    I would call this a commission, as a buddy asked me to paint up a custom Sunstorm on the DOTM SC Deluxe, For a trade.

    I didnt know much about Sunstorm Going into it, except from playing ROTF 360, and pics online. I did a ton of research, loved some of the customs I seen with sculpted flames and bright oranges, Though I decided to go a more stock route, like something you might have seen in one of the movies.

    Made the decals, They worked out good. Made some custom "Sunstorm" Logos for the Vert Stabs like a real fighter jet, Its soppossed to be a sun with meteors in front..Pretty small, but turned out cool.

    I experimented with different lights and I got some different effects..I am by no means a camara guy.

    Oh boy this is nice. Very clean execution of paint apps. Jetmode somehow has a late 70's vibe about it imo.

    Thanks everybody!

    I actually ran off purple, decep symbols, with white backing. I noticed it in a lot of sunstorm pics, but in the end I couldnt put em on because the purple and oranges just did not look nice together, it was more my colors choices that didn't work together.

    Man, this is some really nice work here!!...

    I love the custom insignia you made for Sunstorm there...that's a real unique, and nice touch you added, and modding the stock weapons like that?....perfect!!....WAY better than what comes with these deluxe Seekers.

    Paint work looks awesome man. The color choices are spot on IMO. I loving the finished product.

    I'm sure any Seeker Fan would love to have this dude in his collection.

    Pics do not do this guy justice. After seeing him in person, and having him in hand, so many little details and things pop out and catch the eye that the pictures cant capture.

    Again man, fantastic work on this guy!!
