    I remade my Alt Ironhide. This time I used Kissplayers Convoy and then swapped out some of the parts with an Alt prime. I liked the paint apps in truck mode rather than the unpainted plastic. I also did the leg mod to make it look better and give more range of motion. By using the Kissplayers version over Alt version it gets rid of most of the blue connector parts.

    I took it apart piece by piece and spray painted each piece individually with Krylon Fusion, then after that dried with a clear coat. Then I put it all back together piece by piece. I labeled every single screw so I would know exactly where it went. Very time consuming but I do not regret it. Now if they go and make a Masterpiece Ratchet then maybe I would regret it just a little, even so I hope we get a MP Ironhide and Ratchet some day. Until then these work for me.

    It just so happens that I completed most of my work on mine several months ago, as I bought a KP Convoy at a really decent price in Junkion. He'll be one of the few WIPs I'll get to complete here soon.

    Good work man! I'm glad to see some Alts get more lovin' here recently :thumb

    Looks great! Also, that leg mod really makes such an improvement to the toy.
