    Check out the Video: YouTube - Human Alliance Sunstreaker Work In Progress (Pimp My TF!)


    It's an Ice Cream Paint Job!

    Since the commissioner was so happy with the paint so far, I thought I'd share it with you guys. I've been wanting to do a Sunstreaker for a bit, but I didin't want to go with the standard yellow, ya know?

    I grabbed an airbrush a while ago, and this is one of the first projects to get the airbrush treatment. It's a two tone paint job. There is a base of a deep orange, then top coat of Tamiya Gold Leaf ixed with Yellow inks. I love how the light plays with it.

    I added a white stripe with a nice silver border, and man is he sexy! I accidentally painted over the back widows, and now I'm unsure if I just paint in black for them or leave it as is. Help guys! Enjoy. :thumb

    Looking good. A white stripe by itself might have looked a bit bleh but the silver border really makes it work. The yellow looks great too.

    Leave as is, it's more distinguishable from sideswipe.

    Niiice. Sunstreaker can't be just yellow, he's gotta have some bling!
    About the back window, i'd paint it black. it looks too much like a concept car. I realize that it IS a concept car, but it stands out too much IMO.

    You should leave it. It looks super sleek! And vain sunstreaker loves his new painjob and wants to show off as much as he can.

    Can't wait to see the final products. I like the yellow and the white stripe. They are going good together.
