    My first dye attempt wasn't as successful as I hoped, but I'm thinking of working with the results. I didn't use acetone in this attempt, and as you can see the dye only took to certain areas. The wings & tail-fins don't even look like they were ever in the dye batch. It will eventually become Sunstorm version 2 for me. I hope to show the finished "Lucky Draw" Sunstorm soon.

    Also here's a little bit clearer pic of my Thundercracker & "true-blue"Streak. I still haven't added logos & stripes to Thundercracker yet but will one day. Also a sneak peek at other projects.

    yeah the wings are exceptionally hard to dye, they're unfortunately a VERY dense plastic.
