    Like Skywarp, this was a commision I took after I posted my Alt Starscream. Pretty much the same as all the rest, basic repaint with a heavily modified head. The head, btw, is based off of Ramjet's IDW Spotlight art.

    I've decided that Ramjet looks better with the doors in the official transformation pattern than spread out like wings this time.

    The white paint is Tamiya's Pearl White(which unfortunately appears to be just plain white in the pics), other colors are Testor's Gull Grey, Gloss Black, and a custom maroon mix. The side stripes are once again custom decals.

    Thanks for looking!

    Aww, man. I love your Alts, Jarrod. I thought it didn't get any better with Starscream, then you pull out this one! Amazing, great work.

    Unlike your other seeker GTs I absolutley hate this. Just playing, great work as always. I'm thinking a group shot would be awesome if you do the whole set but I'm guessing the buyer of these beautiful customs already has a few of them in his/her hand

    Another excellent custom sir, digging the head on this one. The colours work really well in car mode too.

    The head stays on. The colours just seem to give it so much more menace than Mirage ever could
