    [W.I.P.] DOTM Ultra Class : Optimus Prime [update 12/09]

    After Jetwing Prime, I still want to do something bigger, and I originally got the idea from Xaviercal and F_R for the ultimate prime concept.

    I want this built to be big, playable, Strong, and the most important part is transformable!

    I have to partly thank to the engineering on this built from Xaviercal, that helps my thought flow better.

    Ok now he's formed up, I'm adding the articulations to those hands!

    Will soon update this up, stay tuned!

    *********Update 1-9-11********
    Painting

    One of the most painful process for this guy, the Flame!

    Now I'm illustrating on how to use the flame stencils (Created by me)

    - Prepare your surface, make sure it's clean and cured already before applying stencils

    [​IMG]

    Mask all the unwanted parts (Mask them all, or you would have a chance to waste your time after finding out that some of your spray paint went on the undesired spots.

    [​IMG]

    Don't mess with the part that need multiple step like this one! Just Be careful of it
    [​IMG]


    While waiting for the paint to dry, do something else! I went on the basecoat for mech part
    [​IMG]


    Then, get back to the flame stuff, and pull off those stencils, then I recommend to clean the surface of it again using warm water, then start pinstriping
    Like this

    Will update more, stay tuned!






    ****Update 4/09****

    Almost done with the paint app on LDR Optimus, only the armor and the Jetpack left!

    This is when the clear coat cured already

    ****Updated 6/09****

    Polished and ready for assembly, armor parts in the painting progress!

    ****Updated 12/09***

    After doing all the coat, it's time to put him back together, now I'm working on the jetpack, the armor is already done

    This is not Chrome but the reflection is just there

    Very nice start..... but I hope you are going to lengthen the arms because right now they look WAY out proportion to the legs.

    The arms look fine, hands are trailing just above the knee, what bothers me on the otherwise excellant job are the front fenders if they were lower down closer by the ankle I think it would look better, having them that high up is distracting. Imho.

    Yep, I think the arms looks pretty fine since it reaches the knees already (Though I extended them 0.7 cm for articulation)
