    Well, he says it's black, so Tailwind seems unlikely.
    Frankly, I think one of the Rattler customs (like Boggs') would serve as a fine Tailwind.

    Hm hm... if its a 'Bot I'd say Gunrunner, if its a Con then Whisper? Both were black jets, if you're trying for a G1 character.

    Either way, look forward to seeing whatcha do. The Powerglide figure has alot of potential for customs

    That is some serious black! I mean that is like black black, like midnight black! Very menacing, he looks like a shadow even when he's up front! Canopy is aces too! It's weird, he needs detail, but he kinda doesn't at the same time!:thumbs2:

    Bump. I'm sick of this guy, so he's done. Hard to tell from the pics, but he is actually dark gray with some gray, brown, tan and orange details. I gotta figure out a better way to take pictures. Let me know what you think.

    Turned out great!! The highlights are subtle enough to enhance the dark, foreboding nature of him, but visible enough to enhance the details!! Classic example of less is more!! Bravo!:thumbs2:

    OH! and a question for repainters/bashers: Does anyone have a good online source for aircraft decals? I ordered a pack of misc decals without realizing most of them were black! I wanted some basic white stars and air force symbols.

    Also what scale would you think this Powerglide mold is? Thanks...
