    Heya all! Sometime ago I asked a good friend of mine (who's pretty seasoned in customising) whether he could help me paint my Swoop into more show accurate colours.

    Just recently, I finally got down to doing that, and he agreed to do it for free. I think he did a smashing job!! The blue's just the right shade, and it does not chip easily from regular transformation. Only thing is that it's a shame that he couldn't paint the claws and beak yellow/gold to match the show even more, but then you wouldn't wanna mess with 20 year old pins.

    Here're some pics

    Tell me what'cha think, and give him some love at HIS BLOG!

    Heh well you could ask him, though he's generally kinda busy. I'm returning to Boston pretty soon too, so I don't think I'd have much time to meet up with him either.
