    As the title suggests, I am considering painting my SS Stinger a Navy Blue. I am curious as to whether such is prudent. On the one hand, his robot mode may as well stay as it is, the color dichotomy could be cool. However, I do not want it to flake off of his swiveling hood. Perhaps floor polish could seal it. Anyway, the tightness may be variable, given the screw. Bestow on me some input, for such is welcome.

    I’m not sure, navy blue sounds like a very random color choice for Stinger.

    If I were you I’d go between beige (the Pagani Huayra’s trademark color scheme), yellow (Bumblebee), or green (Waspinator).

    Interesting. Beige does sound beautiful, come to think of it. I just might do that instead, if I can find where I put his head.

    Doing a quick digibash would go a long way in helping you out.

    Fascinating, certainly, though pricey. Besides that though, how could those Stingers have a child? (I suppose that question is better left unanswered...)

    I like the way you think, marvel b. In fact, a large number of my loved ones were adopted. They are some of the greatest individuals on the planet.

    I sure am curious about the beige! I have a spare Stinger that went wrong with customizing but he could still make a fun autobot! beige would make a cool smokescreen or a Prowl!

    With the more thought that I give it, beige is sounding great, though I still am missing the head. Jazz's head could work, for I have tried it, but Jazz is being redone into Ricochet. I am confident that someone could come out with a compatible and comparable head on Shapeways for either of them though.

    20181007_154805.jpg After searching for my good brush and coming up empty-handed, I chose to use a different one. Behold the initial beige coat. I am testing the color and fit out on the first of two Stingers. The second Stinger shall be painted likewise if I am content with it.
