Here is my second, highly modified Sunstreaker made from the ROTF Swerve figure. I'm very impressed with Hasbro's mold of this figure, and see lots of potential for custom ideas using it. I made a Sunstreaker before, but felt it still looked too much like Sideswipe and that it could use a few more subtle changes. I removed the front corners of the fender/hood/bumper from the feet and attached them to the hood, joined and relocated the "blades" from his arms to the car body, gave him actual feet instead of wheels, put a couple blasters where the blades were, and made a custom spoiler to make him look more like a race car. After it was disassembled, cleaned and primed, I sprayed the majority of the parts with a mix of Tamiya Lemon Yellow and Copper, which darkened up the yellow and gave it a little metal flake. Then I used a trick I found by accident a while back, spraying a thin coat of Testors Model Master Acryl Gloss Black, which gives off a cracked, marblized effect, rather than just a plain old black racing stripe. Then I brushed on a few thin coats of Tamiya Gun Metal, Chrome Silver, Red, Black, Gold, and Copper to finish him up. After that, I sprayed everything with Duplicolor Clear Lacquer, which gives a high gloss finish that's as smooth as glass. I took my time to make him as detailed as possible, since the figure has so many to bring out. I have lights installed, was working on a battery box to fit inside the figure but havent quite worked out the bugs with it yet. I may end up putting quick connectors on the wires so it can be plugged in to an external source, when I get it working right I'll post more pics. Enjoy.
