    Got my hands on the RoTF Dirt Boss early and wanted to make him look like one of the Constructicon brethern (and similar to his appearence on TFA)_

    Based him black and then went to drybrushing various sections of his body with clasic constructicon colors green and purple. He has various tones of silver in spots and I added red to make for some robotic pieces while giving it a more toony feel to it.

    In fork lift mode I added details in the reverse lights, headlights, and a worn look to the entire piece, mainly on the fork itself, which double as movie Deadpool style arm blades. I also used 2 tones of brown to give the seat a leather look.

    Hope ya like him I should have more RoTF figs coming soon!

    Very appropriate. I kind of expect to see a lot of folks doing similar things with this mold.

    Lovin' the colors, would've liked to see a red or yellow on this one & also wanted to ask a question about painting...

    Is it possible to drybrush black, then a metal (either gunmetal, chrome, rust - whatever...) and THEN brush on the color layer, that way you'd ensure a more realistic color scheme?

    And this is not a commentary about the job you did here - I love this custom, I'm just askin for myself...

    yes, you just have to to have a really steady hand because if not it looks really messy. just remember to touch up the rust a little to make it realistic

    I hadn't planned on getting any of the scout class figures, but I think you just changed my mind! The color scheme looks great on him and I love how you put so much detail into such a small figure! Great work
