    hi there! here is one of my latest creations that i've done in chrome.. im kinda on the fence with this figure and would like to get some ideas and feedback from my fellow radicons...

    should i:

    a) give him the red and blue chrome treatment (original op colors)
    b) give him the black and purple chrome treatment (nemessis prime)
    c) leave him alone (lucky draw style)
    d) ???

    I say keep this one as is. And make 2 more in accurate toon and nemmy colors.

    The next step would be to put them up on ebay quick.

    it is paint

    hey! i was going for the cheapo knock off look! :lol 

    the how and what has been discussed in one of my previous threads. you can get most of the info by reading through the comments. the how much depends on which paint brand you go with.

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/215607-ice-scream-anyone.html

    the mouthpiece still moves freely. the figure was completely taken apart prior to painting.

    thanks to everyone who's provided input so far :)

    Red and blue. It was my favorite thing about your Starscream. Accurate colors, just in chrome.

    You better make it Black and Purple. No point making it look like a KO then selling it on Ebay, if you ask me.

    Although best option would be to: d) send him to me.

    I actually like it the way it is. Looks like a super rare variant or Lucky Draw.
