    Well i finally finished my custom seeker and I have to say it was fun. I ran into some problems here and there but everything turned out alright. All I need to do now is some touch-up and get some stickers. Let me know what ya'll think. Also sorry about the pics.....I don't have very much experience at professional pictures and I just try my best.

    I don't have a very stead hand either. lol

    Maybe something like this would work.
    It's a quick and dirty digi.

    Maybe not as bright a green, I just used it so it would stand out.

    You don't necessarily need a really steady hand. Get out some masking tape, tape around the area you want to paint, make sure it's on there good so the paint doesn't bleed through the tape, and paint away! I like the color scheme for this guy. Looks pretty good so far, but could definitely use some more details.

    Looks brilliant; the green's not an obvious choice for a Seeker, but it works. Regarding the paint apps, I'd recommend sticking with the white, or a very light green. As for a steady hand, you should be okay. As long as you follow the scribed panel lines and such, I generally find it's reasonabbly easy to get half-decent apps.

    Very nice work. I have a similar custom cooking at the moment. More custom seeker backgrounders are always welcome.

    Looking forward to seeing him with additional detailing.
