    This my custom of Slingshot. It isn't a Harrier but it is a similar type of Jet and only needs some Reprolabel wing stripes. It doesn't combine but it does have a leg mode, but the ankle is very unstable. Since Silverbolt isn't designed to combine then why would Slingshot need to be a foot, anyhow. (He also has the attachment piece to be an arm and the golden car radiator from the young Sheik)

    The face is a little basic compared to the high detail of the Dirge/Jetblade mold, but at the same time, it's unmistakably Slingshot. Good job.

    Looks good. Although, Slingshot was white in G1 and he was an arm not a leg.

    He is white but the pics look purpleish. It is the white/grey plastic with an amber cockpit. I don't know why unless the background caused it or the fluorescent ceiling light. Also, I remember slingshot as the right leg but they were all universal.

    hopefully these pics look better. Why do I have to adjust color, now. Isn't it supposed to get easier, the more you do something? Thanks for your comments
