    Finally got around to this guy over the weekend. The ladder is from a G1 Hot Spot KO

    Painted him with testors enamels. Tomorrow, I'll touch him up, and add an autobot decal.

    Sorry for the dark pics, one of my bulbs blew, and I only have 1 working light right now

    and BH will def. be contacted for that, lol.

    Inferno is one of my favorite figures from the universe line nd you made him even better. Great job. The ladder is a nice addition to him as well.

    I really like this piece. The ladder, as iobvious as it is, i would've never thought of. However, i'm really not a fan of the fact the two rectangular block things (y'know, the one that causes his head to spring up) have been painted silver.

    However, the deail you've put into the wheels is just awesome. Also, have you drybrushed or basecoated the whole thing in black? Because it almost seems like the red paintjob is dirty or something, especially in the 3rd picture. Is it just the lighting, or was it deliberate? Coz if it's deliberate, i wanna know how you did it!

    thanks for the comments everyone. I'll buy some more lighting bulbs tomorrow, and I'll add the autobot decal, and I'll post some final pictures, and hit up the gallery,

    yea, i'm not sure what to do with the lights,

    i primed the whole figure in a flat black, and airbrushed a dark blood red base coat. i then drybrushed him with a shade of lighter red, and then another shade of an even lighter red.

    and i drybrushed all of the back parts with silver.

    Not bad. The matte black windows do bug me though. I think you could've at least gone with a smoke grey coat on the inside of the windshield or something.

    Do love the ladder mod though, it's one I'm trying to figure out for my Henkei Inferno at the moment.
