    Introducing the first of my 2 unique henkeis. Henkei Nemesis Prime. In case you're thinking, he isn't actually black. He's been done in many shades of gloss grey till the present state. ANd please forgive the lack of truck mode. I ran out of grey gloss paint and didnt dare transform him in case he chips and I am not able to correct it.

    Very nice.

    I always thought the Energon Bruticus head would make a cool looking Nemesis Prime Head. I have an extra one if you want to try. Let me know, I'll send it to you.

    this looks absolutely great! are you airbrushing some of the details? i have no idea how you're able to paint those windshield wipers so well and not get paint on the windshield or vice versa. your patience must be incredible. the grey really works. this might sell better than your Optimus Prime.

    He looks great, though I have to say I don't like that you painted the windows opaque red instead of clear red.

    Hmmm..I really doubt so. I cant even find one locally now. Either that or it's being priced exorbitantly. Unless it's a request though.

    The details are all painstakingly hand painted. Those windshield wipers took me awhile to do as I had to do it very very slowly with a tiny tiny brush. Thanks for noticing. You really do have a sharp eye for details.

    Oh yeah. I was thinking about that in the end decided against it. No particular reason though. I guess it may have looked better with clear windows.

    Thanks there. Glad you like it.

    the wipers are indeed a pain to paint, but not as hard as the trim on the side windows. :lol  did you paint those too? I did to my regular prime way back when, I wanted all the windows to match in alt mode.

    The gloss grey looks better then straight black. Will you be able to transform him when you get more paint?

    Urghh...Those were a nightmare as well. I painted them all. I had to balance the use of tape and knife to get it clean.

    You're absolutely right. Straight black is a harsh colour to use on a glossy vehicle unless absolutely necessary. To be honest I doubt I want to transform him as I am really tied up with other customs. Namely ROTF. Hehehe.

    Did it start life as a Opti Prime or a Nemi Prime?
