    Great work as usual......

    ...but IIRC, Sideswipe's trunk spoiler was black in the movie?

    That looks awesome! Loving the realism in both modes!

    Might I ask what sort of beads were used for the eyes? They look absolutely stunning.

    Looks great! I've painted mine also, just haven't gotten any photos yet.

    Just to add criticism, and I'm no where near your caliber, may I just add a couple of detail issues?

    The only thing I noticed was if you look at the Botcon Sideswipe that was on display from the movie you can see that his spoiler is black as is a "V" shaped portion behind the driver's seat around the hump...

    Don't worry, I've attached a photo. But a very cool custom man, I love your work!

    Thanks bud! Perhaps you may get yours perfected from my mistake. HAHA! And I realized that the rims are wrong too, damn it!

    No problem at all! In all honesty... I think the rims would be a little harder to do, considering the mold isn't even the same as what is on the car... lol!

    The one thing I still can't do worth a damn is black washing... I can never get it to look right, even with the tutorial!!! So let me ask you, how did you do it? Both on Bumblebee and Sideswipe.

    I've got that Leader BB, I'm planning on painting him up too, so if you don't mind, I'd love to use those photos of yours as a guide.
