    That's just wrong, selling other peoples work. Did you find out who it was?

    I don't think that's going to be a problem, this model seems to have gained quite a lot of interest.:mrgreen:

    Yes! Col. Kurtz pointed me to a guy selling my 1966 Batmobile. I've contacted eBay and asked the seller to remove this item from eBay listings.

    No responses, though

    Well, I hope you get some satisfaction. That type of slug deserves what he gets. I've never been a big proponent for copyrighting material, but it's guys like this that infuriate me. No talent hacks that ride on the back of someone else's work.

    The paper model community is awesome for looking out for it's own. Someone 'accidentially' tried to sell a pdf of one of my models on ebay and the community had harassed the crap out of him before I had a chance to 'chat' with him to resolve the 'misunderstanding'...

    And I'm glad to see the Bumblebee will be a nice simple model...heh

    That's great to hear. Wish the same could be said for other modeling communities. I have noticed there seems to be a much more team spirited, helpful, friendly approach to each other in the paper modeling community. The International spirit of cooperation is very self evident on this forum.:mrgreen:

    Couldn't have put it better myself!
    I'm relatively new to the forum WRT being an active participant, used to be in the shadows, but the way everyone just boost each other up and gives a helping hand got me out of my shell and here I am! Sharing my designs and WIP's even though I'm usually too self conscious.

    Cláudio, I find myself checking this thread for updates first before reading any of the others! I get more and more excited about this model each time I see your new pictures, truly spectacular so far! Show us more! :mrgreen: :thumb:

    Will this bumblebee incorporate other media as well, or just paper?

    Well, a belated welcome aboard and thanks for sharing your work. I hope to be able to do this soon. I'm following a couple of different tuts and hope to be able actually do something....at some point. This is one place where I feel like a total noob.

    Thanks CJTK. I have been a member for a short while, but of course have been lurking longer. This is a great form for leads on models I am in search of to build. The more detailed the better! Of course, I do also enjoy building Hakos as they are a nice break from the "big" ones! I have followed many of Claudio's works and I have to say, he' sone of the best out there! Thanks again Claudio, this looks to be amazing in the end.

    I'm thinking about using also:

    springs : in the arms
    wires : to enhance and the help lighting eyes and chest
    overhead projector sheet : for windows

    Thank you for your comments!

    CJTK, I do have the bridge, but I haven't had a chance to put it together yet. It is very cool indeed. Should be a lot of fun. I've been working on a lot of the Telman and Butch Price Hakos lately as I have sooo many of them. If anyone is looking for any of them, PM me and I will mail if that is acceptable.

    Its the first time I'll be posting in this section, but like all good people here...

    WWWWOOOOOOOOOOOWWWW bounce7

    I'm embarrased to admit that I first saw the live action adaptation of Transformers 2 weeks ago, when the film was played on our school trip bus on our way to a field trip, and I was more interested on the actual military hardware that participated in the film (especially the AC-130H)... but after seein it, I was blown away, hands down... :-D

    I just thought if there's somebody "sick" enough to make a model out of the autobots or the decepticons... he will be an instant hit...

    I didn't thought that there's someone here already!!! :-D

    I'll build Bumblebee for sure, and for a good reason, my female classmate who is a fan of the film would really love to have one!!!

    Keep it up sir!!! You may never know how many Transformer fans are smiling at you now... :-D

    Just a silly question (a bit too farfetched though)... can this one transform? :-D

    Hans,

    First of all, thank you for your comments.

    Unfortunately, it won't transform... However, Skip and I are planning to design the 2008 Camaro also.

    Cláudio Dias,

    After this project would you consider designing Barricade? :D
