    Started repainting my Starscream, here is what I have done so far.

    I'm still debating on wether or not to paint the tail fins blue

    I have my basecoat color done along with some panel lining. I should have him finished sometime this week.

    By the the way, I challenge your claim of Right-side up!

    Starscream looks great so far. Did you sand the parts before painting?

    Well its not really paint... and no I didn't sand them, no need to.

    I plan on doing a full write up on this stuff sometime soon. What it is is vinyl "paint". Basically its paint, acetone, and some other stuff. The key word being acetone, helps make the paint permanent... i.e. it won't chip or crack during transformation.

    I don't want to say much more, still trying the stuff out. But I think I have found a medium between full blown dying and painting. Still trying to find its high points and low points.

    More to come later.

    I hope I didn't put anybody off by what I said, I'm not trying to secretive, just covering all my bases before I say this stuff is awesome or sucks ass.

    I'll put up a whole post later tonight on the stuff I have been using.
