I'm new here and thought by way of introduction I'd make a thread for a repaint I've decided to do. I used to paint a lot of models so I thought this might not be too difficult for me. I don't have a lot of spare time right now so it might take me a while, but I figure this will be more fun and less expensive than trying to get a Henkei or Botcon Thundercracker. I decided to go with repainting a Universe 'Classics 2.0' Starscream as I thought the white-ish plastic used in the figure would be easier to paint than the green on an Acid Storm. For anyone thinking of doing this, note the engine nozziles are not molded in gray plastic. I was pretty surprised when it started coming off to reveal blue plastic underneath. Also for some reason the silver on the tailfins came off easily but the silver on the wings (as you can see in the picture) didn't. Thankfully the parts done in blue plastic (feet, engine nozzles and forearms/hands) are going to be painted black, which should be easy enough. The rest is white plastic and will be painted in blue, black (tailfins and the spot on the legs) and a light grey. I want to do something other than the curved red/silver lines on the wings - I figured some lightning bolts would look nice alongside classic Starscream and Skywarp's paint jobs. Also, thank you anovassin for the tutorial video on how to remove pins. I've just started on it yesterday. As you can see from the one attached picture, I've only (mostly) stripped the paint from the figure. My next two steps are 1) to paint the blue plastic pieces to black, though I'm trying to figure if there's a way to safely remove the engine nozzles from the tailfins first and then 2) to paint the rest of the legs. [update, Oct 12] Well, I've got the limbs and cockpit/chest painted, as you can see. The main body and wings remain. Putting the pins back in place was a real pain in the rear! Not sure how to tackle the body yet, honestly I'm starting to think I'd be better off dying all of the parts as it is.
