    already made this one a pretty good while ago:
    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/380942-true-classics-skyfire.html

    I thought it was ready for a voyager size more toy accurate classics figure :) 

    Not sure if there is an armor @ this scale, might use Classics JF's...
    I used a rubber non transforming (only gerwalk) type Macros or something :p 
    mixed with a previous unfinished modded figure

    After about roughly 3/4 of a day, this is what I already accomplished ;) 

    ENJOY C&C Welcome! :D 

    UPDATE1:
    Wow damn that work on the canopy sucked bigtime!!
    still it worked only problem is that I couldn't double fold them like the classics
    But obviously they can still b replaced by the classics jetfire nosecone

    But since i've bought that way overprice metal figure hehe...
    I'm gonna sell this one but b 4 I paint it would anyone want a yellow version?
    cuz that would save me bigtime on the painting obviously!
    Otherwise I would b happy 2 do a jetfire version...
    Also I need sum1 2 deliver me a highquality scan of the G1 Jetfire stickersheet
    cuz for both this one & my upcomming metal version 1 want a true replica!

    SO if anyone has a Stickersheet and willing 2 scan PM.. or offer for my custom


    EXTRA:
    I'l turn the 3 into SFC mini Jetfire's so PM with offer if interested!

    hmmm...not sure I like this one man. Most of your stuff I think is rather interesting but this one looks odd to be honest IMO, but hey whatever floats your boat right ;)

    At first glance, I thought you had done a "yellowed" recolor of the classics toy...as it is hard to find one nowadays that hasn't suffered from that :) 

    I do like your work on this one, especially the legs--I never took to the original cylindrical ones with the tiny feet. Looks great, keep it up!!

    Ehm....nice concept, but I do think, the scale is off. The arms especially, are too big for the rest ( and that's coming from a guy who likes long arms )

    Personally, I think the Bandai Hi Metal VF1 1/100 would make the perfect Classics SkyFire, with a headswap... but those have grown rather rare and overpriced ( even though I think they're fantastic. )

    I'm not really feeling the end result, but I definitely appreciate the skills that went into putting this together.

    Oh man, that rocks hard because it's quite a ballsy move to customize one of those Hi Metals. I love my hi metal VF1J - in fact.. I think it's got SUPERIOR articulation compared to
    those 1/60 Yamato VF1's - .. but I don't dare to customize it in any way actually. Goodluck with yours !

    Eh buddy,this reminds me too much of Gundam Wing's, Wing Gundam Bird mode.....probably would have had better results using that thing honestly. Just not feeling this one.

    wel i dont need this in my collection anymore since i have the metal version to turn into g1 jetfire, but this 1 could still satisfy Macross lover ryt ;) 

    hey dude thnx for dropping by again thnx for commenting :D 

    thnx dude.. :)  i think its easier if I made the white parts yellow instead of all the yellow parts white.. an yellow version i will prolly still finish but the question remains who would want it :(
