    This is my second custom repaint of this figure. This time, I paid extra special attention to rub points so that now they are gone!! I will post up again after I complete the wing stripes, missiles launchers, and jet mode.

    I decided to do a different black this time and a different purple then my last Skywarp. I also painted the feet purple this time and painted the purple parts so that the black lines can be seen through the purple. Anyway...

    UPDATE: Wing stripes and launchers all done.
    UPDATE: JET MODE - COMPLETED!

    Thanks! I won't be selling the one posted above because I repainted my last one and sold it. The one in my post above is actually better then my last one posted below in 'this reply' (in my opinion) and so I decided to keep the one above (my new one) for my personal collection. I'd be happy to fix yours up or do a new one for ya!

    The two pics in 'this reply' are of the original I had, and then repainted and sold.

    Update: Jet mode

    This is the transformed Jet Mode. I haven't done the stripes yet, I want the figure to fully cure first. I still have to do the launchers too and the thrusters. I am very happy with this one's outcome!

    Pretty nasty there Nemesis. A lot better than your last one. Keep it up. You could never tell who it originally was.

    Nicely done! He looks great in both modes. Your first Skywarp didn't look bad at all if you ask me, but I'm glad you feel you've improved on your second. It's satisfying as customizers to look back and go "wow, I'm much better at this now!"

    Yeah, that is a great feeling and that's what I mean. My first one was good and I put a lot of effort into it and did it my best. This time though, I learned a few more things about repainting and can see it working out in this one so to me, it's better. Thanks!

    Thanks. I've decided to let this one go. When I get an airbrush, I'll be doing another one for sure.
