    I know it's not a transformer but I wanted to work on my Styrene skills... or the lack off!

    So now that the Playoffs are here I wanted to buy myself a Mighty Mug and paint it to look like a hockey player. Instead I decided to make my own using a template I found on the web. The template for cube players were cardboard cut outs... why not make it out of Styrene! So here's what I came up with... ENJOY!

    Canuck Cubes:

    DONE: took me an afternoon to build, now it's off getting primed!

    Thanks dude! it's been a really fun project so far and the wife is going to love it as it'll be sitting on her desk at work.

    Thanks Javaco! yeah I'm still trying to learn more about styrene before I try to do a full build on TF's. one of these days!

    Just post it here like you would another project thread. Make sure ALL of your photos are attached and that you use those links inside your tags. That saves me a lot of work :) 

    Make the "maybe" into a "yes, Quaddy, and I love you!"
