    Its not exact, but I mentioned that in the other upcoming project thread of mine. I can still get it to be close. I don't have a name for this one yet. Been juggling a few: Afterburner, Aftershock, Machwave, Stormshock, Flame-out, Hammerhead. I don't know yet.

    Anyway, here's a rough idea of what I'd have to do to pull it off:

    And here it is with its colors:

    The color is Tamaya TS-37 Lavender. Should be a pretty shade. Based loosely off the Purple seeker seen in the episode that has the seeker that Sunstorm was based off of standing next to the purple one, who was using a flame-thrower.

    It'll be pretty nice once you pull it off. Little more interesting then a straight up repaint (like the next two I'm doing).

    thanks. I agree, as I originally was just going to have 3 repaints, sunstorm, the previously mentioned slipstream, and this one. Once I was cleaning up my parts pile and came across the FA-18 model kit that still had its wings, I took a look and realized it could work. That idea lead to this one. This way I only have the original 3 plus sunstorm and black starscream sharing that body-style, and dirge and ramjet sharing theirs. Would've looked rather dull if I'd had even more straight repaints.

    I think a Starscream mould perhaps would be a bit better because of the longer nose for the F14. Else I think it looks pretty nifty. Name ?: ReHeat ! :D 

    However the Ramjet mould with those swing wings and one large vertical tailfin and you got = PANAVIA Tornado GR4 :D

    but its nose won't work. its far too skinny. By cutting the shoulder pylons way down, I can give the appearance of the nose still being longer, but maintain the thick girth of the F-14 nosecone. Basically, it will look like he's scaled down a little bit in comparisson to the other seekers, and that he'd be larger than them. I wish I could widen the legs, and I might. I could use styrene sheets to pad the inner calves and cut a new "hook" to latch them to the back of the torso in jetmode.

    Yea you're right. I looked at my Starscream and he does have a too skinny nose to make a F14, although the length would fit, but you're better of with the Ramjet mould :)

    Agreed ramjet you could get at walmart for ten bucks,Dirge on the other hand you have to hunt him down on ebay for hundreds of dollars plus ramjet is easier to re-paint

    Of course he's going to use Ramjet, but there may not have been a picture of Ramjet at the angle he used for the digibash.

    Cool. You now have me wanting to do something similar with a Ramjet. What scale model would be the right size for this? Depending on how easily I can get ahold of yet another Ramjet, and the needed parts. I might do something like this.
