    So took a classics Silverstreak and have started to apply his primary coats. I was going to make him a more G1 accurate paint app but then I decide I'll just make my own character design.

    I can't decide whether or not to go con or bot on this. He kinda has the con's color tones so far.

    I am thinking I will add a skirt/ground effects color scheme to the car mode as well as chest/hood pin stripes (haven't decided on what style yet - double, thin, fat, single, dual, offset, centered, etc)... If he goes bot, the glass will be sky blue. If he goes con, the glass will be blood red or a dark grey or something to that effect.

    UPDATE: Car Mode - Well, I let it cure for a few days and then transformed it. Now I will be adding more detail, side skirts, front bumper ends, rear tail lights, front lights, maybe some pin stripes, etc. I also switched out the robot mode's blue lights with clear ones. I will be adding more details to the bot mode as well that I made a list from fellow members who shared their ideas for it. Thanks!!

    Hmmm...you are right, I'll be looking around for one. I may even mod this one a bit. Thanks!

    maybe you can sprue one up out of spare bits,super glue and epoxy? oh,and also old transperant plastic for a visor can be do able,just use anything,like the transperent bubbles from most tf boxes,it might help,and send a ample supply,also it doubles as recycling somehow...,but finding a way to make it tough,i guess add in layers till its solid enough

    I don't know why...but I'm getting a Protectobot vibe from this guy...my instincts say Streetwise, but I guess his colors are wrong for that...either way it's a great paint job!!!
    I like it!

    Looks nice. You could either start by cutting the horns off of this head or swap it with someone else. I would still mod it either way. I would also go with a different gun than the one that came with this figure.
