    I've been wanting to do this one for a LONG time, and now that the weather is getting better here he is. I used Krylon Smoke Grey, Rustolium Colbalt Blue, and Testors Dark Flat Aircraft Grey. Enjoy

    Nice! I like how you made the 'con symbols seem worn down, and the Incinerator Reprolabels seem right at home on this guy! Well Done!

    Nice work!

    The only critique I might add is to put a little darker gray on the face around the mouthplate, and other inner mechanical details, to give some depth. But that's just a bit of feedback. Great work.

    It's pretty obvious, but I'll ask anyway: did you base your color scheme on E-Hobby Bad Boy?

    Either way, it looks nice. I prefer the original colors along with a visor/grill faceplate. Perhaps an TFTM Incinerator head with these mods would work?

    I wanted to go for a more realistic color scheme and the e-hobby badboy was white, so I didnt want to go that route. But I did want it to keep some of the EH BadBoy homage, so I added the dark blue.

    Both Shades of grey are actually a lot darker than they photographed. So its a lot closer to the Aircraft's Actual Colors

    Rod, you continue to impress me with each new custom you share. GREAT work :thumb 

    One thing I think that is really cool is that this guy would fit superbly well as a "movie" repaint, much like the TRU repaints of Cyb Jetfire and Cyb Wing Saber. Hasbro needs to get on this!
