View Full Version : Vehicles Custom Cobrastriker
03-24-2012, 02:31 PM
Here is a quick look at my custom Cobrastriker! I am NOT an experienced modeler, I'm not that great at painting and this is my very first attempt at customizing my favorite Joe vehicle, the Skystriker! I don't want it to look like Thundercracker but more like a Cobra influenced Striker. I still need to add details and Cobra stickers! I'm simply a Joe fan making my own mediocre version of a plane! This is my first post ever so I hope I did this correctly!

i think you did a great job period, never mind for your first attempt. are you planning on putting decals on it, like a rattler set or something?

Sick man, love that shade of blue, great job

That is a nice shade of blue and smooth paint apps! Looks damn good! Did you take it apart to paint this plane.

Thank you for the compliments guys, I really appreciate it!
Yes Crimson Gord, I plan to use some of the Rattler stickers for this plane. I was even thinking of painting a large red Cobra symbol on the back. Still trying to figure it out!
Yes Batman, I took this sucker apat to paint it. I've never done sucha thing before so there was a lot of trial and error! Thats why I used a reissue Skystriker I bought at Target.
There are lots of great customs on here! Glad to see many Joe fans making Joes looking even more kickin'!!

Outstanding job! Excellent choice of colors and finishes and very smooth/clean paint. This really looks great pre-decals.
Keep it up!

Looks awesome! I think once you have cobra insignias all over and the ten million "NOT A STEP" decals, it'll come into it's own and just look like a blue cobra jet, and less like Thundercracker.

what blue did you use?
Thats absolutley awesome
but I'm totally nicking it for my thundercracker...........

That is one slick jet sir. Any tricks to getting that blue so smooth?

Looks nice and clean. Some Cobra faction symbols would really make it stand out!

i like the black trim on the wings as well, something i usually do myself.
