    Looking at CGI and movie images, the front hood part on Sideswipe/Swerve's foot was making me less than pleased. To give him more "accurate" feet, I simply broke off that hood part and sealed it back to the rest of the hood (see second pic) I shaved around where it used to be (on the foot) making the brake rotor visible all the way around. in the example below, I filled and sanded the small gap where I attached it back on the hood.

    He still stands great (using the heels as support)

    And here they are repainted.

    Love love love this.

    That yellow paint looks so smooth and perfect on the Sideswipe mold. The feet do look much better as well.

    Only complaint, maybe adding a little black to Sunstreakers head. Just something to break up all the yellow going on. Otherwise, like always, your work is just incredible.

    These are absolutely beautiful. Love the paint colors, and all the little detail work.

    I wished the HA version folded up this nicely.

    Fantastic work F_R :thumb

    you've got to do another set, use the sidearm swipe as 'streak and swerve as swipe, that way theyll be a bit different but still the same in alt mode

    really liking the detailing with gold

    Definitely better than the Movie twins! a question though, why did you use ROTF swerve's head on sideswipe? personal preference?
