    I heard somewhere that people can scratch build a Transformer using a product called styrene. Where can you find it, and is there a tutorial(s) on using styrene?

    It's a thick plastic sheet. You can find it at hobby shops.

    Basically, you cut the shapes you need and glue them together.

    If your in a University town, they usually have hobby-shops for architect students. That's where I found mine.
