    Here is my Classics Cliffjumper with silver paint apps removed and black accents painted along with custom head made by Valkfan. The head was painted with Testors Flat Red and Silver. I thinned the paint down really well and it took to the custom head nicely. Very easy to paint even for a novice. The custom head was very high quality-VERY nice work Valkfan.:cool:

    Mmmm... I don't know... that head really just doesn't say... Cliffjumper.

    It's a nice custom though.

    I took his arms and legs off and soaked them in 91% Alcohol you can get at Walmart for around 2 bucks. DO NOT SOAK THE CLEAR PARTS! Dark Convoy and I learned the hard way that alcohol likes to munch on clear stuff-your Cliffy will die from this! Just take the two screws off his feet and soak the parts with the accents in the alcohol bath. Be mindful that the head lamps are clear under the blue paint as well, and for some reason the paint takes a while to get off. You may want to do that part by hand rather than soaking.
