    Okay,

    I've decided on what my next project is, it's going to be a custom g1 accurate ( also drawing from the classics 2.0) Rotf Sideswipe. I'm working on a digibash now, but I'm coming to a mental block on how to deal with his sword/sideskirts. do i go solid red alt mode and sacrifice the sword detail or do like a lower silver trim?....

    I'm working on the digibashes now, but feel free to sound off.

    Also I'd like some idea's you guys might have for colors/brands of paint.

    Update:

    Here is a mock up i did using Gogdog's photo review seen here http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transformers-feedback/221175-rotf-deluxe-sideswipe.html

    well at this time i'm thinking a very vibrant aluminium color where the white is. most likely blackwashed and silver thin brushed with a little antiquing in the deep recessed points. Frankly i need to have the figure here before i start....i hate the waiting game!
