    Hi,
    I have completed my draft version of Tracks but I appear to have a problem with the stickers they didn't come out right. see photo

    I got transparent stickers to prevent white lines, do i neet white sticker sheets?

    I don't want to paint them or anything.

    The problem is the Red sticker is see through and I wanted it to be more of a solid red colur and more higher quality.

    Should I try PHotoshop or Fireworks i can use as well.

    regards

    Scorponok.

    clear/transparent deckles will show the color from underneath. put a yellow sicker over red surface, you'll get orange.
    you'd need white/opaque stickers to avoid this. Either trim to the edge, or float the graphics on a blue (or whatever color of the surface) that matches.

    Ok I will attempt this tommorow i Just need to get some more decent ink cartridges for the printer. I do want to use stickers to make it more G1 in appearance also i don't think I can spray paint straight lines as i am new to painting.

    Will also look at the tutorials.

    I messed up my spray paint really bad and also decided to gas my room... I need to start again completely from scratch. I will definetely use stickers as Spray painting is too hard for me at the moment.

    Also how do you remove paint from clear parts? Do i use automative Castrol Super Clean? will that work?

    While this is a project, simply asking for a problem solution is better suited for Creative General Discussion, so here we are.

    Good, I have completed the back portion and wings of my figure now, added wheeljacks wings painted gold, modified tracks added a black bumper + silver exhaust ports and finally wheeljacks spoiler now painted black. I have finally got ink for the printer so will attempt the stickers again tonight.

    In regards to spray painting i had to repaint the hood of tracks again unfortunately some go on the clear parts, will these be removed using wet sandpaper and how long should i leave it for? all of my parts were painted using Tamiya paints only, I prefer them over warhammer as they are 1/2 the price and in better supply.

    Personally I really enjoyed myself making this figure especially the head + arms and redesigned shotgun. I will post a photo once it is completed.
