    Finished prepping my Sunstreaker for decals. Cleaned up the masking lines around the windshield a little bit, needs one more pass with alcohol wipe. Three coats Tamiya yellow, one coat yellow clear and one coat gloss clear.

    Nice! This is exactly what I want to do if I find a Sunstreaker. What did you use for the spoiler?

    This looks amazing! And that spoiler looks like the one that comes in that new upgrade kit for SS. So Cool DIY is what it’s listed as in eBay.

    are you going to leave it in alt mode?

    I've painted a couple Siege Thundercrackers, and the paint would rub off at the moving joints when transformed.

    Y’all guessed correctly in the “So Cool” Spoiler. I only painted the alt mode on this figure due to my displaying being all alt mode. Having less painted plastic in robot mode is nice for actually playing with the toy (I do). If you must do a full repaint, mask off all the joints prior or disassemble the entire figure and sand them slightly. Forgoing paint on a few surfaces which see friction only preserves the hard work you already put in.

    One color is a nicer look on the vain one.
    Great work!

    Yup, I noticed the labels went up on the website just as my fingers were itching my air brush. Should be here next week, but I’ll be out of town.
