    Not entirely sure if this is the right forum, but how would I go about dyeing the rubber bits on my FE Starscream? Does the dye stick the same as on plastic or what would I have to do?

    Many people used a sharpie marker with great success.

    The section on dyeing in the Radicon forums only applies to plastic. I was wondering about the rubber parts on the FE Starscream. If I can't dye it, I'm just gonna buy the Fakebusker addon and dye from there.

    You have to do it quickly or it will melt, a few seconds will do. Dunk it a few times till it is the right shade. I did some seeker nosecones that way and they came out fine.
