Here is my take on RID Thundercracker. TC started as a Toys R Us exclusive Starscream. He was disassembled to be cleaned and primed prior to painting. I used Tamiya metallic paints to give Thundercracker a shiny new appearance, while trying to keep to the G1 aesthetic. He was finished off with a custom printed Decepticon symbol on his shoulder before several coats of clear for protection.
