    Hi Everyone,

    Had some time to put up some new pics of SS Long Haul. I ended up using 3 different green colors to get a shaded effect. I do like it, hope you do too. After taking the pics I noticed some green was showing through on the front of the truck so I went back and cleaned that up.

    The red on the missile tips is rubbing off with each transformation, which is why I didn't want to transform him back to truck mode just to retake a couple pics. If anyone has any ideas of what paint to use to stop / limit that from happening I would love to know what you do.

    Thanks!

    Great custom:thumb , really like the shading effect even if it is not movie accurate. Can wait to see your Long haul... um, you have the wrong name for your figure on this thread. It is Long haul who's green and turns into a dump truck, not High-tower. Anyways, I like how someone is making an interesting, abstract-ish version of the usually dirty and rusty constructicons. Can't wait for more pics of other figures and, in the end, your Devastator.

    [Edit] Congrats dude, now it says Long Haul and not High-tower in the thread name!

    Thank you. I just asked the mod to change the title. I was working on Hightower, then took a break to put this up and whammo...Wrong name. Just finishing up Scrapmetal & HT then onto Mixmaster!

    Love it , am tempted to paint mine up but doubt itll look as good and i'd have to do all 8.

    Going to give him any weathering or dirt up the tires?

    I'm not sure. I tend to prefer cleaner looks but if i did it would be very slight. I have the Devil Savior set preordered and that looks like it will have weathering already so I may keep this one clean.
