    I wanted to get into scratch building but every time i tried I'd just get overwhelmed and never start, so i decided to start with something small and somewhat pointless. i noticed that in the movie Optimus had this giant metal thing on the rear of the cab, so i decided to try making that, it's made from a bunch of styrene and then just painted silver, i also made a clip that fits in between his arms to fill the gap in truck mode, again all pointless stuff, the problem with the clip was matching the blue, its a bit off but I'm too lazy to try again. then i took some rod styrene cut it at an angle and gave him new smoke stacks i know the picture quality isn't the best, but all i have is a cell phone camera.

    Holy crapola. If that's your first time messing around with styrene, you've owned me in a big way. The first time I started messing around with making 3D stuff and styrene, I was lost. :lol 

    Hell of a job, especially on that back plate. It really makes him look like the vehicle from the film. Good work, dude.
