    Hi everyone, This is my first custom. I repainted autobot salvage to look like hound. This is my first custom so its not really all that great hopefully my next one will be a lot nicer. This is also my first entry so I hope the images shows. Enjoy, thanks for looking.

    Wow, I never would have considered that mold for Hound, but weirdly, it works. The head has a similar sort of "dual mohawk" shape, and he has dog-legs.... like, well, a hound. Nice!

    The truck looks really nice in that color, as well (and with the star on the hood).... and like others have said, your paint application is great. The only minor criticism I might have is the star on the roof; it seems redundant given the star on the hood. But that's a very minor thing, and just my own opinion. Overall, very smooth and slick-looking. Nice work!

    Very original take. Your paintjob is great too, smooth and the stars etc look great.

    He almost needs some kind of cannon in the bed though, to really give him the hound look.

    Still, I love it. And welcome aboard!

    Yes I'm trying to think of way to mount a cannon in the bed.
    Thank you for the nice comments everyone, I'm really motivated to do more customs now.

    That is a very nice custom. But I cant help thinking some detailing on the cehst and arms would make this this even more amazing.
