    That looks amazingly good, I especially loved the way you painted the interiors of the arms as those are extremely tricky to make movie accurate (if at all). I've also been customizing my Ultimate Optimus Prime using some cues from your repaint and it's a bit tricky to try to paint it as screen accurate as possible simply because it's not nearly as detailed and they took some liberties with the mold. Hasbro seemed to have tried to approximate certain parts as best it can such as with the very small wheel well detail in the ankle area among other things but it's one of those molds where paint wise one just has to make due and approximate what paint goes where.

    I've been trying to find the perfect blue for Ultimate Prime with Testors but I kind of just settled on a darker "arctic blue" for him all around. I don't want to mess with the red/blue flames since I can't possibly do that sort of detail justice so I might have to find a way to mask the areas I want to paint around it (maybe with some sort of glue).

    It's not a bad figure at all by any means, it's just a different sort of challenge to try to make him more movie accurate paint wise.

    Wow that's awesome stuff there. My buddy Leobreaker1977 got me this prime for my birthday and I've been doing some minor paint apps here and there but this piece of artwork has inspired me to step my game up. Could I see a pic of the inside of the forearms?
