I wasn't gonna write, but HOT DAMN, that is smoov. It's a sad statement to TakTom's QC that you were able to paint this up to perfection in a day or two, and TT's paint is severely lacking. Do you have a paint booth? If so, would you be willing to answer questions via PMs? If you didn't answer in the first post, what do you use? Acrylics? Enamels? Type(s) of primers? Anyhow, that is so damn sexy. I wasn't sure I was going to attempt a "Masterpiece" Generation 2 Sideswipe, since it'd be really difficult to make it look....like it could exist in the "real world" (and especially since, botched, it would waste a $85+ collectible). I think yours works perfectly, and as much as I love the outre colour pallette of G2, I think even transparent lime paint on the windows would tug at the verisimilitude of this piece. However, the large (G1) Autobot insignia bugs me, also. Not only on this custom, but on the actual official toy. If I try this custom, I'll probably do my first experiment in thermochromic paint(s) for true camoflage. Just think - You were the first to do this, and there probably will be dozens. Interestingly, I'm fairly sure yours will remain the best, also.
