    This was the gift that I made for Altitron for the Procustomizers.com Secret Santa, a Classics Hound figure. Being that he's overseas serving our country, I felt it only fitting to send him this little Autobot.

    Hound was painted with HoK Military Green, Military Gray, Flat White and Flat Black. He was then detailed using custom mixes of Testors MM enamels, before a coat of Dullcote Lacquer.

    Thank you, Jbarb! I will attest that this custom is beautiful! Not only did Jbarb /nail/ the olive drab, the figure actually /FEELS/ like a real military vehicle. The paint is smooth and without flaw, but the texture is rough to the touch. It's great!

    I will post a picture of Classics Hound, Henkei Hound, and Jbarb's custom together tonight! I promise. :)  He will be getting packed up soon so I can't screw around. :p 

    Thanks again, Jbarb! I feel very privledged to own such a wonderful piece of artwork. You're an absolutely terrific artist and Hound is definitely a crown jewel of my collection.

    - Alty

    Not sure what it is, but Hound has always been one of my favorite characters. Great paint choice for a throwback G1 look.
