Those colors are a thing of beauty!
I have to say I really didn't like SIEGE Ironhide's head but in some different colors it looks absolutely cool IMO :
And I have to say I really like the teal windshield.
This is just liquid mask with gunmetal grey behind it but I'm thinking about actually painting his windshield like this. From the inside of course. It might not fit to the original A-Team van but as this is a Cybertronian version of it and it just looks fricking cool and suits the color scheme just perfectly, I don't really care.
This is amazing and inspiring! Also i just want to say, naming him A-ron hide? Legendary! (Also A-A-ron hide would have been acceptable lol)
"Sick, dead or mute A-A-ron."
I don't get the A-A-ron reference but naming him A-ronhide was just logical to me. Thanks, man!
He's actually been almost done for about a month now. I only need to add some details and a bull bar.
The delay is due to me having a lot of buisness trips at the moment and preparing to move into a new and bigger apartment where I will have way more and better options and possibilities to take pictures and customize. But I might take and upload some pictures of his current state at the end of the upcoming week.
@KibblerGrrrl I bought a very thin golden necklace for him but it's really flimsy and tends to knot. Once I almost ruined the paintjob of the head because it wrapped around his neck and I couldn't remove it anymore without removing the head again so I won't put it onto him anymore. It didn't look that good anyway because of his protruding chest/canopy and putting it behind the canopy doesn't make much sense anymore since I painted his windshield. But I might use that chain for my TF/TMNT Crossover Mechelangelo custom.
The windshield and the head look great!
Thanks! I hope I can show the rest soon.
ATeam Ironhide sounds cool! KITT from sideswipe does too. Or KITT from PotP windcharger since its the same car..
Looking forward to updates on A-ronhide!
So here's the promised update:
As I said before he's still missing the glowing details, bull bar and I need to make some touch ups where the print scratches off after I've removed the plastic that causes them.
The windshield looks way greener in-hand than in the pictures above. It really depends on the angle of the light and how well the camera catches it.
the need to preface the post with the A-team opening saddens me. Love the idea though and its looking good. It would be so awesome to get legit cross overs like this one, KITT, airwolf, etc. The 80's were so good.
Love the update, you are nailing it bro!
1. Why does it sadden you? It's only meant to tune people in the right mood.
2. Thanks! I appreciate every praise and constructive criticism. And I kind of have a crush on this mold. So expect more customs of it.
3. There's a Transformers/Top Gun crossover coming and we already got the Ectotron so maybe if more old shows and movies get new adaptations we'll get more crossover toys of those franchises.
Thanks a lot, warhawk!
I figured the video was to help the young lads know who the A-team was. thats why it saddens me. Cuz it makes me feel old lol. I saw maverick. gives me small hope. I almost bought an extra spinister make airwolf. If there was a good Kitt looking car i would have made him already.
Wheeljack could make a neat KITT.
God, I loved Knight Rider.
What about PotP Tailgate/Windcharger? Or Earthrise/Selects Runabout? The G1 version was a Pontiac firebird, too. But I am thinking about making a DeLorean time machine out of that mold including the hoverboard.
Maybe a good super mode K.I.T.T.
I feel that CW Blades/Vortex would make a better Airwolf. I like Runabout or Runamok for Kitt.
