Wow..been a while since I posted anything! Mostly been doing commisions of repeated projects, but finally, something new...and I actually get to keep it! Man, I think out of everything I've done, my favorites are still Alts and BT's. And of course, thanks to Napjr, otherwise I wouldn't have known such an amazing knock-off even existed. Anyway, this started as (and largely remains) one of those new Hummer H3 remolds of Hound. I swapped the red forearms and shins with the black H3 (too be modded soon as well...not into Trailbreaker), painted the thighs and waist silver, and painted the upper arms, abdomen and hands in gunmetal. I also used gunmetal to paint over anything that was the original dark green color. I also removed the spare tire...mostly because it made the left leg look horrible, but also because it was clearly not an H3 tire. An Autobot symbol now mostly covers the leftover hole. The head was made from Alt Skids head, with an added larger mohawk, chin, rounded side thingies, and thinned cheek guards. The red was harder to match than I thought, with the added metal flake. To get the final color, I dipped my brush is silver, mostly cleaned it, then dipped in clear red. The result was a bright, deep red that had the same metal flake content of the H3's paint. I kept the weird gun it came with, but modded the handle so Ironhide could actually hold it. Heh....I think this write up actually took me longer than the whole project!
