    Hi everyone.
    After a week rest. I have finally completed project Jet Blade. This is one of the harder one that I have found compare to prime and bee. Parts seperations is hard due to many of the pegs and rods needed to be taken out. I have use pre-shading on it like how I do my model planes and armor vehicles. Water slide decal has been place of wings flaps and body. I didn't want to overdo it due to it size. Had to find the decals that suit this deluxe Tf. Enamel wash to give the panel line a raise and coated with Gaia Semi-Gloss. Decepticon symbol are trimmed to remove most of the silver edge and them applied on the wings. I also trimmed along the panel lines of the wings to make the symbols sticks on the different panel so it won't look pasted on. Finally the canopy is misted clear and polish to shine. Front air-intake valves are weathered down also. Chest I have also weathered with silver enamel and black enamel to show paint chipping. But when transform to Alt mode. No paint chipping will show. Just like in the movie :)  Will have this on Ebay by this Sat.

    May I present to you. My Custom Jet Blade.

    For wash wise. I use enamel paint and thin it till it very watery. Then I use a fine brush to panel line it. Once it done. I will clean off the residue with Q-tip. Let it dry and use another color enamel (My combo is black for panel line and mixed grey into the leftover black enamel for wash) and brush it over the parts. Let it dry then use some zippo liquid on the paper handkerchief and wipe on it lightly. And you will be able to see the effects like this Jet blade custom. Hope this helps you in your future custom.

    @ FrankyWest,Shadowbreaker and Superquad7

    Many thanks guys for your kind words :)  Will work hard to created more custom :)
