    Been tinkering around with this guy for a little over a month. He's been curing for about 2 weeks now, mainly becuase I forgot about him after I finished, while being wrapped up in comission work.

    He's been base coated with Krylon fusion, then airbrushed in various shades of Testors Model Master enamels. I did a little drybrushing here and there, still experimenting with it so I didnt want to go overboard. I even did a little bit on the eyes to make them sorta "glow". Just listed him on ebay as well.

    You my friend have great skill at painting.
    Looks like plastic. I really respect the fact that you allowed the paint time to cure.
    I think everyone that has ever made a custom is so anxious to assemble and see the finished product that they really don't take the time to let the paint dry completely.
    This is a great example of a professional paint job:thumbs2:

    That's the best Sunstorm I've ever seen. You painted the stripes? Wow. Very impressive.

    Which seeker did you start with?

    Thank you guys, yup, stripes are painted. I got a lot of practice masking Revoltech Seeker stripes, when you get to the big ones like this, it's much easier. I use the Tamiya masking tapes, you get a clean, straight line everytime.

    And K.B., he started as MP Skywarp, I got almost a dozen of them a few months back.

    He really looks great. Once again you have done an amazing job. I really love those stripes. I may have to commission some of these MP Seekers someday.

    That looks awesome - he almost looks like he's glowing! This mold is a biatch to paint with all the rubbing parts but it looks really clean - that pesky hinge that allows the wings to fold up in robot mode is the worst.

    Thanks!

    Thanks, yeah that hinge is a pain. Probably the only thing on the whole figure that I saw any chipping on. I even hit it with sandpaper, I'm guessing it just doesnt like paint.
