    Hello everyone first time posting, also first time modifying anything... A simple repaint of Acid Storm to Skywarp... Getting ready to repaint a few other seekers... I still have a few touch ups, just wanted to see what all you professional customizers think... Any suggestion appreciated...

    I have to agree with Kamtimus, your seeker looks boss! What kind of paint did you use?

    That's a super clean paint job, And a good starter pictures to boot. Do you think a silver stripe in the Alt mode on the front/rear wings might look cool?

    For a first time project, you hit it out the park. And, welcome to the Radicons.

    Sick job. Very crisp and no running are hard for a first timer.

    I was going to put the silver stripe, but I decided I wanted something a little different...

    Yup, I plan on Thundercracker next... I bought 6 Acid Storms so I can make the main seekers... I have Starscream, so I wanted to make Skywarp and Thundercracker... Also, was thinking of the rain makers... Thanks for all the compliments...

    Very nice I love my Skywarp standard figure but this purple definately looks like the original much more than the classics figure.

    I am assuming you went for more "standard" jet mode color wise than with crazy silver stripes and such.

    I may try to use the gun on wing in robot mode never seen that before.

    I hope you get to doing a Sunstorm as well, make him the crazy yellow and copper the Legends Sunstorm was, not the usual Moon Pie color.
