    I am going to try a dareing kit bash soon and there is one bit of help I need right off the bat. I am sure I could figure it out on my own, but why loose time with all the experiance here eh?

    If anyone knows a good clean way to reinforce the thin plastic in model kits so they could servive transformation please let me know.

    I wa thinking maybe thin foam pads. I figure it's not too expensive, and it keeps the flex of the mode.

    or you can make a mold (sillicone) of your plastic model and trim the inside of the inner mold so that when you make your piece, the inner of your frame will be thicker then your actual model.... that's what i've done when i made my classic bumblebee and works like a charm....
