    First post here on Radicons! I've only repainted about three figures before and none as big as this, so please be gentle on me :)  I am an amateur at best.

    I wanted to repaint Leader Ironhide as that denim had to go. I also didn't want to do the normal big cannons Ironhide either as I've not attempted to scratch build things before and actually really like his look in DOTM and the game where he's basically armed to the teeth as a weapons specialist should be.

    I gave him Voyager Prime's gun and borrowed another to strap on his back from a Spawn figure. The gun in his right hand is HA basics Backfire, of course.

    Hope you like! I think it turned out OK and has given me a boost of confidence to do more.

    Just wondering, did any paint affect the alt-mode at all?

    The smokestacks are now chrome and the undercarriage is less obtrusive being a more muted colour but the vehicle still looks untouched like in the movies, haha

    Very nicely done, especially with the paint chips on the edges. :thumb
