I've been getting into miniature painting recently and as practice decided to paint up the Diecast Optimus Prime that came with MP Inferno. I'm fairly pleased how he came out. But he was an absolute pain to paint. The paint chips off at the slightest scratch, sometimes coming off the corners without even being touched (hopefully some thick coats of varnish will help) and required many many coats of paint as they would just soak in to the figure. I did go a little too dark with the shading, and the windscreen is a little rough mainly due to not having a flat brush small enough to get in there, having to use a pointed one instead. One day I might go back and add some edge highlights. I used a mixture of different acryclic paints: Citadel, Vallejo, Humbrol and Tamiya. I'm in the middle of doing diecast Ultra Magnus. Might do the diecast Reflector, but I like that one as it is. This guy is tiny, and is best viewed from a distance: And against my better judgement, some close up shots: There is no detail on the original figure where the hand holds the rifle - it's just a big blob. I decided just to follow that instead trying to add in my own fist.
