    FINALLY, this thing is finished! Okay, I started out with a Shadow Commander set but it was too much of a carbon-copy of the Magnus/City Commander armor, so I wanted it to be a bit different.

    So I decided to model it after R.I.D. Scourge:

    I used a red sharpie to color the cab windows red, then used a silver sharpie to touch up the grill, as well as adding some additional panel-lining along the side of the trailer (I did a bit of a silver wash on the top of the trailer as well). I also used some generic Decepticon reprolabels on the sides.

    Next, I took the Nemesis Prime base figure and painted his upper legs a gunmetal-gray color, and highlighted some parts in teal:

    I used one of those custom Nemesis Prime heads that were made from the guys at the sgcollect forums. Next, I used a Cybertron Cyber Planet key, painted it so the colors would match, and used it as a new chestplate. Then I took a few Faber-Castell artist pens and cut the bottoms off, and used those for the cylindrical pieces on the upper shoulder:

    I got a couple of custom shoulder launchers from Ptitvite and painted them, then I took two of the smokestack/guns and combined them into an uber-weapon:

    It took a while, but I think it was worth it. Whatcha think??

    Overall, I think you did some really nice work! :thumb 

    I think it was pointed out previously about the Planet Key. That's the one detail that I think is just completely out of place. Your panel lining looks really nice on the thighs, but why stop there? I think it's a bit stark only in that place in robot mode, but I think if you continue it throughout the whole robot, you'll have a winner! Also, your silver wash on the trailer is a really nice touch!

    Thanks for sharing! It looks like you're really having fun with this one! :thumb

    I have it, but we're in the process of moving and it's with a batch that's already at the new house.
