    That looks great! I was looking into making one of these myself last week actually, but got scared off by the price. Those things are pretty pricey, without the armor too, yeah?

    It was a bit on the expensive side. It cost me around $250 for the figure and fastpacks. It was worth it to me though, Jetfire is one of my favorites, he's right up there with Prime and Prowl in my book. I do not regret doing it one bit.

    This looks really great! I'm not keen on the faction symbols being so stark on the thrusters (I'd recommend a solid black color), but aside from that the only other thing you need to do is ship it here :)

    I too am not big on the thruster symbols. I would prefer black but I do not have any. I do have some silver ones though that I may try on there.

    Man, that looks great!:thumbs2:  Only thing I would do is paint the back of the leg armor, and you might think about giving him a red eyeshield like the original.

    I am going to do the red visor. I want to find a metalic red sticker that I can cut to fit it. similar to the color of MP Magnus. Once I get to a craft store I will try to find one.

    This rocks so much .. The silver faction logo is a huge difference i think , perfect fit..

    I would love to get me one of these to make a Jetfire. Maybe next summer ill get ahead in my money troubles and be able to buy one lol.

    added a group shot of my 3 favorite figures. Jetfire is not a tall as Prime but still fits in well. I hope MP Grimlock is at least as tall as my MP Jetfire.

    You need the Macross Yamato 1/48 VF-1S Hikaru version. I didn't do any paint apps to the bot itself. The only thing applied was the Autobot faction symbol. Then you have to purchase a Macross 1/48 Super & Strike parts set to add the armor.

    Ah, thanks. I wasn't sure if it was the 1/48 or not.
