    As I recently did Unicron, thought I'd paint my Primus as well.
    After prep work, I gave him numerous thin coats of black primer.
    Then metallic chrome, with silver and black and silver mixed so the planet mode has slightly different shades.

    I spent days adding small detail as I wanted to bring as much detail out as possible.

    Transformation checked, and finished with gloss varnish.

    Thanks mate.

    All my work is a combination of airbrushing and hand painted.
    A lot of this figure was hand painted, which I do enjoy. And thanks :) 

    Mate, it felt like an eternity :D 
    I spent days just hand painting tiny little detail. Good fun though!

    Stunning as always mate. Really like the extra detail you've given Primus, it gives the figure so much depth of scale. Deserves to do really well on eBay.

    Thank you.

    Thanks mate.
    Took a while, and as I've been looking at him everyday for a while it's gonna feel strange when he goes :) 
    Hopefully he'll get a bit of late interest and a few bids.


    Very kind. Thanks :) 


    Thank you :D
