    It seems to be the most repainted TF of the entire line :) 

    However... I followed Timshinn73's steps, and separeted the toy into three main parts. Then I sprayed all with black primer. Then I sprayed with silver paint.
    After it dried, I assembled it again and added the details (bronze, dark silver, silver) and then a wash with black ink where needed.
    Then I corrected with silver again.
    I sealed it with matt transparent spray. Transformed, corrected again, and sealed again :)

    Nice! Only problem now is that the pink wings stick even more than before... >_<

    I see, I wanted to leave them as they are, but in truth they stick too much now :( 

    I want to paint them red, but to keep translucency I have to dye them, and I don't know how to dye.

    They make transluscent red (and other colors) spray paint. Testor's has some, as does Tamiya and a few others. Most likely though, you'll have to go to a dedicated model/train/RC type shop to find it.

    It's not a 'guide'. It's a post of a forum member that explained how he did the same thing.

    I've painted the pink wings with some acrylic clear red.

    Here the results:
