    RotF Sunstreaker and Sideswipe*update alt. Mode in*

    Well I am a little surprised I didn't see too many of this set get done. But I figured I would tackle it, and kick the living sh#@ outta it. Beings these two are brothers of a sorts, they share the same mold. I just resculpted the Sunstreaker head a little, just like he had a different head in G1. Also went with a different paint idea, instead of the "regular" paint. Don't know if you can tell or not with the pics. They were first painted with Chrome silver and dry brushed with Pewter, and then a light airbrush of Alclad II chrome. The Sideswipe was painted clear red for that "Candy apple" look. Sunstreaker was done the same way, then painted with clear sunshine. He came out a little darker than I thought, but I still like it. Then they both got some black, gun metal, chrome silver, silver, gold, bronze, and copper. The inner parts were then airbrushed with clear smoke. The only thing that sucked about painting these were the many hours of sanding them down.

    Oh yeah I have a crapload more pics, and am in the works of a website of my own. MacrossFA19.com (yeah baby!) But for the time being, if you'd like to see them they are in my photobucket, I just don't know how to let people them...Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. I am also working on my picture taking skills, please bear with me. :) 

    Anywho, I hope you guys like them............oh and alt. mode pics will be up later, gotta charge the batteries in the camera. Thanks for looking!

    They are up on ebay now.

    Fantastic. Wish we had these guys in the movie, even as identical twins they would have been much better than the twins we got.

    Im praying that in the third movie sunstreaker comes in and chooses the same mold as Sideswipe(probably a newer GM sports car by then). And Sunstreaker will make some smart remark about him looking better in the car mode than his brother. Also a few dont "mess up the paint job, just had it waxed" lines for good measure. That would fuggin aces.

    I'm with the others, these would have been great in the film. I like your choice of metallic colors, they have a very sleek appearance.

    o.k. i tried posting bigger pics. i hope those are alright. I dunno why they come out smaller than what I have at photobucket.

    Now theres an idea. i will give that a rey after the three I am working on now.

    You sound like you know a little too much about burglering stuff, lol.

    Thanks guys :)  thought I'd try something new, over the flat/matte look. And I am glad you like them.
