    I'm having a guess Tracks has been done quite a bit, but this is my version I recently finished. I really enjoyed doing this figure, great fun!
    A Universe/Classics Sunstreaker was used. A new head, Excellion (I think ) that sits on a ball joint. I used Energon Megatron's weapons. I intended painting them white, but liked the black so stuck with them. High quality enamel paints used. A couple different metallic blues mainly. Varnished very carefully at the end, and Transforms very smoothly. I have two sets of wings that are both finished, but haven't decided on what ones to use yet!

    You know, I've never really had a problem with people using the SS mold for Tracks. It really does work despite it not being a Stingray, or any other Corvette for that matter.

    Looks pretty sweet as far as the paintwork goes but the lack of white makes his head stand out like a sore thumb. Maybe you could swap out the white arms and thighs from Sideswipe in place of the grey ones you're using

    great work on Tracks, that mold is also one of the best for customs.

    I'm not crazy about the gun pods, but overall, I like this better than the upcoming Hasbro version. Good stuff! :)

    That Excellion/Hot Shot head works out EXTREMELY well for Tracks :thumb
