    I like it! I can't see if you did this or not but I would outline those gold apps on his chest and waist with a darker shade of blue than the overall color blue you used. This would help define the gold detail edges more distinctly and really bring out those details. Overall man, awesome work!

    I'm not so hot on that hood flame but the rest is quite nice. I dig it!

    the blue on his chest is a wash to define the edges of the mold. Im not sure how much darker the blue can be around the gold. Its already pretty dark.
    The hood flame is a homage to his g1 look. I am aware the flame is both yellow and red, but one color to me seems to suit it alot better, plus i already sold it so yeah. lol.

    I like how you leave the door panels out to help make him look different than your Sunstreaker. Again, this is a great use of the Sideswipe mold!!

    thanks! its not easy painting a figure after it was rough on the surface, alot of thinning went into it beforehand.
    Thanks, yeah i did that to give off the "white wing" feeling hes got in the G1. Thanks man, i figured since Turbo Tracks is a corvette with the hood concealed in botmode, why not use sideswipe since its the same principal?

    Oh I know it's an homage and I'm actually glaad it's not multi-colored. I just don't dig Tracks' hood flame in general but that's personal taste.

    But still doesn't take away from how awesome this is. Really makes me wish he was Tracks in the movie.

    I love this mold for Tracks. Should have been his name in the movies too... :)

    So your critique isnt at my custom then, its at Tracks himself. Thanks, im glad you feel this is awesome non the less :) 

    Sure thing bro. I had taken a bunch but alot came out blurry. i will change the background to white and hopefully that will help with the contrast in the pictures.
    I like that sideswipe was the character with this look, it grew on me. But i think they couldve done one very similar for tracks. I very much like his way of talking like a rich dude in the g1 and animated.
