    Painted black over battle damage

    Shoulder cannon and gun is from shapeways by Sledgehammer’s Smithery that you can find here

    CW Sideswipe Weapons by TheSledgeHammer on Shapeways

    Made the cannon adjustable. I used an extra Classics Prowl cannon, cut it in half, then carved out a spot for the lil tab that connects to the shoulder.

    Autobot foil decal to top it all off :)

    Cool modification, and makes a designer proud to see his stuff getting used! Thank you! (Although I now have a version of this set made just for the siege mold XD)

    I discovered that a G1 Sideswipe gun can be easily attached to a Walmart party pack crazy straw, (which is 5 mm sized), cut the straw to handle size and it makes the perfect Sideswipe gun. The guns are very cheap to find on E-bay!
    I already ordered the red version for the upcoming Seige Red Alert.

    It does look better cleaner. The battle damage they do is just too much of a messy dry brush for my liking.

    While the damage paint apps are neat, Sideswipe looks way better clean. Nicely done.
