    Well,

    I took a Cybertron Jetfire and painted it the G1 scheme. I hated the pea puke looking green on the toy, so it had to go. Did a couple base coats of grey, followed by several coats of drybrushing white on this thing. Then decided to panel it with dark grey.

    I also hated the hands on this figure... they came out of his thrusters, and they were stiff fists. So i dremeled his fists, inserted sockets and stuck in two gundam hands. Now they have a bit of articulation! also, the Gun was added from another gundam figure i had lying around somewhere!

    Still some work needed on my dry brushing. .. but anyways here it is!

    Nextup.... not sure yeT! lol

    PLEASE COMMENTS AND CRITIQUE ARE WELCOMED!

    Damn! I never thought this mold would work with the G1 color scheme. But you proved me wrong. Like the panel lining and the weapon. Great work!

    I'll add a bit more of red and some black. Otherwise it's very good!

    Absolutely.

    Those Gundam hands and the sockets mod was a great idea, man.

    Very cool, the Gundam hands are definitely a nice touch...Hasbro really needs to start making hands like that standard issue.

    Btw, what's the red paint you used for this?
