    Actually I guess this is technically Scourge, not Nemesis Prime, but NP is less confusing in my opinion. I based this off of Formulas awesome NP, so really don't have alot to say about him. It really is too bad that this mold is so small. Another inch or two, and this would have been a really really great figure. Also, I'm a little bummed I couldn't find an oil tank any where, but such is life I suppose.

    Thanks guys

    @Gray: For things with hard edges, I used to use pointed detail brushes, but I've found recently that, for me at least, its easier to use a flat brush, water down the paints, and just lightly brush it from edge to edge. I'm not sure that description made much sense, but I hope you get what i mean.

    This guy is just badass. The paint job on the head just screams evil SOB. Wish hasbro would take heed and mass produce this color scheme.

    I do understand what you mean. Thanks for the info. My main problem however is with the paint not wanting to stick to that surface. I get a freaking "comb" effect where I can see all the brush strokes. I'm using Citadel paint with which I have never had any problems before.

    I'm thinking maybe it's the clear plastic?

    do you use any primer? I find that helps alot. I personally use dupli-color vinyl and fabric spray dye. You can get it at automotive stores that sell spray paint, and I find it works so much better than any krylon I've used, including camo. I've never had any serious chipping with it, and it dries and cures really really fast.

    black convoy is looking pretty good from this mould, it works far better than optimus at any rate.

    This looks awesome! I just finished up one for a commission, and changed some things here and there. I've had enough of this mold to last me for awhile.

    I like the flat paint for the alt mode. I'm doing that on a DOTM Voyager NP I'm working on now. Gloss is just a pain in the ass, man.

    Yes Sir, that mold was made for Scourge! Nice Custom! It's surprising how much more menacing he looks with that paint job.
