    Claudo,
    This is perfect, the 3D representation shows the folds well.

    Nice looking builds as usual Claudio. It seems I am way behind you now! I've been busy working on a new website for my father-in-law, he's an amateur photographer. Feel free to check out his photos at Under construction. Well, I better get working on these legs this week!

    I've been looking for my next sci-fi build, and when I've done with skips new Camero build, while I'm build a few more shuttle payloads, I've decided to build Claudio's bumblebee next.

    I've been watching all three bumblebee design's (2 cars and robot) and all look good. The car and robot will look good together.

    I guess I joined this thread a little too late...:wave:
    Sorry for the dumb questions but does anyone know where I can get this model? I heard it was in A4 format, and I was wondering if there's an easy way to get it into the US size of 8.5 by 11. Finally, any word on whether or not the torso is complete?

    Thanks :mrgreen:

    Don't hurry CK!

    I still have a long way through the torso.

    BTW, I've checked you father-in-law website. Awesome photos!

    Don't know any easy way to get it into US size, sorry.

    I'm building the torso now, and I hope I get it finished within this contest deadline - June 30th.

    US Letter vrs A4

    I had the same issue trying to print Bumblebee's head on US Letter paper. I wanted it to stay 1/12 scale so I did a select in Acrobat and printed as much as would fit on the Letter page. I then took another selection and printed the bottom of the page. For most pages I only have to print two pages to get everything I needed. In the case of the Bumblebee head I had to print three pages to get all of the parts the correct size.

    It isn't really that bad, in some cases you want to build up the part thickness, so having an extra part here or there isn't really a problem.

    Thanks Claudio. I haven't gotten much work done as of late. Work has been taking up a lot of time. I am glad you liked the photos. He has really got an eye for pictures!

    You can also scale the page to fit a US page. When you print, there is a dropdown list of different scalings. Select "Fit to page" and it will resize to 91%. This will save you paper, but the parts will be smaller.

    ... and you must ensure that 91% will be applied to all PDF files

    or else the parts won't fit, or won't be proportional to the other sections...
