    I want to do a custom wing job on Classics Starscream, but I don't know how to go about doing so. What Im going for is this.

    I just dont know how to do so. I was thinking of getting some sculpity and using that to modify the existing wings. Any suggestions

    Cool idea. You could mod up some Cybertron Thundercracker wings for it. I can't think of anything else that you could use. I can't wait to see what this will look like when done. Also, what colors are you planning on using for it? Peace out.

    Sculpey is too brittle to make good wings without a good base frame, and even then, they'd likely be quite fragile.

    Here are the latest updates on Skyburn. I took Armada Thrusts wings and attached them to Classics Starscreams wings. I still need to do some filling and snading but so far, so good.

    Sweet. That's what I thought. Thrust's wings look like they work really well for that.

    Looks good, I like it. Starscream's head looks kinda wierd, I gotta admit... but that's not your fault.

    Looks awesome...I love the basic Seeker design, and I love to see little variations on it.
