    Like many of you on this site I wanted to do a repaint of Sideswipe in red.
    I'm proud of this figure's over all paint job and appearance.
    It paint is as smooth as glass and has a nice metallic flake to it.
    Unfortunately it is an overcast day here in California so I am taking pics outside
    with little to now direct light. The pictures still came out pretty well.
    I need to add extra details to the car mode, then I will begin to paint
    Sideswipe in robot mode.
    Well I hope you enjoy the pictures.

    Nov. 2nd-
    Strange I noticed that the pictures I posted were no longer here.
    I just attached them again.

    Dude, that's freakin slick!! You should tint the windows to make it look like the real deal!! That would be icing on the cake for vehicle mode.

    Those windows are painted transparent blue, the paint comes off pretty easily.
