I've been wanting to make this one for awhile now. The Ironman 6 inch line came out with a Crimson Dynamo and while I cannot claim to be the know it all in the Marvel Realm, I have to say I didn't recognize that version (not sure on the Titanium Man either.)
Anyway, I started with a X3 Juggernaut and used Green Stuff for the sculpting. The face mask is from Xorn with Green Stuff. Ground down the head to get the mask to fit and trimmed the Juggernaut helmet to more closely resemble Dynamo's. I did a base coat of flat black Testors spray and then a couple of coats of red Tamiya, sealed with Glosscote.
I really liked how this one turned out. The flat black added some texture I was not planning on and it turned out kinda cool.
Comments and critiques as always welcome.

Agree with emmbro30, sculpt looks really imprtessive but application of paint flattens it. I'll accept that we might not be seeing it all in the photo but it really could use some detailing to bring out your sculpt.

Looks good, but might I suggest either a wash or dry brush some black in to break up the red a bit?
Sculpting looks good and I think adding the black would make the figure really pop!

It does not show up very well on the photos but the flat black base does come through a little. I think the flash may have brought out the red a little too much. (My photo skills need some work. I see the flash also brought out some spots that get missed.) I'm working on an Ursa Major now and was going the same route with the black base and then brown. I was thinking of trying to dry brush a lighter brown to lighten it a little. I still have not figured out a wash yet.
