    Update: Please check further down the thread for Altmode and Transformation pictures



    Hi, I Just wanted to post some pictures of my first attempt at a custom figure.

    I thought I would repaint a spare Classics Ironihde I had knocking around and have a go at drybrushing (after reading a few online guides!!).

    I think that next time I'll try airbrushing a primer and topcoat to get a smoother finish, but I'm quite happy with the drybrush effect on the "inner workings".

    Anyway, here it is....

    Thanks guys, I'm well happy with it (apart from that lumpy red from the brush).

    Hmmm, what next?

    Great job mate, improved that awful figure no end! I can't see the 'lumpy' bit you mentioned, but I find thinning out the paint and doing more coats prevents that.

    How about Galvatron next? Everyone wants to see him in animated movie colours and it's nice to see people improving the less popular figs.

    That's a great first try, man. The dry brush work looks great, especially on the shoulders. Keep it up.
