    I can do some bot pictures.

    As far as How I painted it. I did the same set that I would of to paint cars. I was spraied with left over paint from my camaro.

    As far as how I did it. I used prep-all that removed the stickers and glue.
    then I used a 1000 grit sandpaper , and sand fixed. Then you have to wash all the pieces. Once they dried. I used tack cloth to removed the dirt from the pieces. Then I painted the gold/brass color. I let that dry over next then I masked off the wings ,and fins where I wanted the black to be. I waited a few hours then I spraied the clear coat on all the peices. I let that dry for 2 days before I put the peices back together.
    Then I used skywarp's ling missiles so I did not have to paint the ones I had here. If you need any help let me know ok

    Wow. That's an awesome color scheme. The dark orange and the black accents really make that seeker look distinctively different from the rest of them. Hell, I think I like the color scheme better than the other orange seeker, Sunstorm. Great work! Me likee.

    i plan on making a sunstorm but It will not be the same design as the e-hobby one. I hope to have it finish as soon as I get in the seeker parts that I won off ebay.
