    Okay, a few days ago I received the KOLD Unshattered Glass Konvoy from frankeblaha. I got a pretty good deal on it, and for a Knockoff, the quality is pretty darned high. The plastic is sturdy, the screws don't strip like crazy, and the paint-apps are pretty good. Sure, there's a little slop here and there, including a silver blob on one tire, and there are little casting eccentricities and some loose joints that remind you its a Knockoff. But overall, its a pretty good toy.

    Anyway, thanks to RID, I've come to regard black Optimus repaints as Scourge/Skurge, and if I ever do acquire one of the SDCC Nemesis Prime's from a few years back, he'll be called Skurge. As such, I decided to do a little repainting of the KOLD Konvoy and turn him into a classics Nemesis Prime. Some of what I've done hearkens to the Botcon SG Prime, and some of it is a departure.

    Here's what he looked like before I took the brushes to him:

    And this is what he looks like now:

    I'm probably going to add a few silver scratches and chips on the dark blue and purple areas a bit later on, but he's mostly done. While this piece didn't require a lot of work, I like the way it turned out.

    Comments are welcome :)

    Thanks SQ! I went back after posting these images and added a few more finishing touches, like the "chipped" silver areas, and a bit more mud-splatter. I'll take more pics tomorrow when I have the sun available :)

    The first pics are what he looked like before I did any alterations. I removed the Decepticons symbols as part of my repainting process.

    Also, that's not a shattered-glass Autobot symbol, as those are purple. This one is actually black.
