    I saw this amazing head over on shapeways and 3d printing turn out amazing. Really great to see it from fellow Radicons member (Tecrom Designs) great guy and designer for his amazing head.

    Now on to the show: I started using Tempest set for Arcee RID into Chromia. I could not just paint the head I had to go full blown and do the whole body. She is mix of G1/classic and TFP. I done my typical standard for repaint. clean the figures and prime it. and then paint the color scheme.

    thank you all for stopping by and comments.

    I just saw this little honey on ebay. Nice paint and head sculpt. Definitely gonna try and get her. Did you have mod anything to make the head fit in her alt mode?

    I forgot to ask what shade of blue did you use on the overall figure? I have my Temptest head on the way and want to get it to match (although it looks like you went over all her blue parts with the same paint) Just curious. She came out very nice! :)
