    I thought that too for a minute there Solrac333, and I was thinking he was repainted into Hotspot cause the gray looked a little light blue-ish. Looking at the full pics he looks so much like Slingshot. I love his paintjob, the gray(not light blue) looks like a stock air force jet color or something. It makes this mold look so much better. You did an amazing job on this guy and i can't wait to see all the rest!:thumbs2:

    well, first i removed the cone head parts, then i filled up part of his face with putty, particularly the cheek vents. then i sculpted a mini-dome just above the forehead do make the homage more visible. :)

    Final pics really look Awesome. I felt the stock Dirge looked rather meh to me because of the bastardized jetmode, but your repaint brings back a sense of
    realistic style.

    Now that is just brillant!
    I would have never thought about using Dirge as an Aerialbot!
    and the minor things really make this one stand out :thumb

    Yes please do tell. The head mold was the only thing stopping me from buying this mold. You totally sold me on wanting it now though. I need more decepticons.
