    Hi! I have been sort of "lurking" around the forum for some times & am amazed & facinated by all the fine custom Kitbashes going on here. Finally plucked my courage to start my first post. Here are my 3 repaint Classic jet in their G1 colours. Starscream & Thundercracker are painted fm the Starscream Classic line while Skywarp is fm the twin pack U.Magnus/Skywarp line. All the jets are painted using Tamiya acrylic paint & lacquer spray can. Prior to painting, all wears & tears fm moving parts & joints have to be taken care of first. Dark brown artist oil is used for the panel lines & slight weatherings. All jets are given a final light coat of clear flat to give that realistic modern jet looks. Decepticon symbols are fm Reprolabels. The oversized bulky null ray guns are replaced by the sleek looking resin-made purchased fm Marksprojects. Thank Mark!

    Skywarp taking double shot. Skywarp is considered the simplest & less conplicated to do. No worry about wears & tears as the the toy is molded in black plastic. All I have to do is to replace the bright purple colour with the dark purple, closer to G1 look.
