    Nice color scheme. What type of paints are you using? I find that Tamiya works great.

    G1 Jetfire (Skyfire) did not combine with Optimus Prime. That was started with Armada.

    Good job though.

    I was using Folkart but it seemed to plastic looking so SonofNemesis turned me to Tamiya. It's an easy paint to control and goes on thin enough that it doesn't look brushed, but solid enough that it only takes 1 or 2 coats. I recently did a Galvatron that is completely done in Tamiya paints. The gunmetal works great in just 1 coat. By the way - I'm looking forward to seeing more of your stuff in the future!
