Re: pics of my other (lol) project Optimus Prime


Hi guys
right slots were added in different areas of the base,then the mirror styrene has been cut in different shapes to represent the panels of cybertron, once cut,they were put to the side while i sorted out the underside, the string of leds were tacked on near the slots,so the lights will poke through, once happy, i added a bottom to the base,covered in tin foil to reflect the light upwards, then i superglued each panel on, and as you can see once the protect film is removed from the panels and the light shines through,and finally i have started to add chrome trim to each panel, its starting to take shape now!!
all the best

Re: pics of my other (lol) project Optimus Prime


Right guys, prime is finished, once base was complete, it was a small matter of the odds and sods i needed to do to finish prime, pelvis was first, i felt it was a bit flat, so i added more chrome trim to add depth to it, the eagle eyed amoung you will notice this, and its hard to believe that theres over 6 metres of trim added to the pelvis, also added a bit more detail to the legs to bring them up to the same standard as his arms and cab, dirt was added to the wheel arches and tyres, and the vents on primes legs all had dust added, fine line chrome trim was used to make the small vents, all in all im very happy.
I also want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the support and comments, and wish you all a happy xmas, i know its early, but its nearly here, lol, anyway, video 4 is in the works, so watch this space!!!!!
all the best
