    Hey guys, I've been around for a while now, looking at different customs which really got me inspired into making one of my own. I'm still a rookie and still have much more to learn, and this custom doesn't seem to be good at all imo.
    C&C's welcome.
    Btw, what is a good way to make the four stripes?

    Hi brother, i think you need use airbrush to spray overall, after that, need to use hand brush to touch-up some detail.

    The only part of Sideways' chest that is black is the hood, the sections beside where headlights pull out should also be silver :)

    Welcome to Radicons!

    If you haven't already, I recommend checking out this painting guide by Jin Saotome--

    Basic Guide to Painting Transformers Figures

    It's a great guide.

    Also, I recommend using blue painter's tape to cover up parts that you don't want paint on, like tires and windows. Time spent in preparation is time well spent, I think. :)

    I checked it already :)  I was to impatient with the multiple layers thing... I tested in on my trash swindle and it worked! so I'll do that from now on when customing
