It's been awhile....this guy has been in the making for quite some time now. The "twins" specifically Sunstreaker have always been my favorite Transformers. SO when I ventured into making Alternators, these guys were definitely on my top to do list. Since Sunstreaker is a souped up version of Sideswipe, it was only natural to model Sideswipe first.
I started with this model a few months back...and have been working on it intermittently since then...when I finally decided to crank down and finish it this weekend...I admit I opretty much rushed him out of excitement. SO if it looks a little rough (especially the Viper mode) sorry...but my real goal in making these models is to soup up the robot modes...so I gave that more preference.
On a side note, I was really frustrated with the Viper mold used for the SUnstreaker/Sideswipe toy. It LOOKS good, but the legs have no poseability. And for an alternator, that kinda sucks,,,so anyway, I decided to rectify that with mu model. Enjoy...Sunstreaker to folow soon...hopefully not in another four months :)
