    After weeks on putting this guy off and minimal time working on him Nemesis Prime is finally done. Debating whether or not I should put him up for sale on ebay...we'll see from the response he gets.
    Application:
    . TFTM Leader-class Optimus Prime
    . !00% enamel paint flat black was used on the body, silver-chrome on wheels,fenders, exhaust pipes, front grill etc...
    . Arms,legs drybrushed with gun-metal then light coat of silver
    . Decepticon logo on hood (thanks F_R) cut out from frisket film
    . Exhaust pipes extended by using the casings of two papermate pens
    . Gun came from a GIJOE Sigma 6 figure
    . Also added handle bars on the truck
    . Trailer done in 100% flat black
    . Stencil in Decepticon logo
    . Lightning done by hand (had the shakes:) )
    Enjoy

    Heeey, I have one of those trailers!

    Did you consider taking the wheels from the truck and slapping them on Nemmy, for the sake of chrome rims?

    Nicely done! Black Prime repaints don't generally catch my attention, but you've done great work here. I like the hood insignia and how you have it showing in 'bot mode with the knee panels unfolded. The flat black and bars on the back of the cab were also nice touches. Would you mind listing the brand of chrome/silver used on his truck parts, and is it a spray or brush on?

    Great job!

    pretty nifty man. The only thing I don't like is the drybrushed silver on the windows. considering those are transparent pieces, they wouldn't have silver showing during wear like that.

    Thanks... the initial idea was to put teal on the legs and shoulder area but it wasn't working for me and I wanted the nemesis colors, so I decided to put at least teal on the forehead.

    I have a tutorial for the smokestacks on my site.
    Also, glad the eps file went to good use. I will post those files (faction symbols) for download on my site as well...
