Animated Jetstorm/Jetfire


Hunter Rose

Recommended Posts

The wingspan of Vgr Starscream is about the length of the Jetstorm Jet mode.

I tried to crop out just the part of the backpack on the back side of the hinge and then color corrected, this is what I got:

I think this works even for continuity since they have Starscream DNA in them.

I also think it would be interesting to do one bot with the wings swept forward, and one with the wings back.

 

I'm still thinking there hast to be a way to soften Jetstorm's edges... I'll see if I can digi that as well...

Unfortunately, the bot mode doesn't look great...

You can really see the size discrepancy here:

And actually, today I saw THIS GUY at TRU And I don't hate the idea of these engine wings on one of the bots... Except the wings are a bit flat and boring, also this wouldn't solve the gaping back problem.

So I played with it last night and these configurations all :fail

T!T Jetfire wings

CL-Jetfire stuffs

SW:TF Arc Trooper engines and wings

SW:TF Emperor - it does not help him look like a Viper at all.

E-Starscream Wings

C-Sideways

 

BUT I've dismantled him and soaked him in Hot Water.

 

Right now I'm going to go with the simple straight forward repaint of Orange Bits - to - Red Bits.

Also going to Black the insides of his body so the clear bits are less distracting.

 

I'm still debating if I want to bust up my TFA starscream for this project. The wings look really nice in Alt-mode but suck ass in Bot mode....

Was painting all night!

 

:argh for Red not photographing well... but you can see the difference in tone by checking out the true orange around his eyes.

The red is truer red IRl.

 

 

So I am using Tamiya Acrylics and they seem very scratch prone. I've had a lot of trouble finding a Paint that I like. I was using Testors Enamel on my last project and I hated it.

 

Is it just a mater of clearcoating? curing? Any suggestions?
