    Okay, this commission piece was downright fun. Started out as a modded Walmart Starscream. Did a military gradation and camo pattern on the top of the alt mode, and all the white parts are now gray. The robot parts retain their original reds and blues, but everything else has been painted. Also darkened the windscreen.
    The head from the new MP version was transplanted, which required a bit of shaving and cursing to make it fit. Works pretty well now.

    Now this is what I wish Starscream always looked like! The vehicle colors were so very close to real, he could have had a scene in G1 like in the '07 movie, blending in with other F-15s. Really like the gradient effect on the top of the jet. :thumb

    ^Same here.

    This is what the original MP-3 Starscream should've been: a realistic as possible jet with the colours that said jet is best known for. Sure, there are greenish F15''s in use, but the colours of the F15 are grey,

    Great to see this realised and looking as good as it does :thumb

    That is slick! The alt mode is perfect, and the bot mode is nicely simple.

    Yes, the original designer really dropped the ball on this one. Here is proof that it WAS possible to realise it in a way that didn't look awful.

    I really REALLY like this. I'm tempted to mask off my PP03 Screamer and do the same thing!
