    Perhaps reshell should do the beauty work.

    Maybe some sharper blade will help too.

    Excellent paint

    Is there any chance you can provide some better pictures? I'm definitely interested in seeing this clearly and more up close.

    God I hope you're being sarcastic. It looks like he dunked the thing in a bucket of red. You can clearly see how even the wheels are smeared with it. It's also scratched to hell, as far as I can see. But you never know-- the photos are pretty poor quality.

    It looks like the arms have been painted silver, but I can't tell. Please take some more photos, and use some lighting for Primus' sake.

    Looks a lot like my first as far as paint goes. You'll get better in time.

    ... I don't know... it looks like Sideswipe to me still, even with the swapping of parts around?...
    I recently tried doing my own version of Dino for the TF Prime universe using Beast Hunters Smokescreen, and I think if you're willing to do some detailing, or add in some parts to make it look more Bayformer, it might work a little better?... Just an idea to get ya started.
    Some of the others have also done some impressive work by either repainting or reshelling ROTF Sideways too, and adding on lego bionicle blades...
    Here are some examples...

    Still, good effort, and we all start somewhere... :)  Welcome to the Radicons, and we hope you have fun. :)
