Hi there everybody! I've been really admiring the work you radicon's have been doing. Especially those of you who tackle the amazing heavy scratch-built Masterpieces! So, with all the time I've got, I'm seriously considering diving straight into it. But, I don't want to go over my head as well. So any suggestions as to an easy character to do? I'm thinking of making BumbleBee out of a 1/25 scale Volkswagen Beetle model kit. However, I have no clue what to do with it. I'm also thinking of doing either Rumble or Frenzy if I can still find a regular-sized cassette tape. Also, what materials do you use to build it with? I see a lot of styrene work, but what thickness is best? Tubes, sheets, metal, plastic, wood, what? Suggestions, tips, ideas, thoughts?
