    OH GOD. I feel so embarrased showing this here. My first custom, and using low quality cardboard haha. Pretty much just making the jetfire parts and putting them on, still need to do the legs and add some paint apps. So yeah pretty embarassing, considering some of the stuff you guys do..

    I was wanting to originally just wanting to give him a custom paint job but since i dont have the materials for that yet, i thought i would do this for fun:) 

    I will say though, that my camera is crap and it looks better in person xD

    I really like the idea and it's not as bad as you think. Everyone has to start somewhere keep customizing trust me it's fun and is a good way to pass time. Welcome aboard

    It's a great start :thumbs2: 

    A lot of customiszers try their ideas with cardboard or paper first before using styrene. I'm pretty sure you'll be able to make that transition :)  You can try out those clear plastics from carded transformers, they're like cardboard in a way except you can sand and paint 'em :) 

    Don't be embarrassed. Seriously it does look great. I like the shape of the wings. Great job :)

    Now you can take this as a good thing or a bad thing but:

    Unless you've read "To Do" books for years and stuff....Your custom will not that great:
    Example:I was going to make a Dead End out of ROTF Barricade as my intro into the custom world...but....It turned into a greenish red or "Up-Chuck" color...sooo you get it.

    But unlike the speical editon ''Up-Chuck'' Barricade......This is AWESOME!!!!!!

    ;)  Thanks for the custom....and I hope you make some new stuff in the near future!!
