    I used Krylon Original Chrome. It may look nice but it streaks like a bitch with the slightest scrape.

    I'm just ganna use the stickers that came with it except for the wing stripes.

    I'm going to go with the more thick G1 Sticker look then the cartoon's animated thin line design. It'll be painted on later today.

    Well, if you read my first post then you would know I dyded them black to get around that. My first post gives a good accurate discription of what I did to get the hand to look the way it does.

    Did you dye all the black parts like the wings and everything? I have not tried any dying myself but that does look great.

    Couple of questions.....how do you feel about the gloss? One of my preferances with painting toys is trying to get them to look as much like a 'toy' as possible and find that most paints are just too damn glossy. Second question....why paint the shoulders? I am only currious as to why that is done. Is it from the G1 cartoon? I don't recall ever seeing the shoulders the same colour as the forarms. Third question.....did you paint the nose? I painted the nose on my first Skywarp figure because it was like that with the toy but i don't think it was ever like that in the show.

    Great work none the less. Love how it turned out. Just makes me want to do another one so very bad.

    Yes, it is. Skywarp was unique among the original 3 seekers that way.
