    Jetfire has been sitting on my shelf completed for over a year now, and I've only gotten to taking a full gallery now.

    Standard flat black basecoat and then drybrushing with numerous shades of gray and silver. Cleaned up with some flat (and gloss) black afterwards. As with most predominantly black/silver/metal-colored bots, the main goal was to have as much variation as possible in terms of the drybrushing between adjacent parts/panels.

    Please click on the thumbnails to enlarge the pics. :)

    Alt mode pics? Didn't even bother as transforming this guy is so frustrating! Nothing much to see there anyway. :p 

    Instead, here's a group shot with the rest of the bots featured in ROTF:

    Thanks for looking! As usual, comments/critiques are very much welcome. You may see more pics of this and my other customs on the following pages:

    Could not hope to make a better impression. Thanks! :) 

    Thanks man! :)  I purposely did some overspray with the black basecoat to give it more of a rough, crusted texture. That and the dust that this has been gathering made for a nice effect.

    Thanks! :)  I finally have a complete lineup of customized movie-appearance 'bots, just in time for the next batch of movie toys!

    Salamat, idol! :thumb 

    Thhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnkkkkkkkkksssssssss! :) 

    I'm glad you think so! Thanks! :)  Looking forward to your next awesome modded ROTF/DOTM figure!

    Thanks! :)

    you're welcome mate :) 

    I don't trust me to get my fingers on this guy. Everytime when i want to start to repaint him I get fearful, i don't know why. Maybe i got to much perfect impressions like you'r ^^

    what's you next project? or is it top secret? :)

    To be honest it was actually a little boring painting this guy up - there was so much surface area to do a black basecoat on and it was tiring doing all that drybrushing after awhile. Get to it before the DOTM toys arrive! Haha

    I actually don't have any more projects lined up. Just waiting for the new DOTM bots. :) 

    Thanks! :)  Took me long enough to complete the bots for the group shot.

    Salamat! :)

    Did you do the finger seperation mod on him? i did with one of mine (have sold him accidantly :( ) its a real cool mod.

    and i'm thinkinf about to add jetfire-hands/fingers to starscream, might it work? i don't know...

    Yup I did the mod on his fingers. I don't think that the Jetfire hands would look nice on Starscream. IMO the hands on LC Starscream work well for that figure already. :)
