    Hi just started work on this Custom here. I´m planning on giving him a darker Design. I´m not sure yet wether to give him Tattoos or not i guess i´ll see that once ive added some darker paint onto the base coat.

    C&C are welcome :) 
    I´ll keep u updated ;)

    Keep up the good work. Although I don't hate the tattoo's ; I think this mold works better without them ; especially, the thigh legs look more 'solid' without the tattoos.

    Thanks for the ideas :) 

    Here we go the next WIP Pic. Used a metallic flake dark greyish paint on Starscream. The Tailfins are the first Parts ready:

    I´m still not 100% sure how to go on.

    There are three things i´m thinking about at the moment:

    1. flat black tattoo´s
    2. silver metallic tattoo´s
    3. no tattoo´s

    Wow!
    I like the metallic flakes in the grey paint! It really looks cool!

    And for your Question:
    Number 3 ;D
    No tattoos at all :eek: 
    They somehow donÄt fit Screamer very well.

    Oh thx. :)  Yeah i´m not to sure as i said i love the paint and i dont want to spoil it. I didn´t want to give him the original toy design tattoo´s i was more for the original RotF Design as they look way cooler ;)  I´ll best have a look once the jet is painted. I think i´ll post pics of it later on

    Here are the Pics as promised ;)  Quicker than i thought. I had to do some covering up on the light paint because some of it came of with the tape. Grrr.... Maybe i´ll have to repaint the light paint on the figure.

    Ive worked on a lil probe (Not on Starscream ;)  ) to check if the masking tape works fine for me and it did:

    I´ve now started to apply it onto the vehicle and will begin painting very soon.
