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.

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