    Updated with new pics

    Updated with early Bot mode and new head


    Been wanting to do one for a while now and Recon Ironhide just screams Trailbreaker to me.


    Scratchbuilding a Shell to give him a SUV look.(will split up and attach to legs and back)

    Will get a full G1 style paintjob.

    Very early custom but will update when able to.

    original choice of the mold. Seeing the 'sleeper' back there helps to view him as Trailbreaker.

    Looks like a good concept! You might want to taper the back and work it into the body more. As it is, coming off a bit camper shell- which is also an option.

    Wasn't that what Trailbreaker was? A chick-magnet with the wrong pole outward. Yeah, Sideswipe and Sunstreaker got it good, Countach and all, but Ironhide and Trailbreaker got pretty lame family-vehicles...

    Still trying to make a shell extention but i have yet to find any kind of model like the toyota 4wd hi-lux.


    A build it kit or die cast would make it easier to cannibalize.:(

    Update.

    Added the new head.

    Took a Inferno head and squared it off with a solid visor.

    Used a chrome silver on all the bland silver parts


    Casted a Shell that will connect to the back of the legs and cover the wheels in bot mode

    Weapons Weapons and more Weapons(2 arm cannons,2 rifles and debating on shoulder mounted missiles)
