    making him cartoon accurate =)

    EDIT: I've added a snapshot of starscreams improving jet mode, the missles are temporary till I find better ones, I've made him the proper platnium color like the cartoon so its still matallic and shimmers like metal but isn't reflective =D

    Looks great!

    I too colored his head crest red. It just didn't look right being gray. Maybe I should color his missiles as well.........

    It's a little harder than it looks though, especially if you wanna only paint the actual missiles (and not the pod). I did a horrible job on mine & basically regret not being better prepared.

    Thanks for the warning. :) 

    By the way, did you use acrylics or enamels? It may be salvageable; I've had my fair share of paint mishaps and quite frankly, actually spent more time fixing the problem than actually painting. :eek:
