    Repainted this guy for a friend, he's the gold KO of the MP Sideswipe/Red Alert mold. I basically just repainted all that hideously clashing red plastic with a copper colour, and did all the little bits of detailing in metallic yellow, copper, gunmetal and silver. His hubcaps were originally gold, I repainted them silver.

    He's been named "Coppertone" by his owner, which is a step up from his previous name; "That ugly-ass knock-off". I think he looks quite smashing now.

    He seems to have a bit of a "show-off-but-somehow-likeable-jerk" vibe, maybe he should hang out with Rodimus?

    Yeah, this is VERY nice and classy. It's certainly inspiring as I have one of these on the way without a thought of what I want to do with it :lol

    Thanks for the thumbs-ups, I tried to do my best!

    Thanks, glad you like. I put alot of thought into the colours and detailing. I think I stripped and repainted his abs at least three times before I was happy with the colour choices.

    I also considered doing a metallic turquoise or blue instead of the copper colour, with hot pink or lime green accents. That would have been pretty crazy with the gold, very cheezy early 1990's! :lol  But I'm tempted to get my own KO and try it out.
