    I had some white leftover from last weeks Ultra Magnus, so why not use it on this weird beige of Sideswipe, that always bothered me.
    Another bigger change was his gun. I filed the handle off the red part, cause it was clear for me to leave the guns combined, so there was no need for it anymore. Then I drilled a hole into the barrel, and added black to the red part, and red to the black, to make it really look like one piece.

    Nice job! Still got the weathering on the shins and feet to keep it consistent, nice. What'd you use for the panel lines BTW? Diluted paint or a marker or something like that?

    Very nice and clean! I pretty much always prefer a pure bright white to an off-color white. I also like the red vein circuitry details.

    No not really. Usually after clearcoating everything stays where it should be.

    I use Tamiya panel line accent color. That stuff is so easy to handle, even if something goes wrong you just simply take a Q-tip, give it a little dip in thinner and rub it off again.
