    So this is the first Transformer (or toy actually) that I've ever repainted. So in part it was a learning process.

    I loved the Ironhide figure but was unhappy with the paint job so... I went at it.

    - Added blue for the eyes, and painted the outline of his eyes silver
    - Painted over the gold part of his nose to make it black.
    - Painted his lower jaw piece silver, opposed to the dark metallic blue that it was.
    - Painted the crotch silver
    - Guns painted silver. Going to eventually add more detailing to them.
    - Basically painted all the blue pieces silver and added silver a few other places.

    It's basically done, I'm going to clean up the edges on some places and I'm going to put some dullcote on it when I find some thinner to clean my brushes. Also I'm going to completely get rid of the added paint I put on his knuckles because I just couldn't get that done right.

    But uhh yeah.

    That'd be it.
