    Blustreak is one I have wanted for a while. HOPING maybe Takara would make it. But alas they did not. After seeing a couple custom Bluestreaks on here I decided to make my own. Its not perfect, issues on the black on the front grill, and I didn’t thin my blue paint out enough. But overall I am pleased with how it came out.

    Yeah, any problems you have had aren't showing up in the picture.

    This is inspiring.

    Oh gosh I love that blue. The vehicle mode is my favourite part, the finish on the blue that you achieved is just lovely, nice work hey.

    Thanks Brother. I went with Laquers on the body work instead of enamels. Gives it a better look in my opinion.

    A coat of Lacquer Clear Coat works. Normally I use an Auto Class High Gloss Top Coat. But was not sure how well it would work with the Lacquers, so I used Lacquer clear coat. I am a believer that is your going to paint the vehicle mode, give it a High Gloss finish :)
