    Doh ... I think your right. I will do my best to make some progress this week. I can keep posting pics if folks are still interested in seeing them. Once again, thanks for the great model. It is very fun to work on!

    Looks I will be up in Osh Kosh, WI for the weekend. Building on hold for a time. This should be expensive! 570 miles in $4 gas. Ouch!! Have a good weekend all. Anybody in the neighborhood up for a beer friday night, let me know!

    Hi Claudio!

    I thought I'd come out of the dark and comment your excellent work! I think the job you've done on Bumblebee is SIMPLY AMAZING. Having a detailed Transformer made out of paper is like a dream come true for me. =P

    I will start to build him once you've released all the parts. I have one question though. What kind of cardstock should I be printing the parts on? How thick should it be?

    Thanks! Do you think 110gsm paper would be okay?

    Also, I noticed that on your parts pages you have dotted white lines to indicate where to fold the parts, but your actual build doesn't have them at all. Are you using a lineless version of the parts? If so, are you planning to make them available?

    I don't think so... You'll need to reinforce parts, so they can be rigid enough to hold the robot weight and mobility.

    No, I'm using the same version. I just colored these lines with a marker pen.

    Sorry for all the questions, but I just found out my paper is actually 150gsm and not 110. Do you think this would do the job or is 180 the bare minimum? I don't have any experience with building larger models like Bumblebee so I am quite clueless.

    Thanks again for all the help. (=

    No problems, buddy. I think 150 will do. Try building a joint and also a large piece to check if it's ok.

    This is a very nice model, but other than the obvious instructions you have included, (and this may be somewhere that I haven't noticed, wouldn't be the first time) what weight or thickness/weight paper did you use for MOST of the project. I also wanted to say that your release schedule is perfect, by the time i am done with one part, another comes up.

    I just printed the head, that's where I'll start in making this one. I think this is the most complicated model I've ever made! Though the leds in teh head are very nice, I'm not going to do that. The printed 'eyes' look good aswell.

    Anyway, very nice model, and I think I'm going to have a tough time assembling this guy. :twisted:

    I am almost done with the head, but in some areas the instructions were kinda hard to follow, but still very nice.
