    Still a WIP, head from Silverstreak, hands from Gundam and body from Cybertron TC. Need to thin out the whites and add detailing.

    I know, I know, he is not a F-15.

    Looks great, you actually made that Thundercracker mold look all right. Did you do anything to correct the floppiness that made the original such an annoyance?

    I think its a great G1-styled interpretation, the way the wings sit back there. Would love to see your full Aerialbots team! Is there a Superion in the future?! :)

    That looks great, despite the fact I still hate Air Raid.

    Like you hinted at yourself ; make sure the white paint looks
    (near) perfect with razor sharp panel lining.

    Goodluck !

    I used some nail varnish to tighten the joints, it is not floppy anymore.

    Not at the moment, Air Raid is just experimental, if he turns out ok, I might do the rest of the Aerialbots.

    Thanks! :thumb  I will be fixing this in the weekend. At the moment, here is what I have.

    You've changed my mind about this mold. Looks great and that picture above is great!

    The only nitpick I have are the dainty Cinderella feet...

    ...but it pales in comparison to the overall awesomeness of this figure!

    To be honest, that is one of the things I find that bugs me about this. As we have a perfectly fine Classics F-15 mold that could possibly just use some modding to change the transformation some.

    I think that mold could suit Skydive better, with a bit of modding to turn the Sukhoi Su-35 into a decent F-16ish jet.

    That said, I can't say anything about craftsmanship. Pretty good work overall.

    I think it would have been too obvious a Classics Seeker mold.

    This is way more fresh.

    That came out great! It's nice to see one of these guys free of the Clasics seeker mold.
