    Done.:thumb: I love your work and have DL'd many of your models, I guess I should be ashamed for not having commented. Now you know, I've been lurking there for awhile. I'd like to thank all of you guys for the models.

    Projects like this really amaze me. I wouldn't know where to start with something like this. Very cool.

    Trying finger joints...

    I finally (test) built Bumblebee right hand this weekend. I printed these parts black and white and colored them with markers.

    First, let's see how the joint is made

    DSC08008.jpg
    Two thin rings (black ones) at each end of yellow part and one wider (silver) on gray part.

    When these rings are firmly attached to their parts, I pass a cylinder through them.

    DSC08010.jpg
    The cylinder is glued to the black rings. The silver ring is kept free so the cylinder is able to roll inside it.

    Here are some pics of the completed hand

    Thank you guys!

    I'm designing shoulders and elbows joints now.

    Next, I'll make the legs and head.

    Hope I can handle all these....:cry:

    Man this looks to be a nice model. I am a big fan of detailed models (Yamaha) and this looks to be a lot of fun! Thanks for the build and I can't wait to try this one myself.
