    Here he is. I tried to keep it pretty "Thundercracker" without being exactly G1.

    And there he is above with my Classics Starscream.
    I just couldn't bring myself to do a deep blue jet. Seems like a silly jet color. So I made him a little bluer/darker than Starscream. Besides, I think the gray wings look awesome on the 'bot. :)

    Paint work looks great. But I would have preferred the silly jet color. Doesn't look like Thundercracker to me. Still nice work though.

    Yeah, I figured I'd live with a jet that didn't really say "Thundercracker" as long as the 'bot was definatly him.

    Nice job, but how come you didn't paint the weapons?

    Wow that's really cool. The dark blue G1 Thundercracker colors are classic to be sure, but I'm glad you went with something else. The colors remind me of something but I cant think of exactly what it is. All I know is grey + navy blue (I think thats what it is) is a really cool combo, good job coming up with it!

    I think it's great but the bot colors look a bit like classics ramjet for hasbro to go with something like that.

    All you people repainting classics to be true classics have me wanting to do that also! But I can't afford it!

    Looks good. He could stand to be a little bluer, but what you went with works well. So now the question is, are you going to do Skywarp?

    It kinda reminds me of MP Starscream(in jet mode), a bit more blue would be nice, but good job.

    Skywarp? Probably not, since the official Skywarp we've seen seems like a perfect deco.

    wow, thats pure and utter badass. Looks more like a Dirge or Ramjet in jet mode. But in robot mode it is unmistakeably Thundercracker. Very nice.

    Wow needs a Skywarp with a flat black/grey (stealth paint) jet form and a glossy black and Purple bot mode.

    (I haven't seen the offical pics yet of the classics Skywarp)

    I think it looks great! It's fairly realistic looking, yet it's true to Thundercracker. Great work! I want to paint my Starscreams wings the way yours are... looks much better!
