Optimus Prime-Chrome & Metallic Like A Boss

My dream became true
i reached my goal of customizing with this figure
i love it <3
hope u guys love him too
in reality he looks much more stunning with his super high chrome metallic finish and the metallic colors, coudn´t catch it with my iPhone :/
no altmode pics because i won´t transform him, because of scratches in paint!
I took maybe 2 months of work for this masterpiece

Thanks to savio-prime for his super cool idea of the shoulder mod!!

Nice looking figure, very well done, sadly the pinstripes look a bit of (gritty) and some of the clear blue and red paint dropped and caused bubbles it seems, ESP on the side windows, but still nice, I could really deal with that ^^

But what really bugs me, that you only drybrushed the blue panels on his back a bit, they don't fit into the overall look

How did you do the flames? If these are the stencils I gave you the link to, I really miss the credit you told to give
Best regards

Chris

yeah dude i had much trouble with the pin striping :/
First i´ve used your stencils... but since i wanted to remove them i noticed their glue is too strong an it took all the paint off... 2 weeks of work for nothing.
but i thank you for that, doesn´t matter of the ruined pieces, tried to do it again and drew them with hand

The glue isn't to strong, add and then remove, don't wait till the pai t is fully cured, didn't you watch tutorials on yt?

Sad they they haven't worked for ya :-(

And btw: why havens you tried it on spare parts first?

Don't use new untested parts and techniques on current customs without a test on spare parts

Really sad that you had to start again on these parts, feel sorry for that :-(
Best regards

Chris

I'm really digging the chrome. Do you have a tutorial or something on how you did it?
