    I just finished the leg mods on all three, and thought I'd post a few pics. I know some people prefer to remove the hip kibble entirely, but I prefer this look :)  All the Decepticon symbols are from Repolables.

    Skywarp
    I added the wing markings, and repainted portions of him to give a more G1 feel. I wanted to repaint his forarms the same purple I used elsewhere, but had a problem disassembling them and decided not to bother. I messed up a little on the tailfins--I meant to take the stripe all the way up to the top.

    Thundercracker
    The same one I did last June, but I've added the silver shoulder stripes. I was amazed at how much they added to him! I'd really like to see this one in the gallery, Redline...he's much better than the first one I did. Can I assemble some pics and PM the links to them?

    Starscream
    I repainted his torso completely, and added the shoulder, wrist, and other markings. The ones on his chest didn't turn out well...I used some cheap white paint I had lying around, and it flaked (weird that it did that, since it was lacquer or lacquer).

    Laser Core Extinguished
    This is what would have happened if Skywarp had just teleported behind Prime and popped him in the head, instead of just firing a missile ;)

    So freakin' sweet. I really hope Takara put outs a TC, actually I hope Hasbro does it cuz it would be cheaper to buy. Great work!

    Man, that Thundercracker is BEAUTIFUL. Like stated before, I hope they release one that looks close to yours. Awesome job on all of them!

    Edit: BTW, what color blue did you use for TC? I'd like to use it or something similar for my Classics TC. Thanks.

    Glad you like 'em guys.
    TC had 2 blues: Tamiya TS-54 (Light metallic blue) covers most of him, and the detail work is Tamiya TS-50 (Mica blue). I top-coated with a Rustoleum high-gloss lacquer.
