First custom post. As the title says. Obviously I'm not the person who originated this idea. All of the paints are spray paints that I had in the garage. I washed the figure in soapy water and allowed to dry. I took the limbs apart. Used rubbing alcohol for any oils from my skin and sprayed light coats. The torso I used a fine brush. I made a little puddle on a piece of wood with the spray paint and just dipped the brush. I still need to do the purple accents on the wings. Maybe I will distress him but I am not sure. I'd like to get some water slides for the faction symbol. Anyone know a good source? I liked the more G1 purple shoulder and guns approach. Guns not shown. I will be sanding the handles of the guns and then painting the handles again so I have less rub. If I take enough plastic off it should work. I also have some battlemasters I'll be painting to go along with him. Waiting to transform him until the paint is super cured. The only reason I put him together is because I was worried the kids would get into the parts tray and lose something. Update It was a little tight with transformation so I was careful not to force anything. Added the purple highlights with a brush. I have some black touch ups to do. Initially I was hoping to reposition the wings and hit it with spray paint again. You can see I have some orange peel starting on one wing where so I am just going to use a brush. I ran out of silver so you can see its a little thin on one side. I've decided to highlight panels, dry brush/ weather in order to tone down parts that stick out. Thanks for all the encouragement. I will keep updating.
