    Surprised more people don't try this idea - especially with the non-transforming customs.
    This looks fantastic - can't wait to see the progress.

    How did you make the wheels? This is looking really good, can't wait to see it with some paint on it. Are you going to blend the two arm side panels together or are you removing the plastic one after?
