    Well, the dam has broken I suppose! I've got customs flowing once again and thanks for all the patience of commissions.

    Here we have movie Ironhide in what I feel, once painted, is one of his most faithful versions, the Deluxe scale figure. It also goes nicely with the deluxe scale Crankcase.

    He was painted by hand using Testor's Model Master paints, and GW clear flesh over silver for that movie-copper look, and the tail lights are clear red over silver for that metallic appearance I love. <3
    3 stages of drybrushing and highlights brings out the most of the excellent mold.

    His odd box cannon/drone was replaced with the cannon you see in the images.

    Finally a coat of Pledge Future was used for shine and durability.

    Thanks for your time!
