    Airstrike pictures by bellpeppers - Photobucket

    This guy started off life as a G1 / Movie hybrid of Thrust. Public opinion was lukewarm, and Supersquad suggested that I call him something different and paint him different.

    At first, I wanted to stick to my guns and keep it Thrust... but since Classics / Universe / Generations thrust was currently keeping the shelf pegs warm I saw more and more merit to the idea.

    SO I present to you the Decepticon AIRSTRIKE

    I dunno... I guess I can go either way: another type of Thrust- which is probably unmarketabe- or custom Airstrike which may be as un-marketable (if not more so.

    At least with Thrust I's know what color to paint him; I'd need some good suggestions for Airstrike. I'm thinking a predominantly black figure with silver and gray accents and highlights.

    Whatever I do, there's some loose fitting pieces that almost fall of by themselves that I hope corrects itself with paint addition.

    I also have the problem with over-zealous sandpapaer scratches and dremel nicks and gouges.

    Thanks for looking.

    I plan on it. I'm thinking black as the jet color.
