    So, I’m back on my crap for another custom! A Starscream kit for half price made me grin, because it could not be that hard to paint… in theory. The neon green over blue was rough, but otherwise it came out solid!

    And him meeting my Thundercracker, who was also painted rather than stickered.

    And (why not) my Megatron and custom Cliffjumper.

    One really has to respect the absolute insanity of that color scheme, and I love the way you've interpreted it. Bravo!

    Well you've inspired me! Question: do the wings rotate so they can point down? Seems like Starscream would make a good base for a Pharma custom.

    You can install the wings upside down pretty easily, if you don't mind the pointy bits poking out over his head.

    You did this absolute mess of a color scheme justice.

    Great stuff!
