    Thanks for your compliments. Sorry for the wait on the actual downloadable model. The real world is a drag and I don't have much free time during the normal week :nope:. I can only really make any progress on weekends.

    I will release the downloadable model ahead of the instructions in case you want to get a head start. The instructs might take me a while since I've never made instructs for papercraft before. So I'll try and take a novel approach to it. Some of the parts might be a bit strange to build so I'll try and make sure the instructions are clear--but I think you experienced builders can figure it out. :thumb:

    :inw:Congrats, this model turned out very nice! This is one I will definitely be making, I like how professional the textures look I really need to learn how to texture like that.

    Thanks! Oh yeah, definitely, more transformers on the way. I want to do the more obscure ones, so I think I'll follow OhGodWhy's request to do Arcee next. :mrgreen:

    A very nice compliment, thanks, V5.

    Hope the model comes out well. Let me know if there are any improvements I can make (even small ones). That goes for anyone else too. :mrgreen:

    Thanks everyone. Your words are great source of encouragement.:thumb:

    I've been working on the instructions and basically am doing another build of the entire model as a last quality check. I've found several little things like fold lines that were missing.

    The instructions will take me a bit longer than I thought to make. However I will be updating the model with missing score/fold lines to help clear any ambiguity with some parts. I'll release an updated model today sometime.

    You won't have to necessarily reprint anything (unless you want to). You can use the updated model as a reference on how to score/fold those missing lines.

    loudog49, thank you very much for making this model and sharing free of charge with rest of the world. I will work on your model as soon as I am finished with voltron5's Optimus Prime.

    Thanks a lot!! :thumb:

    Thanks everyone for all nice comments.

    I promised instructions for this model. Its not very complex but these instructions allow me to say that this model is completely done. The links here now point to a ZIP file with both parts and instructions. I will update the link on the first page too.

    Megaupload Link

    Its time to move on to the next project. I'll start a new thread when I have some decent progress.

    Perfect timing!! I finally printed this model, and came looking for this thread for pics to use as a guide. The instrctions will definitely come in handy.

    Thanks again!!!
