    Hey there! I had a Treadbolt lying around and had a hand at painting him into one of the Aerial Bots, Air Raid. His transformation design won't allow the all white/red chest color scheme in bot mode because in jet mode, he wouldn't match his G1 color scheme at all so I had to compromise here and there.

    I painted him with a semi-worn look and I also gave him a set of modified seeker blasters that can be attached and detached via earth magnets.

    Fully transformable! And so...

    You can't paint me!!! :mad 

    And it's a Treadbolt you had lying around, genius. ;) 

    Otherwise, nice paint work, the white is really smooth. I'd argue the jet mode is too bulky for Air Raid (and he needs more firepower), but that's just my opinion.

    Color layout helps distinguish from Jetfire pretty nicely :thumb

    I would have definitely bought this if it were the original repaint color even if the head was black I could have painted it. As it was I never bought the Treadbolt color scheme. It seems like a better update when jets are voyager rather than scout or deluxe. Great work and vision on this one

    You know, I would have gone for the red and white chest by doing faux "flame" paint on the nosecone.

    Thanks guys! G60, what about a regular seeker or even an energon starscream?

    Thanks man and corrected. I wish I had some of his original armor, I could've done something more spectacular :)  with that.

    I know right? I have Silverbolt already and I have a couple other figures in mind for the rest. They kind of all have to be roughly the same size as this guy though.

    Thanks Ktulu, it was a hard figure to bring into G1 without sacrificing one thing for the other.

    Lucs, thank you.

    Not my kind of apps man, but I can see that'd be pretty cool.
