    Since the real Classics Skywarp will be pretty dead-on G1, I just went a bit out there with this one. Sorry for the crap pics.

    That's pretty good. It goes along with the other two that you've done nicely. I personally prefer the official one in the 2-pack with Ultra Magnus, whome I also like. Nice work. What's next, the coneheads? LoL, that would be funny. Peace out.

    LOL, I'm just that good. I'm planning on doing a repaint of Ramjet up as Dirge if we don't get one in the Classics line, and maybe one of Thrust if we don't get him too. I've got so many ideas, but I haven't completed any of them, let alone actually starting the kitbashing process. I'm going to stick with my Prime kitbash, so that should get me started with some of the ideas that I've come up with so far. Skywarp is my favorite Seeker, and I actually like the differences between this one and G1, but I still want to get the 2-pack one. Peace out.

    Quick question... what kind of paint did you use on the nosecone? I can't find a good paint that will stick to that kind of soft plastic.

    Model master "Acrly" accrylics. Every oil-based paint I tried NEVER dries on the nose, but these water-based accrylics do. I also thinned them a bit and sprayed them with an airbrush. Don't know if that effected it any. I suspect painting straight on with a brush would work as well.

    In alt mode it looks like MP Starscream, which is not a bad thing in this case.
