    Here is my first custom, done about 7 years ago. Mostly a head swap and repaint. This guy has a LOT of rub points. I studied tutorials for about 7-8 months before i decided to tackle my first custom. I hope everyone enjoys, and please feel free to leave comments and critisisms.
    Over the next couple weeks and months i plan on posting more of my customs.

    I was literally looking up the Hulktank just about a hour ago. So weird.

    That is some great work, there. The painting on the hands really sells it for me. I have to ask; how tall is he? I can never get a good scale picture.

    This is really good!! I just put my Hulk tank back together after it served as limbs for Superion Maximus for a few years. What was required to do the head swap?

    DashCourageous, I used the marvel crossover Hulk and Armada Smokescreen head.

    Cortexitron, I don't remember how I swapped the head, I'll look at it tonight and see if there's any clues.

    Arsnof, I'm going to guess maybe 5-6 inches. I can measure when I get home. I have an extra one in my parts bin if you ever need one

    Again, this custom was done 7 years ago. I love the Hulk tank for his hulking proportions. With the Gobots that I've done, I wanted to give more outlandish alt modes for the characters that didn't have straight up Earth modes. I think the head works so well because it sits so low, giving the impression of large upper traps. Kinda gives him a Juggernaut look, in my opinion.

    Thanks a lot for all the positive feedback gentlemen!

    Cortexitron, I removed Smokescreens head, and dremeled a socket for the hulks neck ball.

    Arsnof, the Hulk stands at about 5 7/8 inches, probably a full 6 with the hulk head. I didn't dig out the extra that I had.

    Autobot prowl, thanks for the kind words

    Funny how that mold in those colors really reminds me of a 40K/StarCraft Space Marine. Excellent work.

    The Hulk tank may have been the best thing that came out of that crossovers line.
