    Very nice. The 2 red stripes above the front wheels seem a bit out of place but otherwise very nice.

    Very nice looking custom.... my only complaint is SWERVE??? Damn I'm still looking for one! :cry 

    Is it safe to assume there is a Starscream in the cards?

    Damn, nice looking Alt.

    Skywarp and Thundercracker. Now you need to make the other 4 Seekers :D 

    Wouldn't Thrust, Ramjet and Dirge look good as Mazda RX8s as their Alts.?

    Mad props :thumbs2:

    Great job man! Even though I hope we get jet alternators, that totally works.

    Thanks everyone!

    Starscream in definately next. He'll most likely be a copy of
    Viagra Prime's King Starscream. It's actually what I based TC and SW off of. I really think the Corvette suits them perfectly.

    As far as Ramjet, Thrust, and Dirge. I'll do them if I can come up with interesting enough paint jobs. I like using real life cars as inspiration and Corvette's got a lot of pace cars that don't look half bad. I want them to stand out from each other and not look like a bunch of repaints. We'll see.

    Thanks again for the compliments everyone!

    What kind of paint did you use on Thundercracker? It looks so good I don't see any evidence of red anywhere.

    Wow, that is such an awesome piece of work, I am thoroughly impressed. I saw your Megatron as well and was taken back, wanted to make it mine. Do you ever do commissioned work? I noticed the heads are the same for Skywarp & Thundercracker would you mind me asking what you used? I actually have been looking to replace some of the heads on the Binaltechs.

    Considering that it started from a Swerve, it's a SWEET paint job and custom head!

    The only real problem is that the color is essentially the same as Tracks. If I didn't know this started as a Swerve, it wouldn't seem like much of a mod (save for the head). He needs something to give him more of a Seeker flavor.
