    Greetings! Good to see ya!

    Finally. Finally I found her. The one. The one I've been searching for....

    No, not HER, you romantic twit! I mean TFA Arcee! Sheesh! Anyway, let me tell you all that white and pink was a huge pain to paint!

    She was made using a combo of Dupli Color Super White Enamel, and a hand-mixed pink of my own design, using Model Master Acryl paints. The eyes were painted silver, then clear blue was used for that vac-metal effect. All of the hand mixed paint was used, so she's a one of a kind. A coat of Pledge Future was used for durability.

    Thanks for your time!

    THAT is awesome! It's really remarkable the difference in coloring when you look at the before and after pics...If I ever get the chance to buy this figure I will definately be re-painting it in this style...prolly gonna use your custom as a guide if you don't mind.
    Great job!

    100 times better. I just got one at TRU this morning, and was wondering what it would look like painted. Now I am totally doing this. Fits right in the classics/universe
