    Presenting ROTF Ironhide. I kinda modelled him after the CGI Images online. Hope it matches! :)

    nice painting as always, but his exhaust pipes should be chromed, and i don't remember a red stripe, the robot parts being gunmetal do set the piece off nicely though, again great job, but that has become expected.

    I tend to echo this here for the most part. Also, the smokestacks are higher/slightly bigger for the on-screen version (I remember I was a bit upset about them when I got the first one).

    In terms of the overall paint applications, I wished that the Premium Ironhide looked like this (sans red stripe). Overall, great work :thumb

    Wow. That looks great.

    Although i never really did understand how you did that black. I remember all the others were just clear colour over silver, but what do you use for black?

    It's actually gloss grey layered like mad. I call it clear black, Dun recall hobby or tamiya having clear black.

    Tamiya has "smoke", same sorta thing i think.

    As for the custom...honestly? Not your best. The robot mode is fine but the alt mode is really lacking the usual look of quality that you have. Plus why didnt you paint on the tail lights and whats with the red stripe?

    Oh yeah. I have yet to address that stupid stripe. I painted it a month back. Have you seen the original toy? It had a red stripe. I followed it. I'm still on the fence as to whether I should remove it.

    Smoke won't work for a big section of colour, it's beter for tinting windows or grime.

    So, do you still need the silver basecoat before the gloss gray?

    There's another way it could get better: If it were sent my way. :D 

    I find that it's tough to get it to paint as a solid section of colour. Maybe if i apply many layers...

    I havnt paid much attention to rotf ironhide after i found out there was no improvements amde to the robot mode over the original toy. That and its color scheme is retarded. Ironhide is black in the movie, not light grey. I forgot about the stripe. It should be easy to paint over though, if not sand it down or use rubbing alcohol on it and just re-do those panels.
