    This is a custom Hearts of Steel : Nemesis Prime, built by Griffith of monolith productions. Its about 300 parts. This was one of the most difficult paint jobs ever for me, I had to use special resin adhering paints for the base coats. From there, I coated with lacquers and detailed with Testors Model Master enamels. I added some spikes onto him to give him a more "Nemesis" and evil look.

    Excellent paintjob, and good to see one of these kits out in the wild. Griffith did a fantastic job.

    Holy crap man your HOS Nemesis Prime looks so freaking amazing!!! :drool:  All the detail you put in to him, the rivets, the copper trim, brass looking gear pieces, and the smooth, flat black finish that makes him look like wrought iron... :bowdown:  just WOW! I was really amazed by Sabrina's sweet paintjob on him earlier this year, but man, I think you just topped it in my book! (No offense Sabrina, yours is really amazing too just in a different way.) I can't believe how awesome he looks in black instead of red and blue. It really gives him that steam punk aesthetic. Your usual highlights and stuff also really bring out the great quality of Griffith's mold which, even unpainted, is a brilliant work of genius. I'd say that even though you had to go through the trouble of using that special resin-adhering primer, it was well worth the results.

    thanks guys.

    so you guys like the color scheme? was a headache getting suitable colors for this style figure. Some have said he should have teal/red, though I really don't see teal working well on this old school looking locomotive, and red, well, I did the red pipe on the trailer part, and the eyes. I just don't see the window of space for more red on him.
