    I've had this guy planned for a few months now, just waiting to hear official word on which version was gonna be released for Tokyo Toy Show. I started painting very shortly after it was finally official that version was going to be Silverstreak.

    Anyway, pretty straightforward repaint of MP Streak, with Reprolabels added at buyer's request. Paints used were: Tamiya Metallic Blue, Gloss Aluminum, Gloss White, and Semi-Gloss Black. Car parts were then given a nice coat of Future for that nice, glossy finish!

    Amazing work as always! I might have to get this done for myself if we don't see anything Bluestreak down the pipeline in the next year :)

    This is amazing. What did you use for the faction symbol on the hood? (Even on your MP-18S it looks so flat and perfect!) Did you go over the symbol with the clear coat? I can't see any sticker outline

    I used a custom made waterslide decal printed on clear film for Bluestreak. And yep, the clear coat was applied after the decal was applied. The sticker on Silverstreak is one of those newer Ocean dry-transfer styled ones that I got off of AliExpress.
