    Dug this guy out of my junk drawer a couple days ago (it's the only place I can store him). I think I'm going to buy one of those damn Anakin podracers. The price on those is unusually high considering what a crap toy it is. I'm beginning to question whether the parts are going to make a decent trailer, they're so horribly irregular. It would basically have to be a cart that all the parts clip on to. What scale is this Prime? I think I'm just going to buy a model trailer and modify it.

    I wonder how much I could sell this for as is...

    If you are serious about selling your custom job, can I please have the Jetfire armor only? :confused:  :(

    If so, the artist can post it in either the Junk Pit or the Commissioner's Listing and Feedback. Radicons Customs isn't a for sale section.

    I guess it doesn't hurt to try... I'm pretty sure my custom's worth more than nothing, though. I decided I'm going to start cleaning it up and doing detail work, then I'm going to paint it. Then maybe it'll go the way of ebay. But for now, I was thinking of doing a semi-gloss on the SR-71 panels. I think matte is more accurate, but it looks pretty dull.

    To agree with everybody, this really is awesome work! The fact that it's just an armor upgrade really makes a big difference!

    Holy crap! I was trying to figure out how to get the shin armor attached when it sort of got stuck to the figure. I discovered that Prime's calf armor has a joint that lets it pop out an additional 2 mm for bulk, pretty crazy. It's not in the instructions.

    Anyway, thanks to elf magic, the shins now clip into place. I don't know how it works, it wasn't like I planned. I guess I'll post pictures while I have him out. Done. I'm falling in love with this mess all over again. Why can't I quit you!

    I cleaned up his chest armor, figured out a ridiculous way to get it to stay in place without elastic, added mass to his shoulder armor because I took too much off, added pins to his thrusters so they'd click in place, shortened his gun a bit, changed the shin armor, made the foot armor smaller. I added apoxie in various places, this guy weighs like 5 pounds now, it feels like he has metal in his feet they're so heavy.

    dude how did you accomplish this? can you give me a step by step instructions on how to do what you did to prime? I'd appreciate it very much. And were did you get the parts for this mod?

    That train mode is looking good.
