    Classics Optimus Prime with the G3 Trailer

    This is a custom I did a while back, but never got around of taking any pictures. I originally repainted this figure when it was first released. I revisited this figure back when Cashanova made the stacks and gun set available to order on Shapeways.

    I really like the way this looks! I ordered his Blaster from Shapeways, but missed the smoke stacks, so I definitely want to order a set to go along with mine as well.

    The Ion blaster is stunning, but these smokestacks really add to the sculpt. What red paint did you use? It matches up nicely. After the Holidays are over, I'll be ordering those stacks for sure. That really does complete Prime's appearance in both modes. :thumbs2:

    The stacks are on a ball joint and there are different grooves to reposition the stacks between robot and alt mode. Cashanova has more pictures in this thread :) 

    Here is a picture Cashanova has in his thread in alt mode.

    It looks pretty good, love it!

    How did you achieve such a smooth look on the Shapeways printed parts without loosing the details?

    For once someone who hasn't ripped one of these guys apart! DEVASIA APPROVES! :thumb 

    Those smokestacks actually don't look half bad either, but I'm wondering just how delicate those things are to transform?

    Will do... I'll post some picture tonight after work.
    At the time I used black detail which took a lot of sanding then a good filler primer to get them smooth... I would love to try their new Frosted Ultra Detail the next time I order something from Shapeways... and thanks :)

    FUD is real delicate, the Frosted detail works nice and isnt as fragile

    I love this mod, partly because I was thinking about repainting my Classic Prime in a similar way (except I was thinking about keeping some yellow around the codpiece). What kind of color and remover did you use?

    Thanks... The red is Dupli-Color Flame Red, and I didn't use any remover except for sand paper.
