    Here's todays update.

    I actually spent the whole day figuring out how to cut the material to form the barrel of the cement truck.

    Finally I realized what I was doing wrong. In order to fold into a concentric cylinder I needed to cut out the shape of a wedge.

    The only manilla I could get my hands on was orange. No worries I will paint it afterwords.

    I was feeling lazy, so I printed out the decepticon symbol instead of drawing it.

    It was not as simple as sticking the symbol onto it. The barrel is angular, whilst the decepticon symbol is on flat paper, so I had to cut it into 8 peices and glue each to the barrel separately. There's some gaps in it, but I am satisfied with how it came out, certainly preferred to me actually painting out the symbol.

    Sigh ... I cannot believe I spent my entire birthday working on a Radicon..

    P.S. Any tips on how to attach the barrel firmly to a motor, so that it doesn't go loose
