    Seeing as Dreadwind and Darkwing have been two of my favorite characters since i was a kid, and i had an extra jetfire, i tried my hand at repainting him,

    i didn't want it exact to the botcon one so i did a few of my own spins on it, the inside of his visor has been colored red so it still shows through and looks clean from the outside, i wanted a decepticon logo on the nose, so i got one and thinly cut it so it would still split,

    maybe later i'll get the small head casted for him, final touches (including a black ink wash on the jet back to get rid of the red) it might also get a wound or color integrated powermaster like they have been bonded permanently, and clear-coating is coming tomorrow, i'm really happy how it turned out, comments and crits welcome

    Personally, If I was making this (I have a real one) I'd be omitting the fastpacks, as they're totally out of place on this character. But, that's just me.

    Good job there, that's the perfect grey! I've wanted to do a similar custom because the botcon one was missing colour around the shoulders and too "bright" for such a depressed character. Unfortunately I ended up getting the botcon version which is too expensive for me to be adding paint to :( . My idea was pretty similar but with redish-salmonish shoulder joints.. I like your sticker placement too.

    i was trying to figure out how to incorporate his red shoulder details, we'll see, that's a pretty good idea because it doesn't end up on the nose of the plane

    Superd job, especially the masking on the wings. One question, no panel lining?

    I must apologize, because I saw your post in the "Let's See Cool Stuff" and totally skimmed over it. I think your photo is cool there, but I totally thought it was the Botcon version. I'd say on the flip side of my goof, that's a good thing though :) 

    Great work buddy :thumb
