    Im looking to take advantage of the re release of the seeker mold by making a sunstorm, but Im kinda at a loss as to the colors i should use.
    Here's what i have on hand:
    Krylon Pumpkin Orange and Bauhaus Gold which is a yellow orange color.

    Any suggestions?

    if you want it to be accurate to the eHobby original, you'll need to mix your own orange paint. I've not once seen a paint that was a dead-ringer. I've found similar ones, but they all lacked the "creme" white that is mixed into the very bright base orange that makes him so sharp. I'd go with a classic white color (the original's white parts look like what you'd see in a hospital hehe)

    some people paint the chest part a more orange color that is without the creme mix just to add more depth to his color scheme and break things up. I actually like the look of this, but its strictly a preference.

    Heh, i have one prepped up myself. I prefer the red chest look to give him more variety in the colors, but yeah, go with your own preference.
