    This is my first custom and I think it came out ok. I would have never thought of doing one because I don't have the skills but the fact that I would never have a thundercracker broke me down. Tell me what ya think.

    I am really happy with it. The flash makes it look more glossy than it really is.

    Paint jobs looks good, although a bit too teal for my taste. What kind did you use?

    I'd have to agree its a tiny bit too shocking, but in the first picture, I didn't know who thundercracker was (i always get them confused with each other) and I couldn't tell which was the custom! (that's a good hting)

    That's the funny thing. It's a starscream. My kid lost one of the missles so I bought another one and let him have this one. He gave it back so I could make this but no missles for this guy.

    It's not quite as shocking in person, the flash makes it super glossy.

    for repainting, I prefer to use Citadel Colours. They dont get that gloss look that Testors does.

    The only place to get it (generally) is at Games Workshop. You can also order it online through games-workshop.com

    Really good, but way shiny. Hit it with some clear matte, and it will be amazing.
