    I originaly got the wings i used on Dust-off to use on Dirge but didnt use them in the end.
    So seeing as i still had a spare Ramjet i thought i might put them to use on a seeker of my own.
    I cut the wings to shape using Ramjets as a template & then cut off the lug that holds the original wings in place.
    I then cut a grove through the end and attached the new wings to the lug with glue & pins.

    So heres Dust-off

    Bio.
    Function;Warrior
    Profile;(from the data-tracks of Thundercracker)
    Now this is the kind of bot you want next to you in a fight,an experienced proffesional soldier & pretty smart too.
    The big problem with dust-off is when he gets ordered to do anything that he considers "outside" his function,give him a scouting mission & he will fly straight past an autobot position and not have spotted a thing,put him on security detail & every Autobot on earth could walk straight through the front door without a raised alarm.
    Its not that Dust-off is useless at anything exept his function,he just thinks its beneath him & most of all NOT HIS JOB,so he goes out of his way to make sure he never gets asked to do it again.
    Weapons/Abilities
    Dust-off is a skilled and deadly flyer,in jet mode he can reach speeds of
    1500mph & due to advanced Gyroscopic stabilizers mounted under his wings is able to cruise at altitudes as low as 5 feet.
    This has a devastating effect on everything that surrounds him,throwing up a maelstrom of debris that follows in his wake.
    He is armed with deadly pit-fire missiles,wich upon explosion emit an incendiarie gel that engulfs the target.
    Weaknesses;
    Dust-offs refusal to peform outside his function can be disastrous both for the Decepticon cause and for anyone unlucky enough to have to work alongside him.

    Absolutely bloody stunning.
    Extremely neat job on the parts transfers, and the paintjob is incredible.

    Nice bio too - I think we all know someone like that...
