    Took advantage of Shapeways Holidays discounts and got myselft a FUD Star Saber from creator "Citoria". Im a fan of the sword Optimus used in the show, specially when it was in power up mode. So I decided to paint the Star Saber using FUD material from shapeways and painting it with transparent blue to create the glowing transparent effect. First time painting so, it may not be perfect, but i tried.

    Thanks everyone for your positive comments, im glad everyone likes it. It was really nerve racking paiting it since ive never painted in my life and I had only one shot at doing this, plus the fact that it wasent cheap even with the holiday discounts, FUD is expensive thats for sure.

    Citoria, I use testors clear blue, flat yellow and metallic silver. Also I can't thank you enough for creating this wonderfull masterpiece, its a privilage being able to have one.
