    even if you cant find styrene sheets remember there are other ways to obtain those kind of materials from unexpected places. like from plastic for sale signs, or for clear the main section of a two liter of pop, also some peices of restaurant signs inside that change every few months are also made of styrene that they are just going to throw out. remember to keep these ideas in mind and you will always have access to sheet styrene in one form or another. -Primeone

    I like the way your going, I really like using Bumble bee as the real wheel assembly. I'm looking forward to see where you go with this.
