Customised G1 Evil Jetfire




















I have finally complete my MIB Evil Jetfire project after such a long long time. It first begins with the sourcing of materials like reprolabel, G1 Jetfire parts and accessories. The most difficult sourcing process would be getting the customized box. Luckily, I managed to get a local toy collector namely Han to do it. The G1 Jetfire I got came in a yellowing state so I had to overhaul it. The first attempt of spraying didn’t turn out quite well. So, I did some sanding before re-spraying plus hand-painting the toy with white and purple spray paint. There were a lot of trial and errors but fortunately the outcome was positive. It's like a dream comes true.

Congratz! The hangers are really good diorama. I still prefer the Autobot Jet fire. If the Evil Jetfire is black, that will look really wicked!

Good job there in spraying. I didn't know you can customize it. Cool stuff. At first glance, i thought it was the old macross jet fighter .Hehhe

You mean just like the stealth mode in the movie? I sprayed the hangers too to make it look more realistic

Real nice, looks like it should be a offcial relase just like an Optimus i once saw.
Really like the colour choice, evil decepticon purple, would look cool with my macross fighters.
Great box aswell, certainly looks the business.

LOL Jetfires a macross, I though Starscream was more Macross vibed

Dennis aka Katsuden said...

I think the master piece Starcream is very Macross alike. In the 80s, there were a lot of mould sharing. Ha! Ha!

where did you get the evil box?

Dennis aka Katsuden said...

It's custom made by Han , whom I got to know through enquiries after I saw his auction on custom made Jetfire box.

Harold said...

what purple paint brand did you use? is it acrylic or enamel? awesome job!

Dennis aka Katsuden said...

Just acrylic epoxy spray can. Some taping before spraying and hand painted some other small parts. Thanx for the compliments!
