    Bluestreak here is a commission piece created from a reissue Silverstreak and junker G1 Smokescreen. He retains the Silverstreak copyright stamps so it can be identified as a custom if the need arises.

    He is painted in Humbrol acrylic spray paint and decorated with Reprolabels. Most successful use of sprays yet for me and I think I might go back to them or invest in an air brush following this positive experience. Beats struggling for hours on end with brushes to get the best finish. Brilliantly the shade of spray matches the reprolabels pretty well.

    Robot mode pictures are coming but due to sunlight reflecting too much off the figure I need to retake them.

    Thanks guys, this guy came out so nicely I'm tempted to make one for myself. Usually I use brushes and get a good finish with few brush strokes but this took a lot less time to do. I got the paints when I was halfway through the project and thought the spray looked so much better than my hand painting I stripped it all off and just started again.
