    Thanks!!! Didn't want to post because it doesn't transform.
    He is large 14.5 inch and made of wood. wish I knew how to work with styrene but I have worked with balsa before.
    Here are pictures of it assembled.

    For a first-time project like this, this is great! Working with styrene is really not much different than working with wood (in my opinion, it's easier than wood). You just find the right sizes/pieces/sheets, and build it up, sand it out, and slap some paint on it. But the artist in me says to work with whatever you feel comfortable with and ease into other things. Excellent work on this--it kinda gives off an "Animated-style" Centurion Droid (like those from the old G1 "The Key to Vector Sigma"). Keep up the great work--hope to see more from you, man.

    This is really top notch work. Wood is definitely your preferred medium. You can either keep working with it, or play around with some styrene now and then. It looks like you certainly have the skills.

    Keep up the good work!

    Very cool ,you nailed the whole Lugnut/Omega mix perfectly.
    I like your different approach with using wood,be interested to know how you've made him.
    For a first time bash this is fantastic.

    Dude, Radicons is all about making stuff, it doesn't have to always transform! And so far, it's looking really good.

    Think the next one will be made out of styrene. anybody have a good how to for a newbie. I think the next one will be smaller this to big next to the other ones I have should have just made him leader class. I guess on the next one.
