    No problem. From what I can see, you don't need my help. The rust looks really nice!

    At the end of the vid, there's a URL to the "company's" Web site (Buy n Large), which actually works. Check out some of the other robot "products": Sall·E, Gar·E, Nanc·E, & Wend·E.

    Hmmmm.....Hit a snag.

    I just tried a vanilla build of the hands and neck and they are way too fiddly to build at their present size. So I guess im gonna have to scale up the entire build. Hang fire and i'll up date asap.

    Trader Sam, i've heard they will be adding to the site as it gets closer to release date, so it will be one to keep an eye on.

    Yeah, I thought that he would be a tricksky little fella at your present scale,
    double the size would be betta.

    I wish I could say I have made a lot of progress on the little fella, but I can't. :(

    I have continued to work on painting him and hopefully I will be able to bump him in size to make him easier to build without to much trouble.

    I did build one side of his tank track and wheels but ink started to run out as I was printing, so it has a greenish hue for now (It wont be like that on your builds because you would never let your tanks dry out, would yo? :p). I also put the tank track on back to front too, opps, thank the paper gods this is only a scruffy test build. I might post a picture later if I have time.

    Don't give up on me just yet. ;)

    Still need good reference photos? MouseTimes.com has some excellent photos of a Wall·E maquette, starting here.

    I found a Wall·E paper model somewhere, but I can't find it. Anyhow, it wasn't very accurate, and it didn't look NEARLY as good as yours, Rebostar!

    By golly, that's the one. Odd that I couldn't find it; I always check that site now and then.
