    Ok, I was looking through my collection the other day when I realised that my G1 starscream looks wrong. Why? Cos he's got no eyes! I refuse to put the stickers on for the eyes because a) they're not red and b) they look stupid and hard to put on from pics I have seen...

    So my question is this - How do I go about painting eyes on him? I've heard a lot about 'Gundam Markers' and 'Sharpies' being used for this kind of thing but I have no idea where to get them (Bear in mind I'm in the UK here). Or if they'll be good enough/fine tipped for what I need them for. I'd like to give G1 hound some blue eyes as well at some point, come to think of it..
    Anyways any help would be greatly appreciated!

    When I painted the eyes on my screamer I picked a testors model paint that I liked and used a toothpick to apply it. I also painted the rest of the face silver the same way. If I can get a clear pic I'll post it up.

    *edit*
    Here is a pic. It's still a little blurry (my next camera WILL have manual focus).
