    Looks great. It will be the best city Transformer ever. Here's an idea for the eyes, two separate red eyes with a pull down blue visor.

    well here is my almost daily update lol ...
    now the second part of tower #2 is coming along great but is a bit tricky and you can easily screw it up ! also notice some of the add-on's that are on that tower ... this tower is now 9 hours worth of production man this thing is going to take time lol
    the other tricky thing is to make sure that all building have unique caracteristics and at the same time blend perfectly with the rest.... this one has shall we say unique features .
    so enjoy !!

    Ooo, this is really is becomming a thing of beauty. Definately a true masterpiece in the making.

    You should document your every step and share it with us so we might be able to take instruction from you and make one ourselves. You must be so far advanced at kitbashing. This is an amazing project and amazing quality, and amazing progress you're making. I'm just a beginner and I can only dream of comming up with a project like that.

    What materials are you building that from again?

    This makes me want to try a Quintesson I've always wanted.

    I can't wait to see it when it's done. And for good measure do you think you could stand a Fortress Maximus next to it?

    well that's what i'm doing a bit... daily updates should give you a good idea, as for exact instruction that would not be possible since i change so many things that i did the day before it would become a nightmare for all of us to do lol

    but i'm sure that if you build something and learn from your sucesses and failures and not give up , you'll be able to do this kind of work... trust me you dont learn this overnight... i've been doing theses kind of things for a long time !!

    as for materials; basically it's styrene sheets of different thickness

    and as for a size comparition with fort max here it is !!

    That looks incredible.

    Don't take this the wrong way, but these daily updates look like a lot is done every day, do you have a job? Or are you self employed or something? Or is this just something you're doing in your spare time and just have a phenomenal work rate?

    Can't wait to see it finished.

    Thats a lot of work in 3 hours then, you're a fast worker!

    Out of interest, I've never seen any more of your stuff, anyone got any links to other projects?
