    That's right Skip. Although, it changes its size during the movie.

    I'll be looking forward your PDO file.

    My half-finished build of the head was the most ugly one I ever did. For some weird reason I couldn't get the neck to fit properly. :cry: I will try it over some day...

    Very nice job on the torso, Claudio. I am still behind on the build, however. The legs are just now getting started on as I have been somewhat sidetracked on other "Hako" projects etc. Thanks again for the great model. I hope mine looks as good as yours. I'll post pics when I get a chance.

    Great Model Claudio, your Bumbleebee is fantastic! I really want to build this, but I looked at how many pages I'd have to use :p

    Oh no...there goes the sibling...with my cardstock? Wait! He's printing your Bumbleebee! Either stop him or....help him ;)

    Good luck man!

    I would've cheerfully paid for this model. And yet.... you offer it up to the world for FREE!

    Good work as usual.

    Tell me, are you getting to the point where you can execute the 3D designs you want fairly quickly?

    I've been working on designing a model of my own and have just..... been.... struggling with the bottleneck of having to teach myself how to use sketchup and blender so I can get the designs layed out in 3D.

    I guess my question is.. Where does the majority of your design time go now? Is it spent in design?.... or in the test builds? or textureing?

    For me it's on the post-unfold processing, also on finding references prior to designing. These two make up a good model and takes the bulk of time... -- Oops sorry for taking this off on a tangent Claudio...

    Thanks outersketcher!

    Regarding your questions:
    Designing : 50%
    Texturing : 20%
    Final build : 30%

    I usually don't make test builds. Bumblebee hand was an exception and was test built to see if articulated joints work.

    Welcome sir!!! You deserve these credits!!! :-D

    Now I wonder how many heads can we turn when this one and sir Skip's Camaro debuts in our nationals (along with ValkyrieWars' Starsrceam and the PModel F-22)... :twisted:
