    I remove ironhide's connecting piece to the head and attached a gundam ball joint.
    The white piece is from of a 1/100(?) Stirke freedom arm.(you know the circle that connects that balljoint in the pics)

    Your paint application seems to be a bit thick, like on the car bodies. What kind are you using?

    It doesn't seem to be thick like that on Sideways' arms and interior of the car panels--Those parts look good.

    Also for brushing on paint, try to stick to brushing in one direction.

    But nice job with Hide's balljointed head.

    well let's just say ironhide's head went through he**

    and to algernon: the paint on ironhide's body is nicely applied(w/ krylon flat black)
    and the only main problem w/ sideways is the back of the car..i need to strip that paint

    The silver looks a mess, dude. Sorry for being blunt, but it does. What kind of paint are you using? If it's that cheap Folk Art or Apple Barrel crap from Wal-Mart. Do yourself a favor a throw it out! Go pick up some Tamiya or Testors acrylics. These are the paints designed to do what your wanting to do. I tried to used those other paints on a custom, and when I sprayed them with that same Krylon clear, they reactivated and turned to shit!
    Now, it you're using the Testors or Tamiya, and getting these results, you need to go slow, using thinner coats. Here's some required reading, in my opinion, for anyone wanting to start customizing.
