    Hey guys, I think I mentioned in the Custom Mod Wars thread that I've been busy with a new job this week. Nevertheless, I've managed to fit in a few small customs projects.

    I have 2 more Alt Billboards that I've had for forever and a day it seems like. I just got the urge to get them and weather them. I wanted to make them a bit darker and more heavily weathered than the first one (seen in that link, shameless plug #2). After I finished, I just grabbed my extra Classics Starscream my mother-in-law got for me as a get well gift of sorts a few weeks ago.

    I removed all of the alt mode red paint with alcohol and Q-tips. Then I got black paint and water and just streaked it on. I quickly rubbed off most of the top layer, leaving the weathering present. Then I masked off the tail fin stripes, painted the blue, painted the red, and finally added the small white stripe using a flat gray. And here he is with a few quick photos:

    I have to say, you did such a great job in weathering him, that his red almost looks too shiny underneath it all.

    Yep! But he's still alive and kickin'! I've always thought bot look tough when they've been beaten and battered and they're still standing wanting more. I think we all know that ol' Screamer has had his can beaten in more times to count!

    Starscream, you look like Optimus Prime sent you through a lazer powered trash compactor!

    Very nice work!
