    hiya!

    i just got the guy right? and ive been studying the backpack assembly.

    y'see, what bugged me when i saw the figure early on was the backpack design. i always liked how skyfires was coupled together and i thought it made it unique from the bandai mold derivative.

    classics JF backpack seems to comprise of separate assembly/parts for the connector and boosters. i'm thinking its possible to modify em so theyre close together and remove the connector/centre piece altogether.

    (i also dont like the big prominent wings, but i cant see a way around it to make it more cartoon accurate than it already is, swung up)

    btw, heres the link to that comprehensive gallery of JF.

    I had an idea similar to that, but I would scratch build it myself witht he help of some parts from a second Jetfire to make him more of a Skyfire. Nice idea, and I can't wait to see some pics of it. Are you going to add some details to the boosters with paint? Peace out.

    If you can pull it off, then HELL YES. Also agree on the protruding wing issue.

    now that i look at it, doesnt make much of a dif. theres these 2 rods on the inside of the boosters i'd have to cut to make it coupled closer.

    I think It looks better closer. It gives him more of a G1 feel. Nice job. I want one just like it.

    I'm on a kit bash/ mod kick lately, but i cant bring myself to cut up my toys. I would rather build something from styrene. which I'm more then likely going to do.

    Your mod is interesting. you can always buy another Jetfire if you dont like what youve done to this one.

    same here. maybe i'll wait when he's saturated the market before doing this.

    i'm thinking it requires 2 things:
    - cutting of the rods that connect it to the centre piece.
    - cutting of the tabs that lock him onto the robot from the centre piece, glue it to the boosters.

    itd be a waste to throw away the centre piece tho. its nicely detailed.
