    Classics Thundercracker from Generations Thundercracker!

    Lots of careful paint stripping plus thighs from generations Dirge and a nosecone from classics Starscream. A G1 style silver chest and hand brushed Testors gloss yellow finishes the job. Please leave your thoughts!

    If I can find that white Universe 2.0 Starscream for much cheaper than 50 bucks, I wouldn't pass up the oppurtunity! But I like that the Classics Starscream was meant to evoke the F-15 prototype, so it's still plausible.

    I had a similar idea of using the Blue Angels. It'll be an Autobot called Skystriker. Still this custom is very cool.

    Excellent color scheme. The pilots on that team are absurdly skilled.

    The best way to do skywarp as a real jet would have to be completely flat black, with the purple only present in bot mode. As a stealth jet, he'd be better fit for night missions when he'll be undetectable. That, plus his teleport ability, would make him unstoppable!

    During the day, however, I'd probably go with something like this, but with the colors swaped, so that black dominates the pallete.
