    hi there. i came across a junker TRU 2 pack voyager SS that had no tail fins or gun. i used this as a model for my supreme SS (skywarp) repaint. i have 4 supereme SS about to repaint. first one will be skywarp, then thundercracker, and maybe i'll leave it up to you guys to determine if i should do a sunstorm or thrust. then for the last one, i will just chrome out the silver on SS to make him look better. any feedback on this guy would be nice. i feel i'm getting alot better at repainting, and think i'm ready to tackle 4 huge supreme size bots for my collection. oh, and i may put this up on ebay soon, so if you want it, make an offer.

    What painting method did you use? It came out very slick.

    NOTE: i just copied and pasted my reply from seibertron to here. just had the same question.

    well, since i couldnt for the life of me find any violet purple spray, i had to use another alternative. i used a metallic purple permanent marker, then sealed it w/ krylon matte finish. i used krylon fusion semi gloss black as a base as well.
    the metallic markers are very easy to use on TFs. beats the hell out of hand painting it on. now if i had a spray in that color, i wouldve used it instead. but i rather like the outcome of it.

    works ridiculously great. as long as you seal the marker app, it will never rub away. plus it leaves a nice finish.
    you cant really see it too well in the pics, but the metallic purple really stands out nicely.

    I was just about to ask what you used for the purple, it really pops!
    I'm literally half way through the same project but got stumped when I couldnt find the right purple!
    Looks like metalic markers are the way to go. What brand did you use?

    i know its not the best method to use, but it is very effective, and once you put a matte or semi gloss coat over it, there's no easier way to do colors for those hard to reach (or in this case, hard to find colors).

    Awesome! Thanks dude! 1 more question, do the markers cover over dark colors or does it need a white or silver under coat?

    no, i just marked w/ the marker. its pretty solid, but if you try to mark over b4 it dries, it will sort of remove what you put on. what i did was make a base purple, (in all areas, then put a matte finish on, then repeated until the outcome was clean. doing that twice should suffice. i love the way the matte finish makes it look like more work went into it. its great. try it. lemme know.

    Thanks for the tip! I'll try and pick up some markers at the weekend?
    Are you planing on doing any of the other seekers?
    Awesome work by the way!

    That looks awesome. I love how the colors came out, plus I'm envious that you even have a voyager SS and a junker to paint. Great work. My vote for your extra Supremem SS is to do a purple drone seeker or my second choice is Sunstorm

    I had the exact idea to paint Supreme Starscream into Skywarp and Thundercracker. Got a couple extra ones and I was getting paint yesterday for them.

    crap



    that first one though looks good

    if i may request that someone does a digibash to help me out w/ him. i've only really seen the titanium and legends ver. not very much detail. is there a comic image or something anyone can direct me to? i am seriously considering doing him. only prob is i have to paint every inch of him. doesnt he have white thighs and forearms? mostly yellow w/ orange trim? any red?
    silver? LMK
    yes he is mine as well. i wanna get the 100 buck MP right now, but i just snagged me an MP megs. maybe someone can buy this repaint off of me to contribute to that cause!! :p  worth a shot right? here's my list. and of course i negotiate w/ multple items.
