a lot of us had the same idea when we first saw that we were gonna get a Decepticon police car for the movie. I'm very surprised it took this long for someone to make one!

    If you want to make it even more Barricadish, something I've noticed is that you should paint over a portion of the taillights with black.

    If you look at the Mustang taillights, you'll notice that each tailight is divided into 3 segments. You should paint over the inner segment of each taillight.

    This pic kind of demonstrates what I'm talking about:

    That turned out really well! The weathered forarms and the head are just a few of the details that really give this piece some nice touches! Great work!

    . . . this makes me want to go and work on my black Mustang I have planned . . . :lol

    You know. looking at yours made me think. Did they leave the number on the front bumper that designates it's a Saleen instead of a Ford on the movie cars, or is it like you bash with no numbers.... hmmm. Look cool.

    Awesome!

    Back when I first saw Barricade's alt mode I was kind of hoping he would look like your bash.

    Thanks for all the compliments, guys. Wait till you see what I do with the real barricade when he comes out :) . Also, added one more pic. I figured out how to dull my flash, and now you can actually make out his nice municipal tag I swiped from the revel impala kit.
