    Hmm... Windblade from wave 5 is the only straight-up jet, but she doesn't come with any guns.

    One way of doing a needlenose i thought of was was getting an extra triggerhappy and slugslinger then chop off triggerhappys wings, arm guns, and shoulder boosters, cut off one of slugslingers cockpits and put that where the front of triggerhappys cockpit is, then attach slugslingers wings to where triggerhappys wings where, attach terribull as the head and paint everything up

    You could try something with one of the Combiner wars jets (like the TFCC figure) and mod a titan master port in

    I did a straight repaint of Triggerhappy as Needlenose.

    I repainted Highbrow as Spinister with a Shapeways faceplate.

    They're not my best work but they'll do for my collection. You can probably do better but just to give you an idea...

    Thank you. As I said I got the Spinister faceplate on Shapeways but the Apeface Titanmaster might work too.

    Can't help you with the rotors I'm afraid. Personally I'm happy leaving Highbrow's double rotors as they are. I don't mind it not being an exact replica of Spinister once it captures his essence.
