    Had an extra Classics Ramjet around, and I needed more Classics Decepticons, so I figured why not make a Dirge. Dirge, like my Magnus before, was handpainted, as I find it much more fun, and somewhat easier than airbrush and spray paints. He isnt done yet, I just have a few touchups to do yet, like on the wings, and different scratches that occured durring transformation. Ill get veicle mode pics up later, but for now, here is a WIP pic(yes, my table is a mess), followed by another WIP pic, of the paint drying, and yet another WIP pic of the final bot.

    Nice work. I'm planning on doing a kitbash of him and Thrust. I'm currently trying to get a hold of a soldering iron to use to get the pins out so I can get some of my longer in progress bashes done. I've done some really quick digibashes of the final 3 seekers that I plan on doing. I might start a thread to show them to people. I can't wait to see what your's looks like when it's done. Peace out.

    I would have used different paint. Maybe something flat...not glossy. The Testors gloss paints are too thick. To me, a flat look, looks much better and professional.

    that there's pretty sweet. I've heard people saying they wanted to paint ramjet into the season 2 seekers, I just didn't think it'd actually look good. what were the specific colors you used?

    Aside from the Testors glossy look, there is one little thing off about him. I think it's the fact that Dirge doesn't look "Classic"-y. As seen on the other seekers (or, heck, any other Classics figure), Hasbro took certain liberties in paint apps and designs so that they looked fresh but still familiar. With Dirge here, it all looks accurate but very boring.

    Still, I do like what I see, and the kind of concerns I brought up are more irrelevant in this case, since you have plenty of time to perfect your craft and it was made to fulfill your own need.

    Steller! You should add some more paint aps on the shoulders or something so it doesn't look so plain though.

    Really cool...

    A bit on the too glossy side for me...but that could be from the camera flash though...I really like him...

    If Hasbro doesn't give us the remaining seekers...I plan on kit bashing them as well...
