    I like the way you do the instructions rob! Actually coming to think about it, I wonder is there a way to get "clean" instruction diagrams in Meta by somehow rendering the folds?

    33cm tall eh?...that is 12.99 inches (God bless the american standard) lol


    So that would make it like 1/60 scale...was that your intention? I was going to ask because I can't see building a 1/100 scale model they are about 7-8 inches tall...18-21cm...almost too small, at least for my fat fingers! :mrgreen:

    Have you considered making a bust of this one...adding detail to just the head...have you seen those models? They are really neat looking.
