    Well I finally got around to taking pics to submit my first entry to Radicons.

    This is my first major repaint. As such it needs a bit of touch up as I didn't sand enough or in all the right spots to prevent rubbing. Over all I am happy with it but am considering going back to paint the face and perhaps some more trim colors, but only time will tell.

    Some of you may be tired of seeker repaints at this point but I can't get enough.

    This project started out as a dye job. I was however unhappy with the results. I couldn't get a uniform color and destroyed the legs because I had the water too hot. Oh well live and learn. The thighs are still the dyed plastic. I was happy with the color and it added a bit of variation on the purple. I have not used any clear coat.
    Paint used:
    Testors one coat lacquer Inca Gold
    Testors one coat lacquer Diamond Dust
    Testors model master lacquer Ultraviolet Pearl
    Krylon fusion Satin Black

    Let me know what you think. Any suggestions you have I would find helpful. I have another to post up but that will have to wait till tonight. Thanks for looking.

    I call it Laker Seeker or Decepticon Mamba ? , just look at the colors, may be KB24 Seeker ? Might as well try that on my extra Starscream.

    Thanks all. I'm glad you liked it.

    Funny you should mention that. A friend at work who is a Lakers fan suggested yellow so I made it gold instead.

    I also forgot to mention I am in need of a classics Rodimus flame missle for this as the Dreadwind flame is only a place holder. If anyone has a spare shoot me a pm.

    I like that idea of a purple seeker I'm currently working on othe figs and if I get lucky I'll do the Decepticon Mamba .

    Great custom. I have an idea.....:)
