    ok, so here is my newest, well... to you gus anyway, custom, Ironhide! I actually did this before my CC BB, but I never took picures of him cause I didnt have a camera. My Ironhide was really agravating me, and I just couldnt stand it anymore. Ive seen others repaint him in accurate colors to the movie, and they all did a great job, but I dont know that any one has actually gone to the legnths that I did. I repainted the entire vehicle shell with Tamiya gloss black and the replaced his stacks with a 1:32 diecast trucks that I found laying around in my garage. Nothing else is really tricked out on him, I did go over all the robot parts with brush on Gloss Black and dry brushed with Model Masters laqure Aluminum, I think thats what I used any way. The only thing that is missing is the 4X4 on the back end of the bed on either side, and the clear red over the tail lights which I will be doing.. eventually... As for the 4X4.. does anyone know where I could get a sticker of that design for the Topkick model? I cant find anything that I can use on it. Thanks everyone!! http://s275.photobucket.com/albums/jj320/OMEGAPRIME1983/?action=view¤t=022.jpg

    Well... I see that my attachments worked, I dont have all the pictures I took here, so I will leave you with the link to my photobucket so you can all see the rest.

    Those replacement smokestacks are great. If you do find the 4x4s and want to go for total movie accuracy, keep in mind they should actually sit over the wheels wells just about where they split for the transformation.

    By the way, your link just sent me to the main page for photobucket, so I had to search for "omegaprime1983".

    Try Reprolabels, they might have something you can use.

    I looked at the reprolabels upgrade set for Ironhide, but unfortunately the upgrade set doesnt come with the 4x4 stickers. I wish that they did Id snatch that set up in a heatbeat if it did.
