    Hello all,

    Just to share Henkei Hound. He was modded (though poorly) with gundam fists. When transforming, you gotta pop out the arms as the fists cant be folded into the original compartment. Too big to fit. Also, thanks to FR for giving me an idea on the hand mod as described in my current signature. Hope to improve on the hand mods though. It's not the neatest and nicest unfortunately.

    Although military vehicles are not meant to be glossy, mine happened to be just the opposite. Haha. In any case, I did make some adjustments to compensate the glossy metallic look by deepening the green shades and adding some brown to it as well. Hound was painted using tamiya only. Hobby paints didnt seem to make the cut for this scheme. Also, do excuse me if I do not reply as I've been rather busy going for job interviews these past few days. Well, do enjoy the pics!

    Sabrina

    Don't be so hard on yourself, everyone has to start somewhere, and they don't look bad at all. My only suggestion would be to try and find some slightly smaller hands so that they can fit inside the arms. Other than the high-gloss finish, I LOVE the colors you used.

    I like the fact that it's a darker green, but i think it's too dark. Maybe just the lighting.

    Me thinks me want. The hands don't look too bad.

    Nice work, much prefer the G1-style colour choice on this mould, works much better. The gloss finish works well on the robot mode too, and the that's the important one, no? :)

    Thanks guys. Actually, Hound looks slightly 'fairer' in real life as opposed to the pics. The lightings a lil bit off. He's shade of green is pretty close to the G1 pictures that I've seen of the web. And yes! The robot mode's more important to me too! haha. But in any case, should the need arise, I could easily make adjustments for a dull matt finish.

    Oh, well, if it's just the lighting, then i don't personally think that you need to change it to a matte finish. He looks good right now.

    exellent work, your painting is my personal fav, as for the high gloss finish, military vehicles don't generally transform to giant robots with hologram's

    realy happy to see you turning your attention to the classic / universe lines
