    Some of you should remember my Starscream from a few months ago, and now here's Skywarp! This one's actually a commision job tho and, as nice as he looks next to Starscream, must unfortunately leave my shelf:) 

    Anyway, same head mod as Screamer, but without the smirk. Skywarp also lacks the foot thrusters, per request by the owner. The main color is Tamiya's Metallic Black, the stripes are Testors Grape Pearl over Silver, and the Gunmetal is a custom mix. The sidestripes are vinyl stripes painted the same as the main stripes.

    Here's a few more pics as well:

    And of course, a bot mode shot with Starscream:

    Thanks for looking...and next up, Alt Ramjet!

    I'll love to see a Thundercracker. I've always liked him more than skywarp, though I'm in the minority.

    Skywarp? He he, don't you mean Roadwarp? Exellent work. I love the ominus feel of a road seeker prowling the streets to kill an unsuspecting autobot, or a poor civilian caught in the middle of the transformer war.

    Super clean man! Just superb, as always. I love how you can get a seeker head out of the Mirage head. I can't help but be jealous of the guy you made this for.

    Really great paint job and design, but now I guess the question is when do we get to see Thundercracker?

    he's gorgeous, Jarrod. I would've rather the purple be a slightly more blue-ish hue, but it is still sharp!

    Honestly, whenever someone pays me to do him!

    Thanks! The purple is actually a bit darker in person, in fact it's nearly identical to MP Skywarp's purple.
