    My first! I've only tried painting in a few details before so I was afraid that I would be in over my head, especially compared to some of the great customs here. I wish the black was a little better as far as the masking and uniformity of the paint coverage, but overall, I'm very happy with the results. This of course was just a TFA Ironhide. This appearance was seen in the first few minutes of Transwarped, the first episode of season 3, and in the first Allspark Almanac book. The 2 Allspark Almanacs are terrific resources for character art, if anyone needs a good reference.

    That is awesome. I was thinking of doing this with Chrome paint but can't find another one in the stores and I don't want to mess up and lose the one I have.

    You are a brave man indeed. ;)  Fantastic work. :D

    I've been wondering what this would look like. I've been debating whether to get it chromed or to paint it silver like you did. I thought the silver fit the look better compared to the rest of the line, and this proved it. very cool. your black paint apps, while i don't think are accurate, really help the figure. And now I think i'll do the same. that is....when i can FIND an Ironhide. :(
