    This is going to my first of many posts here. I have been making TF customs since the launch of the Classics line but i haven't documented them, until now! To premiere my customs show off threads is one of my favorites and easily one the most time intensive TF custom i have done yet. My inspiration here was Top Gun and the Beloved F-14. I love the way the black tails fins and cockpit looked so incorporated them into the Jetfire's classic look. Sorry if the pics are little blurry. I have a tripod incoming from a friend.

    I've been thinking of painting one up like Skull 01 from Robotech Macross series. :)

    Sweet. If you have the motivation and skill, may I suggest detailing Skyfire's head (take your pick) to resemble Maverick's helmet:

    Very tasty. I was actually thinking that at first glance, this reminded me of the Macross version. I'm not really that familiar with Top Gun (I think I've only seen it once, years ago), so I wouldn't know if you hadn't said what it was based on. I do quite like JAFO's idea of furthering the homage by tiger-striping the helmet. And also Max Primal's of repainting the thruster addons etc. in black - maybe also with some of that tiger-striping. I think it'd flow a lot better than the red and fit in with the colourscheme.

    Very nicely done.
    My only compliant, is that the jetpack stands out to much (imo).
    Other then that, it's sweet.
    I look forward to seeing more of your work.
