Damn, this is my 3rd post today, I'm on a roll..... But anyways...... So the other day, me and a friend were discussing what I should do next. I was showing him some of the stuff on you guys have done, just to help him help me come up with something good. Then I showed him Anemis's BFM (Big F**kin Metroplex) he's been working on and the little lightbulb lit up over both of our heads almost at once..... I decided that I want to attempt a full sized, working boombox (only modernized, with a cd player) that transforms into soundwave. I was wondering if anyone has ever done this and if so, can they post a link to some pics I could use as a refference. I also was thinking that since it would be handeled quite frequently, it would be better to try and dye the majority of it. However, I have zero experience with dyes so I was wondering: A) do they make dye in purple? B) How well does dying really work? C) where would one obtain said dye? And D) would dyeing be a good choice? Like I said, it would probably be transformed back and forth quite often. Any help, suggestions, or ideas you could give me would be greatly appreciated. I really wanna do this because I feel that since I don't have much experience, a bigger project would be a good way to teach myself how to scratch-build with styrene. Plus, since I'm planning on keeping it as close to the g1 mold as possible (mostly hard angles and straight lines), it wouldn't be too much of a challenge for a newbie like myself. The only think I'm hung up on are the hands (which shouldn't be THAT hard given the size) and the head (I contacted sculpt-bot, but haven't herd back yet) since I've never molded anything before.
