    Very nice technical work! And an interesting personal take on the character's color scheme, with the red and silver details. I like it when people aren't afraid to break the mold a little....figuratively speaking.

    Didn't you use a Henkei Ramjet for this?

    Very impressive work, especially since it's your first known character custom.

    thank you guys, you honor me :) 

    I got henkei ramjet on christmas, and i hated the look and feel from the beginning!

    So i decided to put the chromy parts from henkei to my old awesome looking classics ramjet.

    Then i had a perfect ramjet and the ugliest henkei figure ever! At first i thought i should sell him over ebay, so i started looking for some prices for him at ebay and found a very overpriced henkei dirge so i made the decision to create my own version. And here it is, and i love him really :)

    Great job on Dirge, he looks more like the original than the Henkei/Classics versions!

    That is some fantastic work. I really dig the accents you added. Your paint apps appear flawless.

    That looks really nice. Everyone else beat me to everything I was gonna say, so I'll just leave it at that.
