    Excelent work for a first attempt, really nice and clean, and the alt-mode is specially good looking! It also surprises me how well the classics Bluestreak head fits that mold.

    Not bad. Very clean. And the head does look nice on it too.

    Awesome work but I noticed a little bleeding on the rally stripe on driver side on the engine hood. I use hobby masking tape for the finest edges when I paint stripes or border colors. I would've used hobby masking tape to create the line and then masked off the rest of the car with blue painter's tape and body paper (auto store). Just a tip for your next project :)
