    Woah its been a while! ive had a busy year (and still another year left) thanks to my work, but either way ive been seeing pretty much all the excelent kitbashes and repaints over the months :) 

    Anyway, this is my take on Movie Starscream, repainted and with custom hands. I tried to stay as close as possible to the film look, but it was hard to find good pics for reference. Other than th movie, i used the few stock pics available, the low res design sketches and the Game itself. For the hands, i used some KO Gundam and a zoid for the thumb. Unlike the movie, these hands doesnt have two thumbs, but prefer it that way, also they doesnt have articulated fingers

    EDIT: Proper pics now

    I like those hands, nice job. Hard to tell on the paint, pics are blurry and too bright to really see detail.

    What i used was silver spray paint as base, later made a custom gray with acrilic silver and some black, to make a custom wash, finally used black for the rest of details (mainly where heat would burn the fusselage on a real plane, like nosecone and front of wings and tailfins). For the little details i used gundam markers

    I hope to get better pics later

    Personally, I think it's a bit too shiny. The details, on the other hand, look nicely done :thumb .

    Nice. Im working on one of these as well which is kinda funny. Still i can at least see what mine is going to look like before i finish it and everything seems to work well paint wise so hopefully mine will look just as good.

    (one gripe i do have though is the silver is way too shiny)

    MUCH better pics - the others I thought I was seeing some purple tint to SS, but I knew that couldn't be right.

    Great job.

    *L* that's not really surprising :p  not just yet, but sooon. I'm almost ready to stick my Menasor up on the shelf with the rest of my Classics, and then I have him, and the upcoming board project Real Gear Boombox and a Cyb Skywarp to do for someone too. But those won't take long :)  I assume you're going to be in on the board project boombox?
