    is that a 1/24 xaviercal. the construction looks very sound but I feel like it's a tad big for the body. I'm sure once the paints are on it'll pull it together better.
    Can't wait. :)

    That's pretty cool re-shelling a classic BB mold with a 1/24 scale vehicle shell - should look very nice alongside alternator figures

    Is that the "hippy" VW Beetle model? I have that one with WFC Bumblebee waiting to be done.

    If that is the model you are using, then are you doing anything to "firm up" the flimsy plastic?

    What I have in mind is pretty different than what you are doing... but yours is looking fantastic!
