    Whats Happening TFworld, Its ya Boi from "Long Haul Creations" bringing you all my 1st custom creation from my new line.

    "PIC HEAVY"

    ****************

    I Decided to go with the mold that when i first heard about it, i had to RUSH to wal-mart to buy new boxers. Leader Class Starscream, One of my favorite, most bad ass Characters, a mold that was unbelievably 2nd best to the leaders. Prime would have to be my 1st (seeing how his mold Doesn't really require a lot of Modding).

    ****************

    Reason:
    I decided to do this custom because Starscream in both films had very little screen time, they made him look so bad ass but we never saw it, and so i took it upon my self to create my version of the way I think a Movie Starscream would be. EVEN though the mold was FAR superior to all of the Movie theme Seeker, it still had issues

    *Blah Blah Paint job
    *Brown Paint Apps?
    Etc.......

    One day my homie "Prowl4680" hit me up and asked if i wanted to go in on a Leader Starscream from TRU cause they split the price in 1/2 and its free shipping, i said ShiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiT! Mos Def bro, haha. So i patiently waited for the arrival of the Seekers Leader, so to bide my time i did as much research as i possibly could, and soaked up alot of Modding tips from my homies Hakka & Mikesgtrs1 (YouTube Mate), checked out ROTF CGI pics, F-22 ALT pics and looked over them day after day, Ask Wifey, No sleep lol.
    So i went to my local Freddie's and Hobby shop for paints, tools etc.., It was really difficult i special when it comes to knowing colors, so going to these stores, i had NO CLUE what colors to ask for, so i bought different shades Grays, Whites and Lots Blacks
    .

    ROUND 1:
    When It came down to doing the paint job, i had big plans, till i realized after painting the ENTIRE fig in a Gray, i thought would fit, turned out it was way too dark and didn't fit Starscream the way i wanted to.

    ROUND 2:
    So i went back to my Hobby store to find More colors and deciding to go with the F22 Raptor Aggressor, and thought to my self, yes now this will work. 1 coat 2 coats 3 coats 4, got REALLY close to finishing it and, it didn't look Good AT ALL!

    ROUND 3:
    At this point I'm going broke, losing sleep, fighting with my wife, not finding the colors or tools i need and I'm about to sell the damn thing as a Junker. Then i said F*ck it, and Decided to do this a way i felt comfortable. Like i said before i talked back and forth and back and forth with my man Hakka, and watching Mikesgtrs1 videos 24/7 every week to the point where i mimicked EVERY WORD my man spoke lol. So Here it is, The final destination of this rough flight, DRUMS PLEASE..........

    finally a saw! i would like to see a separate attachment for the saw, take the missile launcher part off and create something similar.

    but still looks fantastic!

    great touches on this dude. I like seeing the mods. The only thing I could suggest, is for the next go'round, instead of using a black base and dry brushing the jet, just use the gray and do a lighter shade on the edges dry brushed....
