    First off, thanks to Tcracker for his supply list that helped me pick the right paint color. I used the SW mold from the 2 pack I bought from Codimus Prime so props to him as well for selling me the set at retail price.

    Before I painted this, I was on Seibertron and someone posted a comment about how SS and SW had "classic" paint apps but TC's was done in G1 styling. So I decided to give my TC a custom "classic" paintjob that was different but still paid homage to the G1 colors. Enjoy!!!

    Very nice. What paint did you use? I have a spare Skywarp I'm planning on converting, and wanted to make sure I get a paint that covers over the black well.

    NICE!

    One of the best Custom Classics T-Crackers I've seen to date. If I ever repaint one for myself I'd probably do something similar.

    Simple and attractive like the Classics Skywarp paint aps. Now only if Classics Starscream could have looked so good.
    BTW what color blue is that? I've done a toon accurate TCracker, but now I'm thinking of going more toy and that blue is nice.

    That is freakin' sweet! I love the new approach to the wing stripes. What blue paint did you use? The metallic finish looks the business. Beats Botcon by a mile!

    Meh, the paint job is very well done, but it's just another TC repaint. Though you deffinately have skill, it lacks originality.

    Wow, nice paint job. Puts Starscream's factory paint apps to shame.
