    Completed masterpiece blazing Sunstorm

    Finally Finishing painting the rest of him. I added more orange but I don't think it really shows up in the pics. I decided though to part with him on Ebay. I am running out of space for my collection. *sigh*. Oh yeah tried that glue gun technique to make a fireball. Need to work on that technique still :) 

    Simple repaint of ghost starscream with clear yellow, red and orange. I am trying to go for a burning and glowing affect. I think the colors may be too uniform and was hoping for some feed back to break up the colors. Unfortunately I am limited to just clear colors such as red, yellow, orange blue and green. I was considering some silver as well. I don't think white would fit this style. Let me know what you guys think.
    Thanks.

    NEW PICS

    Well, as you already have silver and the dark grey on the head you could balance that out by adding splotes here and there on the mechanical parts..like the hydraulics on the legs, spots on the feet and arms. Also, creating different shades of and orange/red/yellow could break it up.. like a nice dark orange on the thighs and upper arms..

    Just my thoughts though. Looks cool now though.

    See, every time I go and buy a cool new TF, I see some one customize that same exact TF and make mine look so dang blah, lol. This is one of the sexiest Ghost MP Screamer custom jobs ever!

    I think the parts that are supposed to be white should have simply been left or made translucent. Other than that, I think it's aces :)

    I thought about keeping the white area clear but the problem was the forearms has that blue tint that I could not even get rid off with the paint. The yellow mutes it a little but still stands out. The only other place would stay clear then was the upper leg. I ended up going with Encline's idea. Will post when I have the chance.

    You could always put some LED in it to light it up. Looks good.
