    Yep, another one.
    Nothing too revolutionary here, just thought I'd touch the figure up a bit and make some improvements to the paintjob, as well as de-headmastering him. Added details include grey shins to match the G1 Movie/Cartoon, silver exhausts and rims, the orange stripe on the spoiler, the wrist details and the forehead, as well as a couple of other bits here and there.

    Since the titanmaster is gone, the figure can now be transformed without needing to remove the head, and in my opinion looks a lot nicer now that the big grey box is gone.
    I used the back half of a classics Ironhide head along with salvaged parts of the titanmaster (mainly the chest and head for the ball joint) to do this, as well as cutting a hole in the top of the chest to allow clearance for transformation.

    It's not my idea originally, and I'm aware that it has been done before but I just felt like posting it anyway since it's my first time painting anything and wanted to get some feedback.

    Paints used:
    Red: Tamiya Acrylic Red
    Silver: Tamiya Acrylic Chrome Silver
    Orange: A mix of Tamiya red and yellow (beware, once mixed they dry very quickly and can be a pain to apply)
    Yellow: Tamiya Acrylic Yellow
    Grey: Tamiya Acrylic Gunmetal
    Clear coat: Tamiya Acrylic Clear
    (all applied via brush)

    Not bad! Paint is something this figure SORELY needed from the factory to begin with. Looks way better now. :)

    Reprolables: Please look at this paint-job. Dont give us any needless pieces. Just the basics.

    I keep thinking there’s got to be a way to make a flap of sorts to cover up that hole you make in his chest.
