    This set is 90% done, like my other ones. I probably had the most fun painting these guys. This is phase 1, for phase 2 I’ll finish the combiner(which is basically all there already) and add stickers. I have a little dust on these guys in the photos, they've been sitting on my shelf since the fall. This set was inspired by fakebusker!

    This us absolutely spectacular! Beautifull paint work and I love the simple mod you did for Skyquake's wings and the use of POTP Darkwing and Dreadwind for Skydive and Talon. I would like to now, what did you use to reshell Fireflight into Falcon?

    Thanks! I used a Revell model kit that was roughly at the same scale of combiner wars jets. Since it was hollow it could be used as a shell. Chopped off the old jet body and created a backpack w/ putty..reinforced the wings with metal strips.

    Neat!
    I need to start looking into some model kits myself.
    They seem like a great way to add realistic details and get more out of the molds.

    I picked colors based on artwork and the blue really popped. I couldn't get the arm color like I wanted, but i went with it.

    Thanks. I spent the most time with SkyQuake. When I saw what fakebusker did, I knew I had to try..because that mold looks so good as that character. I think CW Cyclonus was spot on for it. If any of y’all Shapeways modelers read this, thank you so much and pls keep them coming. I’m wanting to do the rest of the Euro/G2 teams if possible.

    Ill post combiner mode probably once I finish. Gotta set my workspace back up and finish the combiner head.

    These look awesome. The custom jet modes are really cool. The colors and details are spot on.

    I just don't understand why Hasbro never made this officially. All the molds are there and the fans have been wanting a modern release. Even if they did an exclusive Pulse release. That aside, there is some extremely good work here. Excellent ALT modes, wonderful paint apps and dead on bots. I've had a Hardhead in the wings for years to make a Stalker, yours is quite impressive.
