    So this is another Leader Prime I've completed. I still need to take bot mode pics. Pretty much straight run like the first, however with this version, I redid the flames, using real images of the Prime truck at botcon 2 years ago. Traced them in illustrator and made vinyl stencils.

    Here's the Jetfire for the combo: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radic...eader-jetfire-mods-part-1-power-up-prime.html

    I went a little darker with the red and blue this time as well. Overall darker shade on the entire figure, to help blend him with Jetfire when combined.

    Cool little extra I added was some 24 gauge jewelry wire coiled around a brush to resemble the wires on the back of the cab.

    I'm also a lot happier with the chrome results this round.

    F_R, could you save that Illustrator fire stencil as a PDF and attach it? I'm sure many of us would love it.

    Super nice work!

    Are you going to add the chains to the back as well? You can get nice miniature chains from model ship sites.

    Awesome. I love this vehicle mode and you make it look even better. Quick question, what did you use to chrome the parts?
