    This is my first official kitbash, not just a straight-up repaint - Classics JAZZ!. This baby took me quite a while to finish. hope you like it bros. Big thanks to all Radicons who inspired me to do my take on Jazz - Frenzy_Rumble, sammc4, spoonman, nellie131, Jazzed & sculptbot. You guys ROCK!

    -the body was handpainted all throughout (thanks for the tips of all the radicons here)
    -thin coats+wetsand=awesome smooth paint app (haha, thanks radicons!)
    -the decals are stickers and were designed using photoshop.
    -the front end, head and crotch were sculpted using apoxy sculpt
    -the spoiler and shins were made from styrene sheets.

    I never get tired of seeing this custom, my only tiny suggestion would be a slightly bigger shoulder rocket. Nice work!!

    Very very cool! Another great rendition, i like the huge spoiler! How did you make the front end? Did you carve it from putty?

    Nice sig Payton.

    Sweet job man! I really dig the massive rear spoiler and remolded front end. Great work. Not sure if memory serves me correctly but it feels like this is the first time I've seen this custom with the chromed weapons, which is a nice G1ish look for him.

    I know some people like the turned around leg thing you did but I'm just not that into the look. Yours looks nice and all it's just the overall idea I don't care for even though I know it's more "G1" but not everything from G1 is perfect for me

    Cheers! on a job well done

    Thanks, it was made by another member here and reminiscent of my favorite movie scene (although I haven't seen him around in a while).

    If you're basing that on what I said, I was referring to the artwork in my sig being made by somebody else.

    Wow, yet another ridiculously sweet Jazz custom. I think this is the one of the best ever! Great job. Did you get the head before F_R stopped selling them or did you make it yourself? Either way, it looks great!

    thanks!



    you have to detach the shins in alt mode, coz the feet needs to fold inside it.

    I made the head myself from prowls head, actually it's my first head sculpt using apoxy sculpt, that is why it is uneven. hehe

    unfortunately, i only made one. lol
