    I wanted to try and be as faithful to the Botcon release as I could, while still adding
    my own little change and style.

    First thing you will notice is that I did not include the winglette's on Dirge, I really
    like the kickdowns on the wings so I left them in place.

    Second thing you will notice is I went with full size tailfins on the wings, I really like the way it turned out.

    Other then that, the only other thing I changed was using Gold on the wings instead of a Yellowish Orange.
    I tired to copy the details more or less exact to the Botcon release.

    I had planned of using this as my entry for the Kitbash contest in honor of Vector,
    but I've decided to come up with something better for that.

    Alt mode pic in a few days as touch ups are still drying. Also I still need to knock the pins that hold the feet, in all the way. I forgot to do that. :lol

    Another great job, bro! I'd drop some cash on that if it were on the shelves. Keep up the great work!

    I am using gold on my Dirge as well. I didn't mean to as I thought it was just a gold color, and not metallic. Now My Dirge is 24K gold! LOL Good work on yours!!!

    Thanks guys.
    I'm still learning all the little tricks of the trade, only my 4th bash.
    I had my reservations about the tailfins, but they turned out better then I had hoped.
    I really took my time on all the details.
    All & all I'm very happy with how he came out.
    Now I just hope I don't screw him up for the Alt mode.

    Great work! When I finally get around to do mine, I hope it turns out atleast half as good as yours.

    I think a couple of us are lining ourselves up to make our Dirges and/or Thrusts to go with Ramjet. I know I've got mine all torn apart waiting for some spare time.

    I really like how yours turned out, NP. Definitely waiting for the jet mode pics.

    Thats a mighty fine looking Dirge mate! My only gripe is the bot mode paint apps. Some areas look rough and splotchy, the paint isnt very well applied in those areas, but they are tiny areas so only anal detail-freaks like me will notice.
