    My second of of the three Biplane Seeker repaints. As of this writing, this is my favorite repaint I've done. I just love Skywarp's colors, and they translate well into this mold. Unfortunately, black is hard for my camera to photograph, but I hope you guys like it anyway. lol

    This one only took a single day to paint, and it was really fun! I used Testor's Acrylic and Enamel paints for this one. Everything was hand brushed. Enjoy! :)

    With these colors in robot mode, I can't help but see the insections instead of Skywarp.

    Either way, great paint job, I love it! I should really get that mold too. I think he's the only RotF mold I don't own one version of.

    I really wanted to do that with this mold, and make some "Hearts of Steel" seekers, but I just couldn't get over the head this mold uses...it was just too...weird, especially with that little hat thing.

    So nice to see someone else had the same idea and went through with it. Now I don't have to wonder what mine would have looked like.

    Nice paint job.

    Thanks for the comments guys. I really appreciate them. :D 

    Now that I think of it, I might do a Sunstorm. I'm finishing up Thundercracker right now. He'll be up in a bit.

    Love that you did all three of these guys. I don't like the mold but if Hasbro put out a 3 pack colored like yours I wouldn't be able to resist :thumb
