    I took my discolored 'Universe' Smokescreen and tore him down, prepared it, primed it, and started on my way to make him more G1 accurate. So far this is what I have, still lots to do...

    UPDATE: Nearly complete with Smokescreen. I still have to add some detail lines and his autobot symbol and I'll be all done.

    Thanks Iron, this was a PITA because of many rub points but good preparation and time canceled them 'all' out. I only wish that were the case for all transformers.

    Pain in the A$$ (PITA). Good point about the rubs, it's gotta be done or your really can't sell a figure with a transforming promise (at least a few times that is).

    I am actually getting ready to paint a classics Prowl. He looks very cheap so I want to do to him what I did to Smokescreen and at the same time add some G1 accuracy to him. I am also contemplating a custom built Blitzwing. Other members have inspired me to think beyond painting and I have 2 figures in mind at the moment.

    Thanks Venksta, I just finished my Classics Prowl too. On Prowl though it wasn't a full repaint...more like 85%.
