    Here's my latest custom... I spent 7 hours Sunday night just prepping this jasper! Another hour on Monday to finish up the prep work and then start the putty phase. Lots of scratches, holes, and injection molding poop had to be put under control before priming and then the painting. By Wednesday night, I finished him up and listed him on Ebay. He was definitely a lot of work, but I thouroughly enjoyed every second of it :)

    Hey, nice job on that! I've done several of these seekers and I know they're not easy with all the prepping involved, but you did an awesome job, looks very clean! Cool background too!

    I used acrylic paint for the entire project with a combination of airbrush and hand-painting with sable brushes.

    Now, Skywarp is one of my top three favorite characters. I will be watching with a critical eye my friend. Just kidding, once again, totally awesome!

    Really beautifully put together! Is this an Acid Storm? If so mate, Bra-friggin'-vo!
