10/3 - He's up on eBay. Not 100% pleased with the result but it's pretty darn good. I just wish the back windshield area where I tried to clean off the blue and adding the magnet was cleaner. Aside from that, he's good. ----------------------------- Updated with some closer to final pics. Finished the legs, painted the head and the wings, added some highlights on the wings and arms. Just need to add some gold details on the springs and what not and tint the back window. Also, gotta find a missile rack on eBay. Only been 2 in the past few weeks. =( I painted the wings flat white, dusted a little flat black for some dirt and details (this is the hood, you know. engine dust/junk - no way it could stay clean.) Added the yellow, green and red stripes to mimic the colors on the G1 sticker and stripe. Added the red on the arms to add a little more color to the bot mode. Felt he needed a little. So... final details, the missile add-on and nice photoshoot and he should be done. =) ----------------------------- With the name of "TRAX" showing up in that call sheet and the centennial corvette being a confirmed car, we all assumed he was going to be "Tracks". Well, since we got Sideswipe instead, it was very obvious a blue repaint needed to happen. To be honest, this is my first direct-to-ebay project. =( I need a little extra money to pay bills and was hoping this could help, even just a little. I plan on pulling out all the stops I can but, unfortunately, this has taken a lot longer than I wanted. After a few weeks, I've done so far... * primed/based coated with Krylon Camo Black * windows attempted to be cleared. Worked OK on windshield... rear window not so much. I might end up giving him a tinted window instead to cover that up. * air brushed with acryl Blue Pearl * touched up the logos and grill with Silver as well as under the headlights. coated those pink looking tail lights with Clear Red * water slide decal of G1 flame (scanned from Binaltech sticker and traced by hand in Illustrator) Due up... * paint/dry brush bot mode and head (white & red) * attempt to add magnet under trunk area to mount G1 missile rack Let me know your thoughts about it and what you think about adding anything else (like wings). I don't think he needs 'em but I'd like to hear people's opinions.
