    Here is another project i am working on, its a ROTF leader Prime.

    Im calling it my "masterpiece" as i want it to be the best custom i could possibly do at the moment, plus he's gonna have MP-like features such as articulated hands, metallic paint and other details you dont get with the regular version. (Maybe rubber tyres too...not sure yet though)

    Anyway here is a pic of him in pieces...not much to him when you look at him like this is there?

    That red is a great shade for him!! The blue could maybe stand to a few shades darker I think though. This will turn out nice regardless though!!God I need to finish mine.. Gr..Must get the remainder of my parts back from my chrome guy though!!

    Yeah i was thinking the blue could do with being a bit darker too, but its a bit late now cos everything has been cleared. Maybe in natural light it'll look better, as this pic was taken using a flash. Plus metallic is a strange paint to work with, it seems to have a mind of its own on what color its wants to be. It all depends on the light it seems.
    Thanks for the support!

    Thank you, mate :p 

    Thanks! I'll show ya more when i have it, right now this is it.

    Yay, better blue!

    Yippie i figured out i can paint straight onto clear so i re-did the blue!

    Some people had pointed out that it looked a little too bright (i didnt notice it at first), so since im trying to make this my "masterpiece" there wouldnt be much sense in keeping the wrong shade of blue on him now would it?

    So now meet new and improved...bits..of..Optimus Prime...-_- :p 

    p.s. Does anybody know where i can get some side mirrors for him from?
