    any chance you can make the PDO's completed unfold and recolored so that people do not have to do them, themselves as a lot of people do not know how to use pepakura.

    Progress it looking excellent, keep up the great work

    Did you look at the pics I posted of the Red Lion build? I got several shots of the legs in progress in there :)

    If those don't help then where are you having trouble?

    Hey G1, I'd love to see more pics of the green lion. I sent ckstyles the betabuild files for the green lion but never heard back from him so I think it would be good for everyone else to see your build(which is another beautiful build by the way:mrgreen:)


    I would like to do instructions but not really sure how to go about it. How does Jan rukr the Aliens papercraft guy do his instructions, I would love to be able to do something like that. I suppose I could release the original pdo that I did for the red lion but don't laugh when you see it. It's a mess, when I started this model I was just starting to learn how to use 3d modeling programs and didn't realize I could use paste in place to make the model come together right when I imported several pdo files into pepakura, so keep in mind the 3d model is a bit jumbled around but if you need to you can just turn off each object as your building. I had to import the model a few times due to flipped faces so the file size is kinda big, like 6MB. Hope this helps. The second link is the pdo for the green lion

    :D Thanks very much! I appreciate that. As for a beta builder, I'm afraid there's not too much point anymore for the 2009 Camaro. Paul and Nothing are doing great jobs! Nothing is pretty much nearing the end.

    However, I would be looking for builders for the '77 Camaro version of BumbleBee soon. ;)

    Keep up the great work buddy.

    Hello all,

    Here's my build of the Green Lion :D

    V5 So far this model has been a pleasure to build. The legs are tricky but nothing I can't handle :p

    Note I haven't built the legs for the Green Lion yet as teh work week saps my energy so I make limited progress during the week so for picture purposes I snagged the legs from the Red Lion :p

    When I get the other set of legs done I'll post pics of them together.

    Cant wait to get the Blue Lion :D

    Oh Skip, don't look too far for those 77 Camaro builders. One is right here! I've only tried a paper car twice. The 1st a failure, the 2nd was ok but I tossed it anyway. I need more experience with em and what a better choice thant your Camaro :p

    Hope everyone likes the pics :D I'll try to take better pics next time :p

    Thanks

    Love these! I was a big fan of the voltron series as a child and actually still have the toy and the castle which this prompted me to dig out of the box in the shed.


    Thanks for bringing back a little bit of enjoyment from my childhood!!!

    Been avoiding unfolding the blue lions legs(PAIN IN THE A@#) so I decided to start building some parts for the black lion so far all I have done is the tail section. I'm going to unfold the legs today though and the model should be ready by friday, monday at the latest.:thumb:

    OK, this is very exciting. I love Voltron and this looks fantastic! I own the Voltron Masterpiece edition which blows the Trendmasters version away. The articulation alone in the masterpiece is worth the price. I am looking forward to all the lions completed :)

    Hey V5, sorry I can't get the RAR's open. I keep getting them corrupt. I am guessing it has something to do with the file transfer through my ISP's security. Nice one G1, I think I will sit this one out. Sorry!

    Black Lions wings are done, just need to unfold. Only modeling left is the black lions head and his legs:thumb: Hate to ask but my printer ran out of ink on me today, but would anybody be willing to do a quick test build of the wings?
