    Sinister Magnus is FINISHED

    He's painted out of a ROTF Voyager class Optimus Prime.

    I used these paints:

    Tamiya Flat White
    Tamiya Clear Red
    Tamiya Chrome Silver
    Humbrol Chrome Silver
    Humbrol Flat yellow, brown, US tan, coal black
    Humbrol Metallic Copper
    Humbrol Varnish

    I also shaved a lot of the inside of the engine-part, to prevent rubbing.

    The back-wheel-wells are nolonger transforming (glued 'em stuck), because it's too much trouble to shave them, and not shaving 'em down would rub the paint off.

    I decided NOT to clearcoat his robotparts, only his vehiclemode, because it turned a little yellow-ish on the white. That's a small shame for the truck.

    Backstory:
    Jetfire was -one- of the old-skool Terran Transformers, but he's not the only relic.

    Sinister Magnus, a follower of the Fallen, also remained on Earth, to protect the Sun Harvester. He awoke, although to late. Still, he took a Terran form and has plans to continue the work The Fallen started.

    Thanks!

    Although I have to admit, I'm greatly inspired by the Ultra Magnus by CalCustoms. When I saw that for the first time, I thought to myself "I want that. I'm gonna make that."

    Of course, I didn't want to make a copy, although I really loved the design, so I'm giving it a twist. When it's finished and you guys see the alt-mode, I hope I'm going to blow you away.

    I kinda like the colour scheme layout. White, reddish and black. A nice combi. How does it look in vehicle mode? Will the colour variations be seen as well? Either way, very nice concept! :)

    Im inspired by the imagination that went into this. The work looks great too, but that's one kick @$$ bio. Great work.

    Keep it up man, I'm becoming a fan after that Rodimus you did. :thumb

    Wow, so many good replies!! Thanks, guys, this is really motivating.


    @Sabsabby6000: Vehicle mode not touched yet, I just re-assembled him for the picture, but I have some neat ideas, of which I hope I can execute him. I'm not super confident of my painting skills (I saw your interview, so thank you very much >_<), but I hope my drawingskills shan't falter.

    @Ultraquad7, Solrac667: Thanks, you guys reply in almost every topic, that's cool.

    @AutobotxXX: Thank you very much for your opinion on the figure, his bio AND my Rodimus

    @mampy (Don't know how to be creative with this lulz): Thanks for the compliment. Yea, I was worried about how the white would turn out, it's still harder to paint than, say, metallic something.

    Jee, all that, and I didn't even say Good morning yet.

    Working on the head design. Those eyes are a pain to do, must've redone 'em like 5 times, until I came up with using a needle with some paint on it.

    You can take it apart by removing a screw (or two) at the back of his head. No electronics to worry about and it's very easy to put back together. :)

    Oh yeah, I did that. Painted the helmet and faceplate seperately. It would be easier if the eyes were on the faceplate-piece, though.

    Gotta rework the metal around his eyes too, he looks cross-eyed right now...That's not the look I was going for.

    Sorry for double-posting (again), but big-ish update. I can't believe how fast this project is coming along.

    It's FAR from done, though, just a preview.
