    I absolutely envy your skills. WOW.

    What do you use to paint such small details? Do they make brushes that small?

    One question: How in the hell did you get such perfect pinstripes on him? I tried the same thing, but the masking tape I used kinda sucked.

    Thanks alot guys:thumbs2: 
    Thanks,you would be surprised how small they get but i find it`s how fine the tip is that makes the difference.

    Cheers:thumbs2: 
    My brother-in-law has the non tuned version & it`s a beast:rock 

    They are waterslide decals i got of ebay & even putting them on straight was a nightmare.:banghead:

    Awesome repaint. I wish there was a way to get the alt mode to look more like the R8...

    I was at the nürburgring yesterday (german track) and there were two R8's

    the other one was black but just went on the track...

    Oh I see. Makes sense. Putting the masking tape on straight was a slight hassle as well.

    This is definitely the best Sideways custom I've seen.

    Nice but the roof-stripes don't seem to resemble Sideways' tech-lines at all.
    Still some kickass repainting.

    very cool, I'm working on this one as well today (still tweaking the transformation)
    nice to see all the detail and i like your choice of colors.

    the only thing I would add is a glossy finish on the car parts

    What are you using to seal/coat your work in after painting?
    I've left repaints for a week before putting them back together only for them to chip off while transforming them.

    Cheers guys:thumbs2: 
    Thanks,yeah i took a few liberties with this guy i didnt have much reference material at the time (he`s been done about 3 weeks).
    Some kind of doughnut?:lol 
    I use 2 coats of spray Humbrol Gloss varnish (24hrs apart) followed by a coat of Spray satin varnish (24hrs later) then i leave it a good 2 weeks or so to cure before reassmbly.
