    dang nellie, here you are buying customs off me and you can do ones like this?!?!
    nice work. Only critique I'd have is the lack of number 4 on his doors.

    No worries about another Jazz custom. Like a lot of people, I realize that a Classics incarnation, though possible, will most likely not happen. The Prowl mold is the perfect base for this custom. The white came out pretty good. As F_R suggested, more 4's please.

    i have nothing to make 4's with! i wanted to but currently have no printer and idea of how to make decals and this is my first attempt at stripes and masking properly! by the way i sculpted the head and roof of jazz myself! the visor is the neatest trick!

    i cut off the front 'horns' from prowls head and trimmed them down and smoothed them into the visor! waste not want not huh!

    and thanks for the kind words guys!!

    Good job, nellie!
    I'll let my sig do the talking! Jazz approved!!
    As far as the number "4" on the doors(I seen frenzy_rumble already hooked you up but here's some more info)check your local Micheal's store they sell some nice dry-transfer decals. The brand is "Pinecar", I think. Well, hope this helps.
    Again, great custom!

    yeah, but pine cars are a hobby in the UK too (a huge event each year for Boy Scouts) so you should be able to find the stickers easily enough. And don't worry about showing off a jazz, heck I still have one to show off too. :lol  Every single one of these have looked differently from each other, as they all have their own artist's spin. I don't believe the cartoon had any number 4s on it, so if you want to go that route, you can do that too.

    No he had them, maybe not always but he had the 4's. The Marvel comic doesn't always show them and the new IDW comic doesn't have them. I know my custom jazz doesn't have them. I might do them eventually but no plans.

    This one looks pretty good though. Strips aren't easy to paint, I'd say look for pin-stripping for a more clean look. Arm colors are a bit off though. I don't think it's really a big deal to have the black hand, white forearm, and black shoulder but it does set him apart from Prowl more when you do it that way

    Impressive. I have had way to many bad experiences with white paint to use it beyond lightening paints. Once you have those number fours on them ba-dow!! This will be even better.
