    You should sell these on eBay when their finished...cause I want them. BTW, will Soundwave and Prime be able to transform?

    no they don't transform,i do prefer robot mode,that why i don't built them transformable.it less complicated too!

    as for sell them on ebay....i don't think i could get what i want for prime,just in styrene and glue(which is expensive) i must have buy for 400$ since the beginning,so for now it must have cost 500$...but on ebay ,we never know!

    plus i add light in eyes and on front of the chest.he will also speak,i use the electronic from the optimus masterpiece.

    Are you buying packs of styrene like evergreen from a hobby store? Because that would get very very expensive for something this big.

    I would look into buying a 4x8 sheet from a local supplier.

    They won't get it for you, but you could probably contact a local dealer. I called up a place that deals with industrial shops and got a 4'x8' piece of styrene that is 1/16" thick for around 17 bucks. For as much as you are using, it would probably be worth to check out if you can get it locally somewhere.

    Holy cow that's incredible. That Ark really struck me, along with the scale of these things. Great work Krade.

    I bought 4x8 sheets of styrene and sintra from a local company out in CA, and again here in NJ. Sintra 1/4" is about $30 per 4x8 sheet, while styrene runs about 80 for a 4x8 sheet.

    I'm glad you were able to find some. The only real advantage to hobby shop stuff is that you can get patterns on them, and I'll occaisonally buy it just for that.
