a while back I made a bt nightbeat custom with paint and a sideswipe headswap. now that it seems my favorite line is running down, I got to thinking about what possible customs I could do that would require little more than a repaint to make a decent G1 character. then I realized, wait, nightbeat was repainted into minerva, and there's a police version of the rsx! so I got an opened one cheap on ebay, and spent quite a while painting white over the factory black. took a while, let me tell ya. much thanks to superquad7 for his pointers on how to do a decent job painting by hand. I've got red pinstriping tape coming in the mail, which I'll put on to make the crosses on the doors and hood. but for right now, here's the one pic I took, along with my old nightbeat for comparison.
