    Well...after four months and about 200 hours I am done!
    Huge k.o. optimus for skeleton and parts, styrene, 1/24 Peterbilt model, DMK parts, and some other random stuff...

    AND A HUGE THANKS FOR FAKEBUSKER FOR THE BUSTER KNUCKLE FULLY ARTICULATED HANDS!!!!

    Head, shoulder guards, forearm guards, each "toe", doors, ankles, wrists, and waist, all either on a ball joint or double ball joint

    tons of interior details... I like the steering wheel and seats behind the windshield pieces..haha(artistic liberties there)
    6 LEDs
    shoulders, hips/thighs,biceps, elbows, knees(added to frame), and finger articulation.


    He stands at almost 18 inches tall...
    I learned A LOT from this guy..
    I will have more pics coming this weekend.

    Thanks for looking.
