    Hello!
    I tried a few different figures for Trailbreaker, but they didn't quite work! I finally went along with a Classics Ironhide, although I find the leg transformation a bit of a pain, albeit quite clever.
    So, Classics Ironhide. A new head, G1 Trailbreaker scanner/radar and a missile launcher that I've attached opposite the head resting slightly above the shoulder. Missile launcher and radar slot in nicely to carefully drilled holes.
    All enamel paints used, black, silver, light blue and a dark royal blue with new Autobot logos.
    Transformation very smooth, and finished with high quality varnish/gloss.

    Nice! Can we see a close up on the head though? I can't quite make out what his head looks like.

    Looks like a G1 Topspin head with the antennae trimmed down.
    Nice job!

    Thanks very much for the comments. I'll try and get more, and better pictures posted soon. Not a good picture of the head, sorry, but yeah it's a Topspin G1 head, after some work with a file. Flatened down, painted gloss black with a dark blue visor.

    Excellent work with Trailbreaker! I like that you used Ironhide, the wolverine crossover truck is just too big. Any thoughts on modding the rear bumper to stay out in robot mode, filling out his chest and to distinguish him from Ironhide?
