    I have seen a few other TFs PRIME style (DOTM) Dino customs and they have been great! So it inspired me to do my own.

    I used the TFs PRIME Smokescreen as my base. I chopped the spoiler and sanded down the back end to smooth out the look. I used a real Auto paint for the red and it has metal flake in it. Tinted the windows and even chromed out the rims. The drums behind the wheels have been painted a gun metal and the calipers have also been painted red to match.

    I used an aluminum silver for the headlights and the venting on the car, as well as the exhaust pipes and mirrors. The back lights were painted in a orange and yellow chrome paint and the center caps on the rims were also done in yellow chrome to match the Ferrari yellow on Dino's center caps ;) 

    Robot pics to come as soon as im done with his arm blades. Oh and he has a new custom head ;)  The custom is complete but I will not be showing the robot mode until Im done with the blades. He will be going up on Ebay once finished.

    I hope you like it so far :)

    I think this only counts as "Minor/Repaint." Then again, I've been wrong before.

    I may be wrong but I would think that if you repaint as well as chop parts or add parts (custom head) its considered a heavy scratch right? If not, my bad, ill change it.

    Creative.

    I think that even if it did fail in overall variety, Prime did succeed in averting the Endless Sports Parade that normally happens.

    From the description, there's enough going on with the changes to constitute being "Heavy/Scratch".

    It looks really nice. Robot mode photos!

    Thanks for all the comments guys. Ill have robot pics up in a few days (I hope) the hardest part of this mod for me is the arm blades. I want to get them just right but not completely copy them from the movie. I want uniqueness.

    This is a deluxe transformers Prime Smokescreen. Can't you tell? And yeah I would do a reshell but I was going with the PRIME cartoon look to keep it in that realm but pull just enough from the movie.

    Looks amazing! If Dino was ever in Prime, I could surely picture him looking like this. Get those arm blades done so we can see the robot mode
