    ME TOO! Mine is drying up. I don't think I'll add stickers. It will just be red.

    Were you able to get the cockpit gimmick to work with him sitting in it?

    Wow, didn't realize this thread had popped back up! Glad you guys liked mine enough to make ones of your own. That looks great, Seali-me, love the M.A.S.K. symbol. I've been thinking of doing the same thing, but haven't yet. In case you guys are interested in the stickers, here's the pattern I made.

    Make sure to right click and "Save Target As" to get the good version instead of just "Save Picture."

    Kind of? I have to get him exactly right in there, and he fits slightly better in the rear cockpit, but I can get it to transform with him in either one with enough fiddiling. Since I only have the one guy, though, I usually just pull him out to change modes.

    I just got my Matt Trakker. That Thunderhawk custom blows me away. I'm going to track that car down myself. What type of paint did you use.

    It's Krylon Fusion red. I love their fusion paints because they really do dry to a good, durable surface (though they do have a fairly long curing time). I've never had any chipping problems with anything I've painted with them.

    Thanks for the info. I found the car on Amazon on sale. When I get some free time I'm going to hook it up.

    That looks brilliant. Unfortunately MASK was before my time but I've recently discovered it.

    Hope you managed to find that extra trakker figure.

    Now all you need to do is turn the Ironman rolling battle headquaters into the Rhino
