    Very nice. You managed to fix my biggest problem with Skywarp, the tone of the purple they used. Very nice work.

    Damn. Looking at those pics, Skywarp looks like a badass. Nice paint job all the way.

    That looks REALLY good. I love my Classics Skywarp, but I'll buy a Henkei version if they release one that is G1 accurate.

    I am amazed by your skywarp custom its much more anime accurate and i like the way purple is made on him. Any tips how to disassemble a tfc classics jet carefully without damaging the parts and how to paint the difficult parts ?

    Excellent work, I agree with the comment that this is a big improvement over the colour scheme on the official one - tho I thought it was pretty cool to begin with :)

    Thanks guys.
    Luckily i managed to get another Classics SS & Ramjet today,so i can actually finish this project.
    All i do is pull the legs of the ball joints,unscrew the arms at the shoulders & take them off & unscrew the cockpit so that the head can be removed.
    Everything is then undercoated with a spray acrylic primer (in skywarps case black)

    Cool repaint bro, I just need atleast 2 more screamers so that I can complete the 4 jets. I'm getting ready with my paint and a fellow TF fan prepared some paints as well.

    Great, well thanks for the pics on this thread we are trying to follow your color scheme. Once my friend finishes Thundercracker we will post it on this forum too. I tried a regular spray paint for the arms and legs of Starscream but the first attempt was a disaster. I still have to upload the pics of the damaged chest of starscream while removing paint from its chest.

    I am currently on hiatus from tf repaints due to my condition ( if some of you guys here are cigarette smokers gotta quit smoking now if you don't wanna suffer my fate ) My unfinished WIP is the VC Optimus Prime ( movie colors ) I have his gray parts repainted into gray and enhanced some of the red colors.
