    Hello everyone! Sorry for the amateur pics. Just finished my second/third customs and pretty pleased the way they came out. Please leave any sort of feedback as it is much appreciated.

    Good job!!! Where'd you get your mirrors from and how did you attached them? Everything looks great and your attention to detail.

    One of your first customs, you say? I think you did a pretty good job with them. :thumb 

    I am most impressed with your eye for detail. Great work adding those side mirrors to Prime. Also, kudos for painting in the silver lining on the truck doors, all those little gold accents, and the eyes especially. You even filled in the missing parts of the red flames on those blue panels on his back - something that I missed on my Prime.

    I think you need to improve on the smoothness of your paint apps, though. The blue paint on Prime's lower torso, along with paint apps all over Jetfire, look uneven and as if they were touched or something while not completely dry.

    It would also help if you could add a wash to Prime's silver robot parts. This would help a lot in bringing out all the detail in the mold. The problem with robot parts is always how to highlight all the lines and detailing with your paint apps. I think that you did a much better job with Jetfire in this regard. I like how adjacent areas/panels were painted in different colors and you resisted the temptation to just paint everything in the same amount/shade of silver. :) 

    Again, great job on these two. You will only get better from here. I hope to see more of your work. :thumb

    Thanks for the feedback everyone! I got the rear view mirrors of a Kentworth 1/32 scale model kit, and attached them with some small dabs of industrial adhesive.

    Thanks for the comment! I just swapped the hand from the 2007 leader prime with the rotf prime. Easy process and credit goes to F_R. Also, the gun fits pretty well just by sliding the gun handle into the palm and closing the fingers for a tight grip.

    thanks dude, sorry last question. how did you connect the hands? the 07 primes hands look different from the way the ROTF primes hands are built into the figure... i cut opened up the ROTF forearms and saw how its connected.. but when i look at the 07's it looks like a panel..
