    The glossy alt mode isn't movie accurate, but it looks pretty good. :)  I like the paintwork on the 'bot mode, too. It captures the look of the CG model very well. Great work adding those fins and turbine lights. Galing pare! :thumb

    Nice! At first I thought you had just cleared the jet mode because of how factory the apps look, great job man!

    If you don't mind my asking, what lights did you use? I reckon that you found them locally (Philippines), I'd like to do something like this to my Jetfire also. :)

    Hey, hey..
    I just got the blinkers from our robot kit projects 5yrs ago
    From Alexan Raon, as far as I can remember..
    Replaced the batteries with new ones.

    ^^
    The blinkers fortunately were the small round ones
    I just had to trim its base part a little so that
    it won't be visible from the thrusters'/turbines'
    top/bottom/side views :)
