    This were just a few simple mods since I had some leftover parts and this Starscream was incomplete to begin with so I couldn't use it for Superion, but after exchanging parts with some others (superion members) this I what's done!

    Guess only some painting left :p 

    UPDATE2:
    Some black painting and detailing left+ Decepticon symbol...
    If anyone interested in this you can make me an offer (>25euro)

    UPDATE3:
    More pics some comparison with the original Energon Starscream (middle)
    Also Classics/Generations Thrust (left) which I used for reference!
    It made from Energon Starscream, Energon Skyblast, Armada Skywarp :) 
    I'm gonna use these photo's to digibash were I want the dark-grey/black

    Besides, G1 Thrust at least was never meant to have a conehead in the first place (I certainly prefer him without). That's a nice 'bash, G60 - he'll look nice painted up. Are you going for G1/Powerlinxy red, or Armada green?

    thnx mate, well it's going to be sold so I don't know what people would ike for a color... if it was for my own collection I'd copy the generations/classics tone, since I have only that one and no G1 to really get a colormatch :)

    thnx guys!...

    what colors do you all suggest? I personally would say G1
    but since it's gonna be sold I'm wondering what the majority would want?

    That works really well, and it's a fairly simple mod.

    Surprised that Hasbro didn't recolour that mold much, I mean it was pretty much forgotten about until BotCon 2009.

    My vote goes for G1 colours. Then make all of the seekers.

    Plus I don't think that EVERY iteration of Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet have to have the conehead.

    and more can be found here, I guess you are right not to match the classics one, since it's way to dark I like it for my collection but this one need to be more red indeed :D 
    1985 G1 Transformers Decepticon Thrust
    Judging by the above link A+B mix would be right, right? ;)

    The was no burgundy in the text colours box available to me. Go with E, IMO, and then maybe lighten it up a bit.

    My personal recommendation (and this is just because I like this method) is a base coat of Mechrite Red (GW), with a Clear Red coat on top. Gives a dark-ish red, without being too brown-ish.

    Hmm... I only have REVELL paints to work with, but clear bright red on top of a darker red sounds like a good option, will have to test that :D

    Very nice, I like it a lot. It would even look good colored as a random new guy who vaguely resembles Thrust.

    Well there's your problem. :D 

    Anyways, i support Flashback's suggestion of painting it as a new random guy who vaguely resembles Thrust.
