    Hey guys, got this finished up last week but due to a massive hard drive failure over the weekend I wasn't able to get some pics up for this til now.

    This is rts jazz repainted in the united stepper deco. Tried to get as close to theirs as possible, but subbed in a few paint apps in certain places. You can probably tell if you look at both side by side.

    This is my first custom so I just used some cheap paint pens/markers that my wife recommended because they coat plastic well. These were the elmers brand "painters" pens. Also this project was basically started trying not to spend the $120 united stepper will cost. Figure, paints, and sticker inkjet paper all included, I spent less then $25 on this.

    I redesigned all the labels myself and printed them out on sticker sheets that you can buy at any staples. They're not glossy but they do the job ok.

    Only issue I have with it is some tolerances are off now trying to get it back to vehicle mode. The paint adds a bit to the plastic and messes up certain areas (hood for me) from locking in properly. Gonna see if I can trim this down eventually so I can get some alt mode pics too. But for now, here ya go.

    Thanks guys, and yeah I'll be tinkering with the alt mode to see what needs to be done for a fix. I think it was mainly those 2 tabs that are on the hood/windshield back piece that plug into his legs. If I take an exacto and shave a bit off it should be fine, as I didn't have much of a problem transforming anything else.

    Very good for paint pens! The gold has come out very well too, and that's usually one of the trickier colours to get right.
