    First off, I HATE ROTF Stratosphere and I hated painting him. Now that I got that off my chest, I think he came out pretty cool. I only bought him so that my Incinerator can have someone to have a vicious kicking match with. I would imagine that the fight between these two would be lots of slashing and kicking attacks. Incinerator might use his blades and Stratosphere might use his jet engines.

    Usual stuff, black base coat, silver and aluminum drybrushing, and 3 shades of gray.

    Awesome work like usual !

    Why did you dislike painting Stratosphere ? Many rubbing spots or softplastics ?

    It's just overall a crappy figure. Arms pop off very easily, LOTS of rubbing issues, nothing wants to snap on right in jet mode, getting the wings and legs to transform from jet mode feels like I'm going to break the figure. I got it for $14 bucks. Glad I didn't get it for $22 when it first came out. Still, It does look nice repainted. I like the lighter gray for him and the darker one for Incinerator.

    I don't mind the size. Just give him a better bot mode and a better transformation.

    Thanks!

    Thanks again!

    Superb, detailed paintjobs on two bloody awful figures ;)  That said, I like the mods you've done with your Incinerator; you've made it a great deal less awful that it is out-the-box. Good skills as always sir.

    Attack of the chicken legs! But seriously, they both look really good. I don't really like the Stratosphere mold, but it does look much better painted.

    I've always liked Incinerator just not the colors and that all spark blue. But I always wanted to give him hands and feet.

    A TF cock fight!
