    So, I found myself with an extra Silverstreak, and decided to crank this out over the last few days.

    Just a straight-forward repaint, but I did swap the thighs and shoulder cannons from a junker Prowl I had. The blue was a mix of Tamiya's Metallic Blue and Clear Blue over silver, so it's got a nice deep metal flake appearence. Other details were done with clear Tamiya paints over chrome, and the rims and exhausts were chromed as well. The entire car body was clear coated with Future for a durable and high gloss finish.
