    Mi ultima, last Jetfire custom ever.
    I have to halt at 8.
    Glossed from head to toe.. Back to front..
    Thus, taking pics of it reflects
    the color of my shirt (red orange)
    Hope ya like it ;)

    Nice job on the fine detailing there bro. btw which comes first, the detailing part or the dry-brushing/highlighting?

    Also what type of paints do you use?

    Hey, thanks!
    The dry-brushes/highlights---using acrylic epoxy/enamel paints
    were (on my part usually) done last :)

    This is probably the best looking Jetfire I've seen so far.

    Aside from the intentional overuse of gloss (not my personal cup of tea), absolutely agree with this 100%. Detail work is fabulous. Love the wiring and the old man pose. It's awesome! Well done!

    You did 8? You are a machine! :lolol 

    Anyway, this also seems to be your best. Aside from the gloss which I'm also not a fan of, the details are very well done. I love how different adjacent panels have different shades of black/gray/silver. This is an effect that I'm also going for on my custom Jetfire.

    Amazing job :thumb

    Thanks bros! I appreciate it!
    And I was thinking of giving the rightful owner
    an option for its jet mode to be "un-glossed"
    Hmmmmmm :)
