    View attachment 27174395 Here's a project I've been wanting to do for a while now, and Generations Thrust finally hit my neighborhood.

    Why use this ROTF figure? Well, the jet mode is already a Harrier, the bot mode has the big shoulder look (like a seeker), a cone-head (of sorts), and- most importantly to me- legs on the wing.

    Plus, I thought this would be a nice variation of this mold.

    Used: Thrust, the jet (name escapes me), and Blazemaster. Still to do: add Blazemaster's tail rotors under the side thrust engines, cleanup, and paint. Yes- I am thinking of the traditional Thrust burgundy and black.

    For the most part, I'm happy with it. The robot's not that different, but the jet is.

    Looks awesome, I like the concept. My only suggestion would be to move the turbines a bit up the wing closer to the body (pretty much right where his guns are now) and add the wing tips back on...
    I'm excited to see more of this, looks like an awesome project...

    Dirge... ya, that's it.

    As for the wing tips- there's no such thing any more. They are in itty bitty pieces.
    :) 
    Besides- I like how they angle down right now. But thank you tho.

    Aerodynaimcally speaking, the angle of the thrusters would cause all kindsa havoc but I REALLY like the way they look cantered like that.

    that's going to be damned cool, I like the execution thus far:) 
    you could also make the tail fins a bit larger to give her better proportions, and maybe angle them down(the horizontal part, that way you can have the vertical stabilizers angled upward and out :)  . Totally up to you, just yapping here).

    Will you be doing Ramjet too?

    Thanks for the comments. If I have the courage, I'll consider tweaking the rear stabilizers...

    As for Ramjet... the idea crossed my mind- but I wouldn't want to leave Dirge's wings the way they are- I'd want tl make them longer and right now, I wouldn't know how to do that.:eek:

    The more I think about this one, is the more I want to see it made into a fan character with a completely new color scheme :)
