    Hi folks,
    Had this no BS bad attitude guy laying around for a while and decided to share it with all of you.
    Regular old Recon Ironhide fron ROTF. Just didn't like the color scheme, so took the opportunity to mess with it a little bit.
    Gave him a ruby red metallic color, added weather effects, dry brushing and chromed some of the parts on the body and armor. Hope you like.

    Agree, Ironhide looks totally better in red. I don't know why the movies could do it but oh well. Your paint job and the weaponry is top notch.

    Very nice work!

    One suggestion, and I only say it because someone told me when I did my first red Ironhide. The flat area on his rift arm cannon, is supposed to he his doors, and should be the same red as the truck mode. Minor detail. This is really nice!!

    Not sure why I didn't leave a comment here when I saw your thread initially, but this surpasses the original in every possible way, the subtle details look to play a huge role in that, and your 2nd photo is amazing.

    I'd totally go back & match that part Hotwire is talking about because I know it'd go a long way towards letting the robot mode shine the way his alt mode does.
