    Hey all its been a while! I recently got some time off from my other projects so I picked up a RotF Prime to repaint, in his classic colors of course.:wink: 

    This was my 4th repaint so far and it took me about 3 weeks, the longest time I've worked on a TF. The piece was mostly airbrushed with paintbrushes for detailing/weathering. The figure has 4 shades of silver, 2 red, 2 blue, gold, copper, and a few shades of umber and black for weathering (slightly, just enough to make the pieces stand out). The paint was sealed with modelmaster clear lacquer + future wax.


    The gun was made from various TF parts (movie/MP Optimus, reissue Jazz, and some weird lighter I found in my dad's tool box)

    Thanks :)

    This is really slick, man. I also like some of the photos next to the house. Angled just right, it could look as if Prime is 1:1! :)

    It looks just as awesome as the paintjob you did on the TFTM LC Prime.

    The gun barrel you used looks too long for how narrow it is, but that's just nitpicking.

    AMAZING JOB! :thumb

    Simply awesome, nice use of the flaps from the under side of MP Primes arms and better use of the lighter shaft for the gun barrel. But your paint looks incredible, like a factory painted car. Nice job!
