    Hello all. Been awhile hasn't it?

    Well I just spent the last week woopin' this Bad boy up.

    I wanted to try something new I noticed through mistakes. Dyed parts bleed through paint half the time when you apply paint details. First I dyed the hands black, sanded down the surface to leave dye in the cracks only, painted it purple and the dye bled through. Not only does it give it that nice shadow detail but it keeps me from having to paint the articulation in the bends and ball sockets for the fingers.

    Next time I'm ganna do the same effect to the other parts that get painted purple. I'm also ganna make a white version the second time around because although the Krylon Chrome looks nice it also streaks easy and you don't want crome to streak on a black surface.

    I'll show alt mode pics when all the paint detailing is done and paint touch ups have been made.

    For now. Enjoy.

    For some reason, he looks like a Skywarp-colored Starscream, than Skywarp, if that makes any sense.

    Survey says... nope. I'm just stupid.

    It's not that in your face magenta-ish purple most associate with Skywarp.

    I'm sure it'll turn out great. Nice touch on the paint over dye weathering. It's got that worn metal look, very cool looking. I never knew it did that. Then again, I've never used dye before.

    I'm sure that's simply the camera.

    Very cool. Could be the camera, but I would've gone a bit more towards the reddish-purple end of the purple scale - looks a bit blue. But I LOVE the cockpit color; it looks really rich. Would you mind giving a little info about painting ball joints? How much to sand, etc.?

    Frankly speaking, the G1 Skywarp's purple is very close to blue as well. On the other hand, the Classics Skywarp's purple is too close to fuschia. I'd say Universe Skywarp has the best shade of real purple

    The cockpit came out awesome! Did you remove it prior to dying, and if so, how? I'm scared of breaking mine.
