    I had always wanted to make an Air Raid since Classics Starscream came
    out and so I finally got my chance. not one of my best but I am happy
    with him.

    I really like it. The way he's painted, I don't even notice the "seeker" looking things beside his head.

    I only wished the head sculpt was updated though.

    I don't redo heads, if I did i'd have a lot of headless TF's.
    I thought though that SC's head looked enough like Air Raids
    not to warrant it. like Jetfire's head for Silverbolt, only real difference
    is that SB's head is more square. and considering that SB's is more or
    less adding some flat stock and minor reshaping, I may attempt his later.

    Totally agree. For some reason, it doesn't even look like the same mold as Starscream. Very cool!

    Air Raid was my first Transformer, and the only one of the Aerialbots that I ever managed to get. You totally nailed it. Awesome job on the paint, real nice silver details, and I love the modded chest.

    I agree this is really amazing. The paint job really sells it for me and makes the seeker bot elements nearly disappear.

    Great Job! Air Raid looks just like Air Raid! Paint looks clean and really precise. Keep up the good work

    as soon as I can find / they make deluxe jets that fit the looks closely
    I do want to put Starscreams nose on a Ramjet body, to maybe make Skydive,
    and do a rear tailwing mod, but as far as the others I will have to see what molds
    are out there now & what's going to come out later.
    I want to get another Jetfire / Treadbolt to redo Silverbolt.

    This is one awesome little custom, man. Been a huge fan of Air Raid since I was a kid and I dig what you've done here. I'm also very impressed with the way Silverbolt turned out--and together, they really do look sweet. Keep up the great work--can't wait to see the others.

    this is AWESOME! i have an Acid Storm that i want to do a repaint. after seeing this, i have a lot of inspiration. I might do a more "G1" repaint on Silverbolt b/c i don't have the Henkei version.
