    Couldn't find Jetfire when he was released, and I really don't want to pay an arm and a leg for the figure now. Found the Treadbolt repaint a couple months back so I picked him up. Absolutely loved the mold but I hated the color scheme, so this is what I turned him into.

    Base coated with black Krylon Fusion, everything else done with Testors Acrylics.

    I'm almost happy with the result, I may hit the designs with some wet 2000 grit sandpaper to try and smooth them out

    Enjoy! Feedback and criticism welcome. :D

    Ohh man, that's Niiice.
    Like how you used the purple sparingly. Jet mode is so sexy

    lol!!!!! I just got Treadbolt in the post and took him out of the box, like 10 minutes ago! The reason I got him is the exact same as you, awesome work there dude, if mine turns out even half as good as that I'll be happy :)

    Skywarp Prime!!

    ...If he were an Autobot.

    Nice repaint. Maybe to break up all that black (yet still keep it black), put some flat-black on certain areas. Well, I think that could work out cool. Just to give it a finishing touch.

    I third the motion, Jazz Hands. although it's kind of a shame to do it, since the original blue paint scheme is not bad at all.

    but I digress. nice subdued paintjob, overall. even the amber windscreen works.

    I like it! The name is lacking, but I like the figure. I think he should be called 'Stormcloud' or 'Thunderhead.'

    I get a Skywarp feel from him more than Jetfire, but I really like the purple that you used.

    What color purple is that? It looks metallic from your pictures.
