Hell yeah! That is fantastic! Filling in the blanks on that figure really made it pop. Great photos; especially the before and afters.
lol I just did the EXACT same thing to my Jazz yesterday, except I painted the "rear window" all the way across. In robot mode, the part that shows on the front of the legs is very subtle. I will take a picture when I am off tomorrow.
Fantastic job man..... really completes this figure in a good way. =)

The work looks really good! Thanks for sharing!
Definitely doing that to mine!
im hoping the united version has these kind of paint apps
great job as they were much needed on the RTS version of jazz
It's a really nice touch up, but something has caught my attention about this particular figure. It looks like his forearms are actually white plastic as apposed to painted white? How does that happen?
No, the forearms are painted white... at least on mine they are. I will admit that they do look like they're molded in white plastic in this version. He could've touched them up as well.
Nicely done. Reminds me of this.
altering those few paint apps shouldn't improve the toy as much as it does. mine won't go long without recieving these paint apps i'm sure.
It's funny how so many of Hasbro's Transformers look incomplete out of the package. Dollars to donuts the United version will have painted rims and rear lights.
yeah, they are painted, and really look different than the plastic cast parts.
yino - nice work!
Very nice - I plan to do some touch ups as well, but I'll probably wait and see what Delta's going to come up with for stickers; continuing the stripe down the back and stickers for the rear areas would be a lot easier than paint, then I can focus on the wheels and front grille
Mainly this is the way it looks because often times this is the case to an extent. During the Hasbro tour at Botcon 2007, the explanation of lack of additional paint apps per figure to stay under budget was discussed.
Personally, while the paint apps may be MIA, I'm always thankful the sculpting work is present
Yea, the mold detailing is always there. All you need is a little paint or panel lining to make them pop. I really love this mold despite its minor flaws. Perhaps my favorite Classics-themed figure. Yino's work makes it even better.
the different wheel sizes really makes an awesome difference
I noticed that Jazz's gun is somewhat based on his G1 pretender rifle, but smaller. I wonder if the original will fit.
lokks good got to do that when i get mine
