    Here is a custom G1 Jetfire: Jetfire was made from a Macross 1/48 super valkyrie. The Valkyrie started as red version and now painted white. Try to keep as clean as possible. He was given a brand new custom head and hands. I have custom made new gun to match the one he used in the original cartoon. As an extra I made a helmet that easily sides on to his head to give him a more comic book look also. He stands @ 10.5” to the top of his head. He is taller than an MP Starscream

    thank you guys for stooping by and viewing and commenting

    very clean paint. The head though looks too small. Looks ok with the helmet but without it's too small.

    Somehow, I find this to be the BEST Jetfire yet. :drool: 

    Odd but unique choice to put the red 'ribbon' on the midsection of his torso.
    The headsculpt looks awesome too, with this collar kind of thing around the base.
    Great job !

    * side note opinion : the pics with MP Starscream look great...and they illustrate how I have always
    found the Valk design to be way better as a jet-former than the Seekers. I mean...Starscream's design
    elements look so very rectangular compared to Jetfire, who evokes more 'jet' in robotmode.

    very nice man. I've been also wanting to do one of these, using the same model, but damn - they are expensive. HAven't seen one on ebay with the super parts for less than $150...
