Any Ideas?


You could paint his jet mode in the same scheme as the F-16 Fighting Falcons--light gray in the canopy, and dark grey on the rest of it:

After all, Starscream's alt mode WAS inspired by the F-16 anyways. The only problem would be the chest. It's supposed to be light gray or brushed metal in bot mode, and if you were to paint his jet mode in the F-16's color scheme, he'd have a dark gray chest instead.

Or perhaps you could use a lighter tone of gray on the darker parts, like in this pic:

Personally, the lighter color scheme on the pic above is what I'm planning to go with. It's a good balance between the color-accuracy of bot and jet mode.

So, sorry that the reply took so Long...and partly for what you are about to see. :D

I managed to create a rather nice Jetmode, albeit rather bland.
It is almost as if it is missing Stickers or something... the Pictures are as follows.

In one final attempt to "add colour" I painted the Jet engine...actually..i like this part the most in Jet mode.

Here you can see the Silver base I used on all the parts individually and then sponged over with thinned out matt black. Taking this figure appart and reconstructing it is....arduous at best. the Cockpit worked out well though.

Now i think the Cockpit Looks great but it is clear to see that it is missing SOMETHING...

Love what you did with the jet exhaust! Looks like it's actually...what's the word for it, "lit up?"

The metallic paint job looks great! What paints did you use for the silver and the black wash, BTW?

As for something missing, honestly, I think the most you could add are some red accents as seen on Starscream's CGI model. Other than that, this is pretty much a perfect TFP Screamer repaint.

I dont think anything is really missing. Its just, the Voyager mold has a million little added details that really stand out with a coat of paint, and what's more, alot of those details aren't accurate to the show, they were just added on the toy.

I think your repaint is excellent! The mold just makes you feel like you missed something.

Come read my Photocomic! It totally doesn't suck!

HAHAHHAHAHAHA! thought I posted a reply YESTERDAY! Turns out i shouldnot choak my laptop to death with the power button when it freezes...otherwise things like this happen.
Well thank you all for the love and IM IN THE CREATIVE ROUNDUP!!!! this inspires me to do more!!!!!

SKYWARPED_128: I used "Tamaka color PS12 Silver" as a base coat on all those difficult to take appart peices, then mixed Revell matt black with brush cleaner spirit (a clean brush is a happy brush) and buffed the surfaces with a washing up sponge full of the stuff. Googled it and I think its dry brushing...

BeastProwl: When you put it that way it does make sence. It does look like a nice Jet, I think it just looks a little less like a transformer :D oh well clashing neon colours next time. Do you think maybe airfix decals may be over the top?
