    it's now 12:20 and about to finish a 17 hour day of customs. exhausted, but happy to finally have the first part of Power-Up Prime ready for the forums.

    Here's the Prime thread of the combo : http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radic...ss-optimus-prime-power-up-prime-part-2-a.html
    Some minor mods to Jetfire which I think improve the figure:

    - Added very bright LEDs to his turbines
    - Made the arm kibble on his forearms removable (because it's not there in the movie)
    - painted his alt mode flat black, masked off the decals/graphics, then dusted it with a charcoal grey
    - modded his hands so the fingers all articulate and move independently

    He'll be combining with Prime hopefully tomorrow. LOTS of extras gonna be on the Power-Up Prime when complete.

    Very nice. I love the jet engines. A bit more black in robot mode would be perfect.

    your making constucticles!!!!! Well, I guess we all have that in mind!!!

    Any way, this looks great. Did you add the battle scars? And was there nothing to be done with the fat torso?

    Thanks guys. If I had any redbull left, I might be able to crank out a photo shoot of prime and then the combined version, but can't keep my eyes open any more. Jetfire was fun to paint, I wanted to give him the rustic, old, worn look that best captures his character from the movie. If I had more skills, I'd make little sparks shooting out from him.

    I was debating putting random screws, gears and springs on the ground next to him, but most wouldn't understand what I'm trying to convey making him look like he's falling apart.

    yeah, some random subtle scars are on him. mainly on the plates for bot mode (i think some of the closeup shots you can see them better)
