    All hail Decepticons! Recently we've been offered a cross over jet from G.I.Joe and Transformers in the shape of Star Scream. with Cobra Commander. Now.. I`ve never been a huge fan of Screamer. But Not a hater of him either. I'm more geared toward Thundercracker, before he was reconstructed by Unicron in the original filmation in the 80's. My girl has a deep love for TC also, it was her wish, to my making of a custom Joe vehicle for a cross over to carry on. So.. I created him a pilot,and went to town! If Cobra Stickers releases a TC decal set, I may get it and add more decals to him. For now I'm waiting to add somethings to it. So.. still have a few more changes to go!

    Now before any of you start tearing it down.. No, it does not transform. as much as I'd love him to beable to, I am just not that great at total reconstructions of that magnitude. However I've done other TF customs, and had made some pretty awesome original characters using older base designs etc.

    Anyway.. Here's my rendition of what TC might have looked like, had Hasbro delivered him to us also.

    Behold, Thundercracker!

    That looks extremely smooth. Airbrushed ? Good work for sure.

    Nope, not airbrushed. and the stripes are hand painted, and not masked off with mask tape. but with Frisket Film. Thanks! Yes, it is smooth.. as glass.. waxed too.

    Thank you! took around 43 hours to do. and sanding, buffing and waxing took about 5 and a half hours to get that beautiful show-room shine! Looks like an automobile finish. I'm real pleased with `em.

    Thank you! Glad my love of the cons can show through!

    I might do another Seeker.. possibly either Skywarp, or Sunstorm. Nor sure on Acid or not. Or.. might make an autobot.. Airraid.

    Yeah but i`m on the fence here with that.. He`s got two different schemes.. one is stripped similar to TC, the other has his own multi stripe system on the wings. Hard to figure which version to do, if I do it.

    Looks awesome. I think a Wild Weasel figure would go great with him. He piloted the Cobra Rattler which was about the same color scheme.

    Beautiful! Thundercracker has always been my favorite Seeker color scheme, and you really nailed it. That blue is amazing.
