    I have two DOTM Guzzle figures and was thinking about repainting him to match more of his idw look. Im not a huge fan of the original paint

    Started painting him, not too much but just something to pass time.

    I'm really liking the way he's coming along

    I'm slowly doing this as I don't have too much free time during the week.

    The brown I'm using is coming out looking good imo.

    So what I intended to do was to repaint all the green in tank mode to this brown to more match, then I was going to paint the treads all black and the wheels silver.

    I also planned on using epoxy to fill in the toes and make a foot.

    My biggest concern is the original hands. I dislike them and want to redo them but I'm not sure how to go about it. Also not sure if I should try to make his barrel a little longer and wider or leave it as is

    So I did some research and found out this is an A1 Abrams tank, and I was wondering should I paint the wheels inside the tread black like they are on some tanks or go with the brown I'm using

    Hey guys sorry i haven't posted any updates to this. I started working on a Pyro and just finished him up, gonna start working on this guy again.

    I'm wondering what I can do about the hands and feet? I was thinking of epoxy the middle of the foot so he doesn't have toes. But I'm not really sure which route I should go
