    Movie-Verse Optimus Prime

    Normally I'm a Star Trek or Star Wars modeler, but I decided to do something little out of that arena. I'm making a gundam-like kit of Optimus Prime. It's the DMK-01 Dual Model Optimus Prime kit from Takara Tomy. It is VERY movie accurate, one of the best kits I have ever laid eyes on. The detail on this thing is mind blowing. Anyway, since it's still science fiction, I thought a few of you guys might like to see it. Here are some progress pics below.

    Base Skeleton Painted with metallic paints.




    Red Truck part with battle damage and flame decal.





    And the skeleton with first weathering pass. (Note blue truck parts on leg)

    It's about 10-11 inches tall when fully constructed.

    Yeah, but most of the other shots contain items that give a more accurate scale.

    Really nice looking model so far. I especially like the weathering and battle damage.
