    Finished this weeks ago, but finally got my lazy ass to take some pics.

    Anyway, based it as much as I possibly could on the concept art. Also, one of the rare occasions I've completely hand-brushed a piece...and as such the yellow's a little thick, but, eh, this ones for my personal collection, so I'm much less picky.

    Colors used were MM Semi gloss black, MM Chrome Yellow, a custom matched red, a custom dark metallic grey/black, a lighter metallic grey, and some plain old silver.

    Very very very nice! I love it! I also love it bit more than mine, cause yours is cleaner, has more detail and fewer errors. I also love that you painted his chest windshield too.

    Really epic work dude!

    Was is a kup or original ironhide figure with added kup guns?

    Mine looks naked now in comparison. Great work curiously enough I'm surprised we haven't seen more people making Trailbreaker, Hoist and Scorch out of this mould. I think it would work quite well.

    great job! the best ironhide paint job I've seen so far, but just have a question:

    How did you remove the fake chest windshield?

    Because i was trying to do some touch up on the figure, and the one big thing i want to do is work on the chest windshield part, but halfway removing the 2 pins, i find out it seems like the lower corners of the windshield are glued in too? Since i'm not really an experienced modifier, i'm not too sure how the safely remove it now.

    Yep, that's what I did. I used the soldering iron method to remove the metal pins, and just pulled to remove the plastic pegs. They weren't glued very well on mine. Likewise, you could try pushing the pegs out from the inside wall, or just cut them off, and reglue the windshield later.
