    his is a custom Hearts of Steel : Optimus Prime, built by Griffith of monolith productions, painted by me. 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.

    Simply beautiful. You need to upload these to your website so people can see them BIGGER. They will then truly appreciate them.

    Can I haz box art pose plz?

    The painting on this figure is phenomenal! Both Primes look great.

    And I love the pose of him standing atop the trailer - looks like it came right out of the 1986 movie... only if that movie were to have happened in 1886. :)

    Paint job is spot one, but

    I've always wondered how sturdy these feel?

    Does it transform easy? Does it feel like it is going to break?

    Great paint with the cab having the blue stripe. I mean I don't see the colors as a real train but you did some great work. I'd have to say that Nemesis is where it's at though as far as realism goes.

    It was my understanding that enamel or acrylic could be used on resin kit. So now I'm wondering what you used since I just ordered one. Anyhow keep up the good work!
