    hey guys,made these dudes for myself,thought this made for a nice photo opportunity!

    ok g1 jetfire i stole from mike completely and i dont care cos he is mine haha!so there you go mike:p 

    he did a ultimate jetfire a while back that went under the radar compared to some of his other stuff i think but man this was my favorite cartoon version id seen,

    this was my first stab at using those gundam markers also for the panel lining and what a fuckin pain in the ass those things are to use!also im never painting anything in white ever again,i just had so many problem getting it solid enough and id like to point out at this point that citadel skull white primer is fucking shit....but thats another story

    i regret not going all out and articulating the legs,i was so fuckin sick in between commissions i just didnt have the power!

    and movie jetfire,i basically made this up,its prob not screen accurate because i used no reference other than my memory which is shit best of times

    i used a lot of really subtle (so subtle you cant see them haha) alclad metals,really dark steels and knowing when to stop with the details was also hard cos you could detail this thing for years!

    anyhow hope you guys like

    Very nice man, the head is definitely spot on for a helmetless jetfire, and I agree with you on those gundam markers, they are a real pain to use, especially on white, but you pulled it off, sweet job dude! :)

    I am completely shocked by the first picture of the ROTF Jetfire.

    What I can say is it is the BEST ROTF Jetfire, I am sure in the following 50 years I cannot see any better one...

    Awesome work, and man, send you an email...

    Panel lining looks great as do both of the overall looks its just odd comparing both aesthetics since they are so different.

    Still great work

    Agreed, that's definitely one of the best custom ROTF Jetfire I ever came across. Clean & flawless paintjob. What about his jet mode, did you paint that too? Any chance to see his jet mode?

    hello my friend,i refinished the jetmode,there was no point repainting it as there was lots of insignia on there so i just refinished it in a deep gloss to make it look deeper and more realistic,sorry bud i aint transforming this one!haha

    but i could always make you one!!cheers for the comments
