    here we go. My finished Custom Optimus prime.


    I bought him on thursday..and from then I spent about 3~4 days just for robot mode...

    Still haven't done the vehicle mode, gotta work on that.

    but yeah. I like how he turned out. pretty good I think..

    will upload Custom Fallen sometime this week.

    Nice job! Man, I need to get around to painting mine. He looks so much better with some simple paint apps

    great job Walt! Though it is unfortunate that you didn't paint the area around his eyes.

    What color blue did you use to match with the rest of him? He looks really good--I've been meaning to touch up my own at some point.

    Overall good paintwork. Nice color contrast:thumb , can be better if you touch up the flames around the bust area.

    I used Testors Turtoquise Blue? Something like that.

    Thanks for everyone's comments.

    Hey I gotta ask, I can see very minute brush strokes on the blue aps you made, I just gotta ask, how do you them without brush strokes or very little or almost invicible to the naked eye?

    I just bought my new paint (red and blue) and theirs just too many brush strokes, If I try to increase the volume of the paint It gets too "sticky" or too thick, how do you do it? need a lil help sir

    thanks

    I exactly know what your problem is.

    Yeah. This could sound too simple. but when I used testors paint, it simply reduces many brush strokes than any other paints.

    ummm, im in the philippines so I really havent seen here 'Testors Paint', besides the fact that alot of people here in radicons use that brand of paint, I dont think it's available here. I use 'mr. color' that's it. do u know any other way sir? thanks


    Nice Prime btw, sort of like a twin of mine but yours have way more detail and you got testors paint :)  maybe you could drop by on my thread and see mine and criticize it, though I apologize for poor pictures

    Nice paint job dude :) 

    You should thin the paint with water(if using acrylic) or thinner (for enamel/lacquer) and paint in multiple thin coats for a smoother finish.
