    This started out as idea in my comic, so I took the extra step one day...and came up with this...

    Based off of a ROTF Deluxe Swerve, obviously, I had added orange and yellow flames to the hood. Also, added some flames in the chest section of bot mode, to give him a lil classic look, as well as painting a couple raised spots on his head yellow, like the classics figure. The spoiler was made out of a plastic bin, cut to shape and painted to match yellow of flames. From there, glued above the rear window to be part of that section that holds in the back for the Vette mode. Unfortunately, the spoiler prevents the hood sections from folding up correctly, so they maintain at his sides.

    Although I was skeptical when I saw the topic-icon, I must say I was pleasantly surprised. This turned out real nice. Good job.

    Pretty cool! Always nice to see a fellow Ohioan around here. I probably already asked you this, but are you anywhere near Cleveland? (lucky you if you're not)

    Yes you have, and yes I am near cleveland :thumb 

    In my opinion, this head suits him better. I compared Hot Rod to my G1 Sideswipe repaint, and I think the Swerve head looks better this way.

    Thanks for all the comments. I have been tossing around the idea of if it would look better with a Autobot symbol on the middle or not, just don't have one laying around to check it out.

    Looks great. If I could change one thing, it would be to go with decals instead of the paint apps. Great idea, smooth execution!

    Hahahahaha! That's a good one. Only problem not having the same head.

    Still, I am sure you give me a lil bit, I can come up with an idea figure for that!

    what's wrong with Cleveland, we'll have a casino soon, and we already have our own serial killer :p 

    this guy looks great, the hand painted flames are impressive, I have done them before and they are very difficult to pull of . I had to fix my classics Rodimus Prime a billion times. I am decals from now on

    Pretty cool. At first I thought the spoiler looked out of place but I looked at it some more and I couldn't imagine it without. Great job!

    I have a few things around here:

    Power Up Prime

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/267698-rotf-powered-up-leader-optimus.html

    ROTF G1 Sideswipe and Sunstreaker and Sideways

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radic...-sideswipe-sideways-sunstreaker-repaints.html

    I have a few customs I made, one being my character and his brother Spoiler and Drifttrail, but didn't make a thread on em, but they constantly appear in my comic. Also, I made a few customs that don't really transform, just bot modes essencially that I use a second model kit/vehicle for the alt.
