    I'd like to change this thread title to "[Free Model #3] Transformers Bumblebee".

    Could any moderator do that for me, please?

    I'm in awe. I may have to tell my boyfriend to not talk to me while I'm working on this. So amazing!

    What size LEDs did you use (3mm, 5mm)? The head looks AMAZING!! I may have to let my other projects go on the back-burner so I can work on this piece. Simply amazing!!

    OH MY GOD! Claudio I have no more words for you my friend. :)

    Would it have a negative effect on our friendship if I were to say," I love you" ? LOL Seriously, great work and I love the eyes. Well done. :)

    Thank you for your nice compliments!

    Claudio,

    Would you make some instructions of how to connect the LEDs so that they can be used with your model.

    I was thinking for people who have never done that sort of thing (me included)

    Excellent work!!!

    Hey Claudio.

    Yeah I'll be building this. Though I have loads on at the mo so I'll probably wait 'til it's all done. ;) Speaking about building your models, I finished the pink airship the other day. Though I admit to cutting a few corners on the fins and rotors. :) It now hangs from my girls ceiling. Thank you. ;)

    I had a look at the parts sheet and instructions for the B'Bee head. It's amazing how you always achieve great results without over complicating the model. I noticed this with your Tumbler and '66 Batmobile.

    Done... and umm....

    [​IMG]

    If those eyes are 5mm, that thing is going to be a pretty decent size when it's done... I've said this before, but you've truly outdone yourself on this one Claudio, you are a real asset to the card modeling community indeed.

    I thought the same thing. 5mm eyes? It does add up to a great size model. I don't think I personally could build this WITHOUT lighting them up. Just need to know how. ;) hint hint. LOL

    I agree too Jaffro, there are many talented designers out there who deserve credit, Claudio is without a doubt one of them. :)

    Here in Brazil, any electronic components store has all you need: Battery, battery holder, switch and leds.
