    I started making a Dirge using ckhtiger's how-to thread located here. http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showthread.php?t=145103

    One of the front wings, I sanded down too much to where it's extremely fragile ands thin, but hopefully the superglue will hold up.

    I hope it turns out ok. Ckhtiger....thanks for all of your help on this project! My hat's off to you!!

    Any suggestions or advice?

    I am using Krylon Fusion Patriotic Blue for the body. I haven't decided on his wings yet.

    Cool. Personally I'm not going to mod the wings when I do mine (have the Ramjet almost ready for paint and dye). As for the wings, I'm going to be using a gold paint for them (can't remember the specific name, but it's a Testors paint).

    On the parts you cut off, I would run a higher grit sandpaper over them to smooth out the cut lines. Other than that, you are off to a good start.

    Looks great and I'm sure you know that it will be best to remove those paint apps on the wings and legs before painting over it with alcohol... I did mine but I didn't do the wingmod, just a straight repaint.
