Thanks guys!

I know what you mean about the eyes,
They look fine in real life but the photos make it look strange. I ummmmed about the colour and eyes so much, I think I'll rework the eyes

The pearlescent paint though really makes the figures pop, and i think this is going to stay on my desk for a while

No doubt someone can do this like 100% better than I can, i just hope it inspires

If someone can do this better, then I want to meet them because I can't imagine it. By how it looks, it should be on a toy aisle somewhere.

Question: Did you have to do much modding or do they just somehow fit together?

Nope, no modding - starscream just wraps around the back and holds in place tightly, when I get home I'll get the photos off my iPhone which show the pre-painted combination - I did that because after half an hour of faffing about to make it work I was definitely going to forget haha!

Starscreams hip joints are way loose out of the box and I think it really helped that I gave it a coat of the white pearl Tamiya as a finish because the joints tighted up a treat!

Also, starscream's head when transforming WILL RUB! I found out the hard way, then repainted. And put a small coating of superglue on the rub spots on the head, i left it a while before gently transforming, and hazah! Totally worked! Gave a lot of condition to it and could be pushed in and out with 99% no rubbing!

Even in the jet mode, the two figures hold real tight, I really enjoyed doing this one!

So.....which next? Classics piranacon from voyager seaspray? Or classics scorpinok.....?

Now i'm back for a little while, here is the pre-painted method of affixing starscream to the back of soundwave.

It took me a long time to work it out but it works a treat and absolutely doesn't budge.

Going to fix the eyes in a bit, then i'm looking at what to do next:

Voyager Seapray > Piranacon (non-combiner)

or

Scorponok, which will be a big undertaking with lots of scratchbuilding, but i'm sort of wanting to push forward in my experience.

i'm just asking your opinion guys
