    I wasn't a fan of the wings we got with Air Raid, so I got a KO Classics Skywarp off ebay and I'm currently working them into the Air Raid mold. the wings won't swivel around, but they'll still fold up.

    these wings are currently in the painting phase. I'll show finished photos when I'm done

    Nice! With some minor remolding they could have made this mold into a seeker too.

    I've got the same idea...since I have KO skywarp wings laying around from my last custom...and incidentally that was an Air Raid too.

    Question - why didn't you remove the base of the wing as well? is that connected to the body by studs (like skydive) or a through rod (like firefly)?

    Thanks! this oughtta be sweet! none of the aerielbots look like they could make it off the ground with such tiny wingplanes and scarcity of rotor blades!

    I'm a big fan of the youtube channel, mate. This is the most extensive mod I've seen you do. I'm personally happy with my F-14 Air Raid, but since you've gone this far, you should find a way to give Phantom wings to fireflight.

    dang man, that'd be quite the ordeal . but I'll take a look and what I can do. Customs aren't really my expertise, although i do like how this one turned out.

    but yeah, the fact they made Slingshot and Firefly the same mold kinda bugs me. especially in jet and combined mode. one has to be a leg and the other an arm in order for it to look any good

    it's got two little posts that snap into a groove. I had considered removing that altogether, but i wanted the wings to be able to fold up so that I could still make them combine. and so that he didn't look like batman when in robot mode. I made a short little video about the finished figure on my Youtube channel called "The Lazy Eyebrow Reviewer"

    yeah after doing about 15 mins of research and looking at comparative photos and what not I have no idea how that could be done. doesn't help that his harrier design leaves his wings on a pin. arg!

    this is how the damn thing should've looked in the first place.

    looks great. i've always liked F-15's much much more than F-14's.

    not really, he looks pretty much the same though, just looks a bit more Skydiveish is all

    I'm in the middle of moving so the figure is packed now, I'll be reviewing the whole team in the fall
