    Hey all,

    No fancy wing mods, just a straight repaint of Classics Ramjet into Thrust.

    WOW!! That paint job is rock solid! I love the matted look to the paint. Don't know if it's the camera or not. Either way, great job. Also, airbrush, spraycan, or brush?

    That is really good! I thought that to make that "Thrust" the wings are a must. You proved to me that the colors alone is enough to make it Thrust. Nice job.

    Very clean paint job her. In addition, the group shot of all your seekers is quite impressive. I am assuming that Dirge and Thundercracker are customs as well, but of their paint apps are very well done.

    What type of paints are you using? They are very clean and have a nice satin finish.

    I have to agree, I didn't he could look right without the wing mod, but you nailed it! Paint looks great too. Great job overall.

    Is there an :awshucks smiley?

    Anyway, I used Tamiya Maroon (TS-11) spray paint, Testors Flat Black, Rouge Red & Flat White. Finished with several coats of Model Masters Lusterless laquer. The dull-coat really faded out the cockpit as well, making it fit the darker look I was going for.

    I really wanted to do some kind of wing mod, but am vastly inexperienced at that type of thing, so I went with this option. It really beat all of my expectations to be honest.

    And yes, Dirge and Thundercracker are also customs, but Dirge is going to be re-done since I know what I'm doing now.

    Thanks for all the positive feedback, guys! :thumb
