    Hello Community!

    From the first day i saw Classics Starscream, i was a fan of the seekers (only one and a half year ago!). My favorites are Starscream, Dirge, Ramjet and Thrust.

    I've found ramjet cheap at ebay in classics version - very nice, but i really disliked the burners and rearwings.

    at christmas i got henkei henkei ramjet - what an ugly guy, but wait: he has got very cool looking chromy rearwings.

    so i decided to change these parts (not easy, cause the legs are glued....)

    Before:


    After:


    Now i've descided i want to kill the "Ugly-Guy", and made my Version of Dirge (I wanted him to buy, but WOW this little guy is soooo expensive!)

    I cutted the rear mini-wings and glued them on the top.

    i cutted the rearwings and modiefied and glued then as the flipper on the frontwings.

    imho it looks nice :) 

    Look here for the changes, i hope you like it too:

    Heh... for a second, I thought you just flipped his wings upside down... which is in itself sort of brilliant. :) 

    Lookin' good so far.

    I did the same thing with my Galvatron. It makes both figures look better.
