    Decided I didnt want to wait for Starscream to be released and didn't want to blow a bunch of cash on SW so I bought cheap Acid Storm figures and made my own.

    I have a TC in the works just havnt finished it yet.

    The green in the cockpit area is not nearly this bright in person, the flash makes it much more apparent.

    Looks really good! The purple on Skywarp looks a bit brown, maybe your flash did that. Overall I like it a lot!:thumbs2:

    It isnt brown but it is a muted purple. The muted tone was intentional, and the red on SS is actually more muted than the flash allowed for. I wanted more realistic tones that arent bright and cartooney.

    I really like what you've done with your starscream. It's not very G1 on the torso like the others and even though I prefer a traditional Starscream, This take is different. I like it very much.

    I'll set up a white board tomorrow and get some better pics that show the colors truer. Alt mode pics too.

    I like the idea of chocowarp though...mmmmm.

    I also didnt want a straight up G1 look so I took some liberties in the paint scheme.

    Thanks for the comments. :)

    I'm curious, what paints did you use and how did you paint them? Sprays? Brushes? Air brush?

    I used model masters spray paint for the base coat. So for SS, painted the entire figure navy sea gray. Then used model masters enamels and brushed in the color and details.

    I'd like to pick up an airbrush and try my hand at it but good ones arent cheap.
