    Well this started in the creative discussion forum, but I think i'm valid putting it here now considering we can have threads with random sketchup 3d models that show a shapeways intent :) 

    I am trying to put together (for nostalgia sake) a load of customs that remind me of the TFs I had when growing up. Now, we had little to no money and all I ever got by saving up was little tfs, combiner group members, firecons, throttlebots, minibots etc

    So i'm almost done with cindersaur, so im planning my next, which I'm going to attempt to scratch build....(I was a product design teacher so I have some skillz aha)

    I'm trying to produce Wideload

    I sat for three hours last night going through revisions of the design so that it can be easily made from styrene and i'm just looking for some initial feedback before I get cracking!

    Below is the to scale visuals and transformation sequence, step by step - what do you guys reckon?

    then i'm off to get some modelling materials this weekend to get started so opinions would be good asap hahaha!

    Thanks again guys for looking!
