    I don't know if I had ever posted this or not, but I pulled it out of storage recently. I did this a few years ago. I think it turned out fairly well, except for the cockpit. I used regular old spraypaint for the red. The black I believe was flat black model car paint and the yellow was glossy model car paint. I won't use that stuff again... I think the red did ok though. It's an el cheapo KO Robotech Valkyrie painted in a G1 Thrust deco. I don't have a name for him but I thought Thrustfire might be good.
    Please no attention to the dirty carpet and the horrible photography skills! LOL

    I have been saying for months now that I will do Classic seekers. I just got my final seeker in the mail last week and this hopefully will get me motivated. Anyhow...please be gentle....remember, it was my first time:

    If that bugger had a head-swap that more-closely resembled G1 Thrust it'd be damn-cool. As of now its simply cool; which is fine!

    PS: Fine-line automotive tape (blue) is awesome for masking off stripes like the ones on the arms & wings.

    A unique take on him, not bad.

    Your paint apps are better than the ones Hasbro applied to my TFTM Rescue Ratchet...

    Honestly, it does look cool. That mold has a lot in common with the movie Starscream figures, especially the FAB version. I agree he could use a headswap, but the traditional conehead version won't look right when you can clearly see the nosecone on the chest.

    Thanks for the comments. I agree on the headswap, but none of that really dawned on me back then. I doubt I coulda pulled that off.
