    I finally finished Optimus Prime. I began by spraying him with Krylon gloss black the a couple coats of Alclad II chrome. I then used Clear Red for his upper body and Clear Blue for the lower half. I used Model Masters Florescent Red/ Orange for his hi lights. I dry brushed parts of his arms and legs. Then I added the weathering and did some black washes over him. I made the Ax from Styrene. This is my first attempt at making anything like that. I used parts from Classics Deluxe Megatron and The Sword from a Knock off Alternators Wheeljack. I know it's not as cool as Mechafacture's but then I'm not that skilled. His gun was painted black and then hi lights added to it. C&C Welcome and wanted.

    That ax is pretty sweet looking. Making things out styrene open up a whole new area in customizing.

    The Ax looks great cheetor71:) 
    I think you did a stellar job on your paint job as well.

    Great effort there bro! Keep it up! You might wanna utilize the usage of masking tape for a cleaner repaint in the near future for all your customs. ;)

    I like the color of legs/feet the best.
    It looks great, as metallic as can be!:bowdown:

    Some of the places I want to tape off are small and my hands shake too much. I used to be a lot steadier. Working on BB now and I think he's turning out better.

    Try using a pair of tweezers to hold the tape pieces and then a soft rounded tool (I made a custom one so you'll have to create your own on that) to rub or almost like 'burnish' into place. Otherwise, it looks decent - Couple questions: Did you take this figure all apart before painting? Alot of times, it's easier to mask that way. Also, Do you use handbrushes to brush on the paint layers?
