    Hi everyone,

    While I have been working on icanfly's custom commission, I have also been tackling this for a little while, which I finally just finished tonight. This is for my own personal collection and will join the rest of my Binaltech/Alternator/Masterpiece Autobots.

    Seeing what has been done before, and there have been some FANTASTIC customs done of this, I wanted to do my own.

    Without further ado..........MY MASTERPIECE JETFIRE!!!!!

    Enjoy,

    -Gregg

    I actually painted the whole thing w/ Tamiya aircraft sprays "Insignia White". It makes it just a little bit brighter, without putting a heavy gloss on, retaining it's muted white look. Normally the normal plastic looks a little bit darker. Then it has a glossier red for the stripes and armor packs. THEN I stuck Autobot symbols on it. =)

    I still have some very minor paint apps to do to it, mainly in the vents at the front of the boosters.

    Sweet custom. Just curious, what's the specific name of the figure you started with, and how much was it? Personally, if I were to do a MP Jetfire kitbash, I would take the Classics Jetfire, upsize it, and add more articulation and more paint apps to it. Keep up the great work.

    The plane I started with was the Roy Fokker plane.......I really liked some of the color layout of I think it's called "Hikaru" if I pronounced that right........I liked how the colors on the chest were inverted and I mimiked that look on my custom.

    That? I'm curious as this is pretty cool, and I might do something similar. I would do my idea of the upsized Cl. Jetfire, but, well, I don't have the patience or the talent to do something like that, lol. Hmm...if there is a smaller, and cheaper version of this very same one, I might be able to do it after saving up for a while.

    Here are some others I just finished recently, or am in the process of finishing up. Full blown galleries for these will come soon! My original Cliffjumper, Hoist & Trailbreaker I sold to deejemon on the boards here. These are all new ones for my own collection. This Cliffjumper was made when I did the commission for Plowking.

    I'm quite aware. But a Yamato is too nice to muck up with autobot symbols :p  (personal opinion only)
