    The latest addition to my Tetrajet line...Skywarp! Check out his video here. Skywarp was 50% scratch-built using styrene, flat-black basecoat & hand-painted acrylic detailing....I'm thinking Thundercracker will be next... :ev: ​

    Really like the colouring and shadings on him. Heck a lot of talent to pull this one! Just curious, in terms of man hours. How long did it take to complete such a project?

    I have to say this is your best Tetrajet to date man.
    It pretty spot on to the cartoon version.
    Do you have a group picture of all of these guys together?

    Thanks Sabby! It's hard to gauge, because I can never seem to work consistently on one to get a good count. Without interruptions, working about 4 to 6 hours a day I can get one knocked out in about 2 weeks. It typically takes me about 2-1/2 weeks to do one, because there's so many steps with styrene fabrication, waiting for cement to cure, then disassembly, basecoating, final coat & final hand-painted details & decals. It's just a pain because it's such a big figure, but I've yet to be disappointed when I step back and look at one when it's done! :eek:

    Thanks man!

    Thanks Colin! I work hard on my projects, but that incredible Prime you built will always be a hard act to follow!!!

    Thanks bro, I wish I did, but they've all been shipped out! The only good group shot I had was the 3 Rainmakers a while back... Hopefully someday soon I can finish the line of Tetrajet seekers with Thundercracker, Ramjet, Thrust & Dirge! ....And perhaps Slipstream? I wish I would've included a voting poll in this thread, anybody know how to do that? I guess I missed that feature when I created this thread....damn.

    Why must you tempt me with this?
    I'm a sucker for anything Skywarp and you don't fail to disappoint with this one, KINGBOTZ.
    Sick job on the paint and general look of the figure.
