    This is the current prime I am working on using alclad paint, and HOK automotive urethaynes. Bad boy looks like a real truck.... the paints and finish are AMAZING!

    BIG THANKS to formula93 for hooking me up with outstanding vinyl decals of the flames I created in photoshop from actual pictures of the Prime truck. They look spectacular!

    ** UPDATE: Truck mode pics.... he has single tires on the front, double tires on the rear. Chrome rims and super extended smokestacks....

    I believe he said he was using HoC auto paints. Shade I'm unaware of.

    It is a House of Kolors Kandy Cobalt Blue I believe (I will post the exact name when I get home).... it is sprayed over a coat of Alclad silver. Warning though, it is VERY toxic as it is a Urethane based paint. I will tell you though it dries like a ROCK and when the clear coat is applied it is virtually un-chipable (if that is a word! :p )

    I would deffs be interested, though I am hesitant to spend too much. I have been working on my Leader Prime off and on, and though I like the look of the pin stripes I have added to the flames (found a handy, .7 mm tipped white paint pen) I would love to give it a much more movie accurate look.

    The paint looks gorgeous! - but kinda wish the bot parts would've just been drybrushed to look more like metal, rather than chromed.

    The decals look amazing & the color is spot on!!!

    if you see this one up close, it looks like real metal..... however my next one I am going to do a "dry" look on the bot parts and the kandy paint on the truck sections
