    I've been requested close to 20 times to do another Skyfire since my first one back in 04. Figured it may have been the best thing I've done so I thought I'd take another stab at er.
    This one will be a mix of the Dreamwave and G1 Skyfire. The only thing I'm incorporating from the comic adaptation is the panel styling. (No extra boostery things or helmet)

    Most of the jet parts are from a 1/72 scale B1 Lancer. This makes it (apparently) in exact scale to MP Starscream as Dr Archevil fits perfectly in all the ejection seats. The details include a full double seated cockpit in the nose section and another set of seats in the upper capsule.
    Fold out landing gears in the nose and in the legs sections are not parts-formerish this time.
    A fold out ladder to enter the ship is also in the bottom section.
    Actual lasers will be used in the side vents of the cockpit. (Donated from one of them there laser levels.)

    ....oh, and this is my first full-on scratch build. Big thanks to Anemis, Lobo, Turbodguy, Wheeljack, Jarrod, Dak, and Viagraprime for the inspiration over the years. Took me this long to attempt one myself.

    Wow! The shear size alone is incredible. But the detail going into it will just about go unmatched. Can't wait to see more.

    Wow. This is gonna be good. Awesome picture with seats up front; the pilot helps add a sense of scale. That'd be one big ass robot right there. Awesome stuff.
