    my 2nd "Card" custom

    Here's the link to my Leader Prime Trailer:
    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/444883-custom-optimus-prime-trailer-guns-wip.html

    Since I still have the momentum to cut and cut hard card board, i've decided to make another one, A cardboard based Jetwing Pack for my leader Prime

    I'm still in the search for materials in my room and storage room for this thing

    After all the awesome Jetwing PRime customs I'm just kinda shy to show this but what the heck!
    hopefully I'll be able to paint it on the weekend, the boosters will follow, can't find one yet :)

    i really can't get anything that looks like jet thrusters so i just used pvc pipes, secured by magnets and highlighted the wings, when the sun comes out i'll spray him with silver paint and hopefully the highlights will be embossed

    this is only for my personal collections, It's hard to accept commissions if I can't give a fair amount of time and the materials I use are biodegradable, it'll just give up on you after some time, haven't found a common (in my vicinity) plastic trash to use for my projects, and I'm from the Philippines, it won't be cost effective for me and the potential buyer :) 

    thanks for the idea though, I may need to think about this thing, ehehe! $$$!

    its easy to make the pattern actually, ratio and proportion according to the picture, for you i'd give it for free :)  but I forgot to take pictures of the unglued parts, if you like i can take shots of the extra parts I used so you can have an idea, and re-measure the dimensions, i'm also planning to do this in plastic and if I can find a suitable material i'll take pictures and share it to you guys

    found a toy binoculars at a public market, i restructured the pvc pipes to accommodate the additional "rocket boosters" now i just fave to find tips for the tubes, I photoshopped the picture so I could get an idea what it will look like with silver paint
