    Here is my custom painted Bluestreak to pay homage to the original Diaclone Bluestreak that so many of us wish we had. I used the much more articulated Classics Silverstreak mold and gave him a very durable paint alteration. Custom printed Autobot decal was made for his chest/hood. I know it's been done before, but I still wanted to do one for myself.

    That blue coating looks so shiny, I could almost take a bite of it!

    Flawless paint job!

    Airbrush?

    Spray paint actually. I use my airbrush sometimes, but not for this one. Thanks for your comments.

    The paint looks flawless and nice. Although I do have an extremely minor suggestion...if you really want to go with the full Diaclone look for your custom, I suggest not to have the Autobot insignia. The Diaclone toys in the early 1980s did not have insignias. But, it can stay on there since it is your excellent-looking custom.

    I know it shouldn't be there, but I thought I would put one on to emulate where it would go if Takara ever gave the fans what it has been asking for for decades.
