    Here's my before and after shot of the "Classics" Starscream mold I created Sunstorm out of and Special thanks to Youtubes "Maverikill" for the inspiration.

    personally would've thrown some white in there, but it's still awesome

    I know how you feel but for some reason that white cant seem to stay clean even with enamel. So I kept it yellow and orange.

    I may do a few minor touch ups with some white paint later if the mood hits me.

    looking real good man, love that orange

    the key with white, hand brushing, is to keep the paint thin and apply a really light coat, let dry, and apply another layer, and so forth. it's very tedious. applying it too thick will loose any detailing in the mold.

    bingo. It may be tedious but it's one of the best ways to get good results. I'd only use spray paint as a base coat and even then I'd steer clear of enamels. Did you prep the pieces at all with rubbing alcohol or hot soapy water?
