    Classics Prime Jetpack - 90 % Done!

    So this project (will take a while to finish) was just started a few days ago. I've been seeing a lot of ROTF Jetfire / Prime customs on here, and had a junker Cyb Jetfire (the by product of my now abandoned G2 Dev) laying on the bench. So, while waiting for the latest round of paint to dry on TFA Kupp, I started tinkering with creating a jet pack for my Classics Prime. Here is what I have So Far - as always, CnC welcome!:

    EDIT: He's all primed up! I actually started on the main coat yesterday, but waiting until it's done before I take pics. Also not the hole I made for Optimus' wind vane / shield / gun.

    Hope you guys like, and I should have the first coat of black done in a few days, so look back for updates!!

    Edit #2: Black coat completed! on to details / nook n cranny work!

    #2 Main Black coat complete; test run on OP's back. The peg broke, so I have to try to re glue it

    Latest Pictures:

    dunno why these pic links don't show up properly, but there's the thumbs, and if you want, you can open the photos in new tabs by clicking on the weird pixely thing and selecting open in new tab! laters!

    EDIT - Finally figured out changing the header so people know I updated it ! WHOO!!!11ONE

    Jetfire! Noooooooooo!

    Just kidding :)  As a fellow basher, I know sacrifices sometimes must be made!

    Anyway, I like the look and the execution. I echo the questions of the above responders, and wonder if you will incorporate more parts into this add-on?

    UPDATE: Primer done. Will have painted pics up in the next couple of days. Using testors enamels for the first time as well.

    I can see why those that use enamels do: it sticks to everything, and gets everywhere lol.

    EDIT: Another update. The black coat is more or less finished. This is my first bash using testors enamels, so any suggestions concerning those, and the usual CNC would be GREATLY appreciated! Laters!

    Updated - Still a WIP, but about 90 % done i'd say. Just needs touch ups and clearcoat.
