    Here's my custom G1 Jetfire. He is about half done,still need to replace legs with something more poseable,most likely from a universe powerglide. Hope you like.


    Finally did something to this guy,(thanks to another member for posting up his w.i.p.) I put on those powerglide legs to give him more posablity,still needs ALOT of work,making them look like they belong and more G1-ish, but now that those are on i might start doing somemore to him.

    if u look else where in post there are other pictures

    I plan on doing chest mods so he look more like G1 cartoon which will also make the new head not look so high up.

    All c&c welcome.

    I wonder why someone hasn't made a SKYFIRE out of Cloudraker? The wings can be moved forward.

    Looking good so far!

    What's the grey stuff you're using? If it's something like Mighty Putty then please tell me how you get it so smooth and detailed! :)

    Some of the customs that I like the best is the ones that take old junker G1s and turning them into masterpieces. Your Jetfire is no exception. I really look forward to seeing the final custom! :)

    Hey everyone thanks for the good remarks,makes me think I need to work on this guy a little more,being as I haven't done anything to him in months unless you consider gatherings parts as doing something. I posted a new picture of him in robot mode. I'm having trouble with the pictures being to big to upload,if anyone knows of an easy fix please let me know,keep in mind I'm not great with computers. Oh yeah someone ask about the grey stuff,its just automotive eching primer in a spraycan.

    Glad to see this is being done to a junker, and not a minty. What kind of look are you trying to accomplish here?

    glad kenm2474 gets it!

    After marcatron's response I thought i might have been going in the wrong direction with this one, but the response from kenm2474 is perfect! He let me know without a single word that i was def. pulling off the G1 cartoon look so far... thanks dude!

    That's a sweet head! But I think he needs either some sort of neck, or the head to be lowered. Probably could use a bit of a neck to fill it out some. But I like it!
