    At long last I finally got around to finishing this guy up!

    Those of you who saw my WIP Thread know that I started out on this nearly two years ago! I woulda had it done back then, but college takes up a fair chunk of your free time and thus I've only been able to work on it here and there over the summer(s), but that is of no consequence! Now for the picture dump!

    Some notes:
    -Yeah, I know, the paint is extremely quick and dirty, I'm not especially proud of this one, I just wanted it done. The parts were rattle-canned their base colors with minimal dis-assembly (and minimal patience) and all the detailing was done completely free-hand with cheapie brushes, so try not to hold the messy lines against me :wink: 
    -I owe some inspiration credit to Stormvapor's tetrajet made out of the same original mold, a link to his thread can be found in my WIP thread (I'm too lazy to copy paste)
    -the head and wing joints were designed by me and 3d printed through shapeways
    -the null rays were graciously donated by my Robot Heros G1 Starscream
    -the base mold is energon blackout.



    Thanks! Let me know what you guys think!

    Went back into your WIP thread, and I'm very impressed with how this came out. Don't knock yourself too hard, as an artist you will be your own worst critic
