    Looks good so far. I'd say for vehicle mode, remove the back seats and maybe put a small stretcher in? If possible, it could even be used as a gun!

    here's the look i want to achieve. maybe contrasting white shoulder then red then white arms again. cut the vents on the head then maybe paint it red.

    QFT! Everything looks good man! Though I'm not a fan of using the Scion for either Ratchet or Ironhide, your work is looking good! Looks like you're going for a seali_me repaint of Ratchet as well while you're at it :lol 

    seali_me, don't mind pk, he's an INFIDEL!!!

    the red stripes and red crosses. i love how the subaru head goes with everything else, especially this last one.

    i think i should have started painting white awhile back. i REALLY learned a lot with this one.

    As a suggestion to those who hate painting white, try some white primer. Tamiya makes a great one (goes on thin--if you apply it right--, doesn't mask detail), and it makes top-coating a cinch.
    Looks good, seali.
