    So a year or so ago Gundam Age started. I don't watch it but I do keep an eye out for Gundam model news. As soon as the G-exes was announced I immediately noticed the resemblance!

    So I ordered a 1/144 kit when it was released and kept it in the closet for a while. This week I decided to work it. I started out with a little photoshop but soon I googled and someone beet me to the punch. So I decided to use this:

    I'm not much of a photographer so bare with me.

    I removed all the possible seemlines, primed with Motip primer and 95% is airbrush work. Tamiya X-4 blue, XF-1 black, X-10 gunmetal, X-11 Chrome, X-14 sky blue, X-8 lemon yellow and X-7 red. Sealed it with a coat of future. (I might do one more coat!) I'm open to offers on this piece!

    Looks good, due to the less blocky nature it could be female. Elita Prima maybe?

    Nice job!

    I love this model, I've used mine to make Mobile Suit Prowl.

    WIP pic at the time.

    very cool idea, I like it. I think your completed version came out better than the 'shop :) 

    I'd love to see this model painted up as movie Prime :D

    Neat. Ever since the digibash was released, it was only a matter of time until someone made one for real. This one looks great, though i think that the silver waist could be better in a less reflective grey.

    Also, do your G-Exes' hand pieces stay on? Specifically the backs of his hands (not the fingers, the other bit). Mine seem to constantly fall off...

    yeah some times you just need to add a bit of cement on those to keep them together.

    Spray on some future. That will hold them tight.

    A nice custom, but I don't understand what made you see Optimus Prime from the mold. Other than having a mouthplate and a pointy head, it doesn't really have any resemblance to Prime at all.
