    This is great! It only serves to highlight even more that they really should've had him, red in the movie...

    What's flood time?

    Looks really great and clean altezen. The photos are sharp as is the red color you've used. It looks a touch towards the orange side, but I really like what you've done.

    Welcome to Radicons too.

    Wow, Sideswipe looks amazing! I really like the red you chose, it reminds me of the red color of 1990's Camaros. I also really like the colors you picked for the bot parts, they make all those parts look like metal without being all one stainless steel color. This gives me confidence that I could repaint a good looking Sideswipe for myself without having to worry about knowing how to drybrush him perfectly to make him realistic looking-I just need the right colors. Great work!

    Thx TCracker, I used Shine Red from Mr. Color and it has a tone between Red and Orange. A bit like Ferrari Red.

    damn clean paint application, looks like it was dipped in plastic.

    I like the clean detail on the bot mode

    Thx stratonrye. If you intend repaint the Sideswipe bodywork, you probably would want to trim down the doors a little, coz it is quite a tight fit.

    The feet are backwards. Is it easier to pose him with the feet that way?

    Thx shadowfall1976, I wanted to try a "Clean factory" look for the Sideswipe. One of my next project will be the extreme opposite, a weathered, dirty Rampage. Should be out this few days.

    8< . Thx. Now I know why I had difficulty posing it. I got the kit without the transformation manual. Thx for the tip newguy. Guess I have to retake some pix.
