Another ice storm commission......

This is another commission for surlyj....this thing was a pain in my ass....lol..

He wanted an Icestorm that wasn't the "traditional" seeker look but didnt want the 3D effects. So thats when we decided to go this route ,,,using chrome to give an icy look.....it wasnt really that big of a pain in the ass...it just took along time with alll the different coats and types of paint....took alot longer than the traditional seeker paint. i used tamiya fin surface primer, tamiya pure white, tamiya french blue, tamiya gloss black, testors gloss black enamel, alclad chrome, and a little tamiya acrylic white misted over for the frosty look...lol

Lovely. I may buy an Acid Storm to do something similar, now. Well played, sir.

Awesome! I can't wait to complete my seeker shelf with this unique bad boy! Part of me wants to learn to do my own customs, but why bother when you keep doing such good work!

Damn this is nice..... All you need to do now, is a Icestorm where White is the base color, and you could have your own Ice Seeker team, LOL. Kickass!
In alt mode, I get the feeling this would be a great as a Cobra Jet
