You guys are doing awesome work out there, and it has inspired me to throw my hat in the ring once again. Alright, I posted this before when it was much less finished a few months ago. I had to take a break and get a job painting motorcycles, then I had to take a break from that to work some more on this. I felt that he no longer qualified as a "Minor" repaint, as there is scarcely any of his original paint left. Takes me back to the Nightwatch repaint I did for TFTM Prime. Anyway, I did so much rebuilding, I thought that "Heavy" was more appropriate since this has been quite labor intensive. (Still, if I am mistaken about the tagging, I apologize, and wouldn't mind if this thread moved somewhere more appropriate) Here's the rundown: -Replaced and dremeled room for a new brilliant blue head LED -Replaced hands with TFTM hands for articulation -Added some details that were noticeably absent from the mold, including the shoulder tank whoozits and crotch dealy -Shaved down parts allowing for more clearance in robot mode or during transformation. -Tightened all of the springs for a more instantaneous action on the swords -(I will be adding chains soon to the sleeper rack for the finished truck mode) -Airbrushed new flames on the entire bodywork for truck and robot mode and hand-painted blue pinstripes -Detailed and weathered all of the hidden parts which appear in robot mode for a clean look in truck mode -Extensive handpainted body work for all of the robot mode bits. I seriously had about 6 different brushes and 7 or 8 different shades of metallic paint -And of course CHROME Most of my time spent on this project has been in prep-time, like 80%. I certainly have a new appreciation for the craftsmanship that went into the design of the new Optimus. He remains to be Clear Coated, some minor touch up on the oopsies, and I have to get him a decent gun. There are a few more finishing touches until I feel he is truly done, and I'll post more photos once that happens. For now, please enjoy, and your comments and critiques are welcome.
