    I finally got off my ass and finished Thrust and Dirge, as well as the green one I've been wanting to make.

    First up, Dirge-

    Pretty pleased with him. The brown isn't perfect but it's close enough.

    Next, Thrust-

    The red is way too bright for him but it's all I've got.

    And the green dude.

    I think I went a little overboard on the trim and colors, but I just couldn't settle on a good scheme with green as the base.


    And here's the original 7.

    And the full fleet.

    Those LOC seeker fleets are so much fun to compile. Your repaints look great, dude. Excellent work on the green fellow...I have no clue what to name him, though.

    Thanks guys! :D  Glad you like 'em. Sad thing is I still have one more Sunstorm and a Starscream I'm turning into Ramjet, so there's going to be more eventually.

    those turned out realllly well :)  don't change the green one, the details look swell. The way I got my Thrust to be Maroon, was I dyed him with RIT Golden yellow, then again with crimson. it was just barely lighter than an exact match. I've a suggestion? on your Dirge, you should put some paint aps on the brown wings.. the original had red and white stripes on them, it really breaks up the monotony. I used red and white on mine and it looks great!

    Thanks! I'm thinking about slapping a faction sticker on each wing for the coneheads, but the stripes are a good idea too. Gotta plan out where they'd go though.

    Most excellent work. You do an awesome job. I wish I could get a hold of some Starscreams. Sunstorm isn't hard to find for me, but he is limited in what colors you can dye him. The green one is just simply amazing. Theres so much detail. Maybe I can suggest a name for him, how does Fallout sound to you?

    :lol  Hey HTS has/had Sunstorm in stock so I just grabbed a handful from them.

    Thanks! I paint all my stuff, so the base colors don't generally matter. The one exception was Skyblast since I wanted to use the metallic red that Starscream already had, and painting him white is easier than painting Sunstorm white. Fallout's not a bad name, but I'm not sure he's neon enough for it. :p
