    Hi,Everyone
    Almost finished ROTF Sideswipe,one more day of painting & airbrushing.
    I am also going to add decals & Symbols when dry.
    It is going to go up for sale as well if anyone is interested,this is a one off and as you can see i have taken geat care on all the details & paint apps.
    The red has now been paint sealed & polished up to give it that car shine look.
    Please PM me if anyone is interested in buying it,will be finished saturday,and i will posting pics of car mode as well.
    Hope you all enjoy:)

    Does he still have his arm weapons??, The only thing that bothers me is the bright gold on the thigh pistons, there's other hints of that color in a few other places, buts it draws my attention a little too much. Maybe grease them up (weathering) or make them a darker brassy color might help. Otherwise great job :)

    This is one of the better red Sideswipe repaints I've seen. Not too much red, nice blend of colors

    yes he still has arm weapon,and the gold is the first base color and it will not be so noticeable when finished.

    The red finish is amazingly smooth. Good job. :) 

    I would suggest adding more red panels to his bot mode parts - on his forearms, chest, and his thighs. It fits in more with the movie aesthetic where parts of the car exterior TF into bot mode parts.
