    The game mesh is all prepared now. I still need to add the wheels, tyres, interior details and whatever else. There was a problem with the extraction where the wheels didn't extract with the rest for some reason. I'll be doing those from scratch soon.

    I could still use some help with police car interiors, but I'll be googling that later too. :)

    Here's a pic then of the mesh as it is now.

    The faces are double sided just for the purpose of the pic. ;)

    That'd be nice wouldn't it. Though Frenzy is probably the most challenging to do in paper. He's so delicate really, lots of thin pieces.

    If he were to be done I doubt it'd be even possible to do it in the same scale either, Frenzy's tiny in comparrison to the other Transformers isn't he.

    It'd be cool if someone did give him a go though, IN LIFE SIZE!!!!! Now there's a thought.....

    LOL! I don't doubt it could be done. Not by me though, my eyes are good but not up to micro modelling. ;)

    It has been done, only not in paper, but from the the CD player he turns into:

    He really does turn into the CD player and he works too! I saw him in person!

    That looks very good, though I can't see how he turns into the CD player?

    Barricade's looking meaner sir!!!

    Hmmm micro modeling? maybe we should try asking sir Nando to build Frenzy in the same scale as the ones you guys are doing... :twisted:

    Thank you, :D I'm in the middle of gathering reference for the interior, I'm also modelling the new wheel. I'm using the tyre from the 2009 Camaro which makes it easier but the wheel needs to be done over from scratch.

    Hey fellow Transformers fans!

    I've been fortunate enough to have gotten some good time to spend on this today. All wheels are now done, they're 3D not just flat textured insert. I've remodelled portions of the front end to add the little round lights(ya know, the one that pokes out to scan Sam?) as they weren't modelled into the original mesh.

    I've even did a bit of texturing too! The Police logo on the door is just prelim, it needs more adding to it.

    So far it's going really well! Here's a pic. :D

    A little bit more before I take a break to cook dinner. :) Now it looks like a cop car!! :twisted:

    Later I'll add the rest of the police decals onto it.

    I can almost hear Barricade's rough interrogation to Sam Witwicky...

    "ARE YOU USERNAME LADIESMAN217!!!???"

    "I don't know what your'e talking about!"

    "ARE YOU USERNAME LADIESMAN217!!!!!!!!!?"

    "uh yeah?"

    "WHERE IS THE EBAY ITEM 21153!!!??? WHERE ARE THE GLAAAASSEEEESS!!!???"

    :-D

    LOL! "All hail Megatron!"

    Thanks very much for the compliment. At least that's what I assumed that was? :D

    Got most of the body done now, there's still more to add to it but this is the main stuff that we'll recognise Barricade by. Off to do more then. :D

    LOL! Sorry dude! :D Just tryin' to make the most of my time before we move house. I've even chosen my next vehicle, but I'm keeping that to myself for now. ;)

    How is the Beater going? Nevermind, I'll email ya. ;)

    I'm still doing the body of Barricade, getting the last of the decals on and then onto smaller things like tail lights and what not.

    Glad ya like it though, this one seems to be going better or rather faster than the other two. Thanks buddy.

    Hmmm, you could reinact the part before this if the Saleen model has opening doors and a "mustache man" driver in him.
