    Sky Shadow was a lot of fun to custom. I love painting small details, and this figure has tons of them, mostly on his wings, forearms and legs, so highlighting them with silver and gold was a real pleasure for me.
    The bigger surfaces like his upper legs, upper arms and the inside of his lower arms were spray-painted in silver, which is a lot less time-consuming than painting, even with taking the pieces apart and putting them back together afterwards.
    The tank treads took me the longest, but I am glad I did them, even though you cannot really see them in tank mode, and just from behind in robot mode. Also the small machine gun, that I painted black, is unfortunately hidden when he is transformed.
    The final step then was to remove the stickers, and replace them with not so shiny decepticon symbols from toyhax.

    I know he is not as popular as Overlord, but I think I brought him one step closer to the spotlight of my shelf^^
