    I bought an LoC Starscream a little while ago for the sole purpose of customizing as Metalhawk, but had no time to make him while I was home for spring break. So I did this little Photoshop "blueprint" to plan the colors and (if necessary) tweak while I'm at school so I can get the job done when I'm home.

    Since Metalhawk's never had an update or homage, I felt compelled to stay true to his G1 vehicle and robot modes. Unfortunately, some compromises had to be made, namely G1's all yellow/gold chest.

    I was reluctantly light on "paint apps" because I didn't want to make him a simple color swap of Starscream, and I wasn't sure where to put new ones without going overboard. And of course there's the fact that the drawing came from Supreme Starscream's instructions, though the actual custom will be the LoC version. I'm thinking the remaining paint apps will be yellow/gold just to get more of one of G1's more prominent colors in.

    Also, I haven't quite decided what the exact colors will be. The yellow areas may be gold on the final, and the white could wind up being silver. Hell, the blue and red could be metallic as well.

    think it looks great in Robot-Mode, but I am not crazy about the colors in Jet-Mode, its a little too blue. Maybe some detailing with the yellow here and there.

    Don't make it all metallic. I think some of it should be flat to keep some contrast.
