    Repainted from Hasbro MP Skywarp, it is similar to my last Thundercracker, but
    well more detailed, he is my first commission. I drilled out the tips of his null
    rays for a more accurate look, and added a few chrome silver accents here and
    there. And no, I didn't do the leg mod, I didn't have time to experiment with it
    on my last one, and I didn't want to jack this one up, the tail wings are just
    stuck on his legs for the pics.

    And this time instead of stickers, his wing stripes were hand painted on. I
    learned much on my last TC, so I applied it to this one, and the same customer
    wants me now to do a matching Skywarp, to be more toon accurate (purple
    shoulders and null rays), but still look unique to match TC.

    looks great. i prefer the wing logos the other way, but i'm sure that was probably the clients request.

    and that display base looks wicked!!

    I put them on like the original toys and toon had them at times. That is also
    why I like body colored nose cones, toon accurate. Even though the blue I used
    was darker than his on screen persona, I wanted to make him more real life jet,
    and less toonish.

    The client allowed me to pretty much do him up how I wanted, he liked my
    last one, and was outbid for it, so I did it the same sort of, only 100% better.

    Damn, I'd be hard pressed to tell it was painted at all. It doesn't look like it one bit. Top notch work.

    Thanks guys, I do try sometimes to go for the factory look, I usually use satins then.
    But like movie figures I try to go for the rough shiny steel look, and alt modes are usually
    high gloss clear, for that showroom fresh new car smell.
