    To start off, I just wanna say that Screecher is an amazing figure, and in my opinion, well worth the money to get. However, after I looked at him after a while, I decided that his arms and guns seemed a little dull. After I looked up the HoS picture of Starscream, I decided to try my hand at adding a little detail to Screecher. Keep in mind, this is the first time I have ever done anything to any figure, much less an expensive, third party TF. I am very pleased with how it turned out. I used testers gold enamel paint and a tiny, fine tipped brush. The parts I painted are the upper arms, the rivets on the shoulders and the guns, the front of the nose cone on the chest, and a couple of sections on the weapons. Three coats of paint later, this is the end result.

    I finally received Warper and Stormer from TFsource last Monday, and after I took them out of their boxes, I knew they needed a little work, there was simply to much silver on their torsos, and again, the weapons seemed bland, especially Warper's. Once again, I grabbed some paint and my little brush and went to work.

    the only thing that is off with the figure is the blue, they use a more dull one. Other then that looks great nice detail.

    While I agree about the blue being too bright, I think what you've done so far is awesome!

    But what about the propellers?

    I felt that painting the propellers gold would make them look kinda tacky, I like the fact that they are black. And as for the blue, I think that it may be due to the lighting from when the picture was taken, because it looks fine to me. I have no intention, at least at this point, of of painting this figure any further than the few gold parts that I have already done, knowing my luck it would come out looking awful.
