    Sounds promising. how about showing some pics? Ill be sending him the stuff on Saturday. so far the new seeker looks promising. The semi-gloss that RedLine has recommended has proven to be PEEEEERFECT for the aircraft metal sheen Ive been trying to nail...

    that..... sounds... kinky... lol, I just wish the details in my parts could have been kept in some of the parts. and unfortunately, not sure if it was from poor handling at one point or anoter, or the chrmoe simpley didnt adhere, but it chipped away on a part on one of the stacks... Theres going to be some sanding and fitting involved, but thats to be slightly expected. out side of the minor flaws, the parts look awesome, they really do. and inexpensive to have done as well :)

    these picture dont show as well as they would in person, but the glow is fantastic when in full-glow potential. As for everything else, been working on 2 other customs, ROTF Ultra Magnus and HA CliffJumper, so little progress has been made with this guy. **NEW NAME** = Seeker = including a bio of who Starscream REALLY idolized.

    nah, actually I think i should've gone with black a long time ago. looks good so far. will show pics when the paint cures, then add with Gloss Black, then coat it with Gloss coat.

    Added more Semi-Gloss clear-coating. I highly recommend Testor's Semi-Gloss 3.0 Oz. Spray for air-craft likeness on transformers, unless doing an F-22 Raptor, which are VERY shiny and beautiful. Here's a not so good pic taken recently.

    It looks like you've done an excellent job painting him up all clean and smooth.

    thanks man. almost getting there. just waiting on the tail-fins, color that, assemble it, and done!
    yeah heh He must have like 5 coats of Gunship Gray and has 2-3 coats of Semi-Gloss clear coat. feels great on the hand, rather than that unprotected feel of the enamel paint.
