    this particular brand of reflective tape doesnt bend around a sharp edge, so what I did was cut several pieces and butt them up to one another. An example of this is on his left upper body (helipad) where the red stickers are in front. and if you want, you can take your used sticker sheet and cut out around whatever sticker you want to use the reflective tape as a template. apply the sticker to the tape and cut where the open area where the sticker used to be.

    Sounds like a really cool project, but all I keep seeing is the Baroness :D 

    But seriously that is looking really sharp... and that takes a lot of Patience to tackle such a big project. Really great work :)

    thanks guys! for the large autobot symbol all i did was take a reprolabels large AB sticker (white on clear background) and apply it to the reflective tape and then cut around the edges. its a great effect.

    Thanks for the info Zedz. I hit up Home Depot earlier and they were right where you said they'd be.

    This would also look great on the DOTM Ark playset
