    This is a commission project from a fellow collector. Knowing the Wonderfest's Black Convoy being canceled, he wanted this to be made instead to complete his prime collection.

    He wanted this to be the same as the Wonderfest version.

    Looks good, but you have many fingerprints on the windows. Is he made from a knockoff Prime?

    Thanks.

    LOL, just notice the finger prints. Wipe it off now.

    Painted from TFU Nemesis Prime, referring of wonderfest's black convoy.

    Isn't it Convoy: Black Version, since he's still a good guy? *chuckles*

    All in all, a really nifty job. I've been considering whipping one up once I get my extra black Primes in. =P I'm curious how you went about the shoulder emblems.

    Man, I owned one, and you did a great job on this! Saved your friend a lot of money trying to find that prime. Good Work!

    This is amazing!!!! :drool: 

    I have to ask...how did you make the windows red? dye? marker? paint? I have experimented on a few of my KO Black Convoys but never got it right. Any input is greatly appreciated!

    thx for he kind words again.

    The red window/translucent parts were painted with clear red over.

    The shoulder insignia are water slide decal. I drill a hole through them like the original figure itself.

    Hope the info are useful.

    Where did you get that clear red?

    Do they have other colours?

    I'm thinking of doind a ThunderClash from this mold, but I still need to figure how to turn the windows pink...
