    When I got home with this awesome new figure, I came to Radicons and saw that Cheetimus had already done an excellent show accurate version so I went for something slightly different.
    This is Voyager Starscream in multiple metallic shades from chrome to metallic black with a mix of realism and show accuracy in mind. The steel color I used is a bit lighter than the show. Both flat and gloss protective coats were used in different masked off areas. I wanted the jet mode to have a more uniform color look rather than the slightly more pronounced shades in the promo jet mode shot I found.

    He is on ebay now.
    Thanks for looking and I hope ya like!

    Thanks guys! I was worried the gritty realism I was going for with the colors and paint style wouldn't go over as well as a fully screen accurate cleaner paint job. I wanted to do something just a little different though.

    Really nice - even if you weren't aiming for show accuracy - you practically nailed it...

    Oh thanks for that compare. I got tired of searching the shows for a clear shot of Screamer in jet mode and just used the promo pic. Glad it was close.

    I made a screenshot while trying to check myself - didn't even know if we had a screenshot in the Gallery here...
