    Are you gonna keep the flame job? I had an original character named Rook who was essentially what you've got there, except I envisioned ghosted blue flames. I always thought Prime would look better if those flames were ghosted, but meh...

    No - No flames. It's a good idea but I am doing a decal that will run from the hood all the way down and across the sleeper.

    Nice! Now that I have ROTF Prime, I'm thinking of repainting my first movie Prime as Ultra Magnus.

    Those white paint apps look very clean. Can't wait to see your take on UM.

    Though I do think that the first movie prime mold, with its' big, boxy proportions, would make for a better movie-styled Magnus. We all know that the ROTF OP mold represents movie OP better, anyway. :)

    That pic was from the Transformers Convention held few months back in Malaysia. I was one of the organizers. The figure was on loan from one of my acquaintance for the event.

    Agreeable. TFM OP would be perfect for ultra magnus. This should turn out well though!!!
    Awesome convention TCracker. That looks like fun. I sorta now regret not going to botcon this year when I had the chance.

    Scribbles on pad.... ~Note to self: When doing airbrushing touch-ups with black paint on another figure. Make sure to remove ALL pieces of Ultra Magnus AWAY from said airbrushing touch-ups area.~

    Sheesh....

    Not much - Just slight overspray on the hood and front right fender. Nothing a wet sand and re-clear coat can't fix but annoying none the less.

    And thanks.

    Just wondering why you have sprayed the clear back lights white and not sanded down mold creases and not sanded off the ugly "CE" toy mark? :S

    Other than that, great idea,.. gots to love the ol Magnus fella :D

    Looks cool, but it doesn't really call out "Ultra Magnus" to me. He needs the trailer armor, IMO. Oh, I have a challenge for you, FR: A screen-accurate ROTF Jetfire. It'd be a major job. You'd have to strip away most of the Leader-class toy's parts... Hell, you'd probably be better off doing him entirely from scratch, Hasbro screwed up so badly.

    Ok.

    How about some snap-on tact?

    I didn't know we were in a competition but good luck with your piece.
