Exclamation DotM Amazon Jetwing Optimus Prime

Shortly before my company went into its two week long shutdown for Christmas and New Year's, my Jetwing Prime arrived from Amazon! I decided to spend the time off working pretty much exclusively on him, taking a vacation from my other projects.

There's a lot more painting and chroming to do, but I've done most of the mods that I did to my original RotF leader Prime, including:
- savio-prime's shoulder mod
- Fakebusker83's Shapeway hands
- Added Lego piece to shoulder tanks
- Added new Reprolabels. Last time I had already done a lot of chroming before applying the stickers, so I left a lot off. This time I decided to do the stickers first because they're usually less wrinkly. I'll probably replace some of them with Chrome Foil later on...
- Chromed the smokestacks. Last time I did it with antenna pieces. They were hard for me to find before, so this time I decided instead to use a drinking straw from a restaurant. I cut it to the right shape and size, covered them with Chrome Foil, and glued them on the stock stacks.
- I wanted him to be able to use the removable swords from my other Optimus, so I also made some connectors out of Legos and spare toy pieces. These still need a little work as well...
- The sword and axe are from UFO. I ordered the transparent orange axe and painted it so it would kind of have the glowing effect like in the movie. If I ever get an airbrush I'll probably redo it...
- Added cast parts from DMK-01, replacing the rear view mirrors and shoulder tank Lego pieces: Post #12
Comments and questions welcomed! Thanks!

Yes, and I didn't do a very good job. I put them on first and then cut where the tank lines were. It's hard, at least for me, to cut through stickers with a knife. The edges are all jagged and tend to peel. Those are some of the stickers I definitely plan to replace with chrome foil later on...
