    I'm finishing up my MP Thundercracker. Next I'm gonna repaint Starscream with the correct G1 colors (The white SUCKS!!! He looks like an American flag.) Then when I get the money I'm buying another MP screamer & I'm making Sunstorm.

    Nope, I used 2 stickers from MP Skywarp & the rest are Zoids stickers. And the stripes are pinstripes from Autozone.

    How typical! Right after I post the thread Photobucket says they're doing maintenance. :( 

    Check back later, the pics should work eventually.

    Thanks everybody! This is my best work so far. I wasn't sure I could pull it off, I was afraid I'd end up destroying another MP screamer. :confused2 


    The missiles are from a Gundam transport that was out a few years ago. Here, found one:

    I combined the missiles with some Zoids Blox parts.

    Sunstorm is gonna be tricky. I use Dupli-color auto spray paint (Ultramarine blue for Thundercracker). That stuff is beyond awesome on plastic. Goes on really thin & it doesn't scratch off easily. But since it's auto paint, the colors are limited. Finding a good orange is gonna be a pain. I don't wanna use the normal spray paints like Krylon cuz it goes on too thick.

    There is a great Testor's Model Master gold flake paint that looks great. It's an enamel, not acrylic, but it they have worked really well in my past projects.

    Whatever you go for, I'm sure it will look as clean as Thundercracker.
