    Some folks liked the photo I put on the PotP Appreciation page so figured I'd share a few more. I made a few more changes in the name of accuracy!! Or at least what works for me.

    Why is this post not filled to the brim with praise for your work? Very well done.

    Thanks. If you've yet to do this yourself I recommend it. The Metallic Silver I used is difficult to remove, so the paint doesn't rub or scratch off. I just picked up a $2 marker from Walmart and used a medium brush and thin brush for the details.

    I got the gold and blue marker at Wally's as well. The gold blends in better in-person, the camera makes it look a little darker.

    Edit: Also a red marker. When painting areas red, first paint it silver as a base coat (Swoop's head. Otherwise the red paint kinda "pools" unevenly on gloss black paint. For some reason the red paint will cover the silver paint evenly.

    Wait a minute...you flipped the wings on Swoop. Holy hell, that's genius. How difficult was that? I was looking to try to find a way to incorporate his old G1 bomb launchers on the wings, now I just might recreate your mod and drill a tiny hole or something. Well done, those look great.
