    Hey guys.... posted this at tfans too, but figured I'd post here also since this is where I posted my energon ravage many years ago :) 

    So anyway, I repainted a thundercracker (yes I know Hasbro is going to release Titanium Starscream... made the plan b4 that info was out).... I used brushed on testors and tamiya acrylics. All flat and muted to give it a nice dramatic effect. I'm satisfied with how it turned out. May post some closeups later on (my camera is from 2000 and leaves much to be desired as far as image quality).

    Thanks for looking!

    Looks good. He might look cool with some panel lining, I'm a big fan of panel lining my stuff. But he looks good regardless.

    Thanks a lot for the compliments guys :)  Someone else mentioned panel lining too.... I just might try some on the underside to get a feel for how it would look. The picture is pretty bright though, in regular light the grey lets the lines show through pretty well on their own.

    I just have to decide if I'm going to do a Skywarp now :)  Well, more like how I'm going to find time to do one!

    you did an excellent job, but I think it shows there shouldn't be a SS repaint of this mold.

    Panel lining helps to hide actual transformation seems as well as adding some much needed detail to the toy, making it less "toy-like".
