    Hey guys.

    I got some stuff done lastnight and this morning. Mainly more work on the roof, hood and trunk. It's shaping up well I think. Though I won't get anymore done today, not until tonight anyway. The wife's got a fun day planned moving furniture around! :(

    See you guys later! :D

    Not all of the pics I have were upto being used for texturing so I've had to use the tools in PSP to try and replicate some of them.

    Thanks buddy. That yellow is still a bit too dark so will need toning down and dirtying up a bit.

    Thanks for the update email.

    Looks great Skip. Are you going to do a clean version, or just go with the beat up movie version?

    Thanks CK. :) That'll be a help.

    Joe, no to that one too I'm afraid. It'd mean creating two sets of texture for everything and I don't really want to do that. Besides, we don't see him as a clean new lookin' '77 Camaro.

    On top of that I'll be looking forward to sinking my teeth into the next Autobot.

    Thanks to you too Logicman. I appreciate it. :D

    Hey Skip,

    I do intend to build the 08 Camaro but the 70's one is the one I'm drooling over :p There's just something about the "Beater Bee's" style that modern cars can't even touch :D The only exception I think is the new Mustangs :D So how's that Barricade to go with the Beater?

    Hey Getter.

    Thanks amigo! I always appreciate the kind comments I get here. The Beater Bee is becoming me favourite incarnation of BumbleBee. There's something there. :)

    Great news on Barricade! I may have had a break on other meshes!!!! It's early days so I'll wait and see but I may have more to get through soon. When I say meshes I mean game extracted meshes from the Transformer game. :D Fingers crossed eh?! :)

    Either of those two pics will be perfect! Thanks CK. :)

    I might just buy one actually just for the sake of having one. They are cool. ;)

    Thanks again for the compliments guys! :D I'll be back on it today, again. I'm just having fun with these so it's hard to think about anything else lately.

    Thanks very much Lex! :D Most of the weathering you see is from the actual car photos and screen caps. Though I've used the tools in PSP to create some of my own and to tone down the screen cap ones too.

    I see now why so many people use Meta! I've said it bfore but I can't see me ever going back to my old software to design models.

    I've still not heard back regarding the other meshes I should get soon. Though I am confident that I'll hear something soon. Should I get them before I finish this design, I'll be putting Ratchet on hold and do Barricade instead! B'Bee has to have an enemy right? :D
