Good greif that's awesome!! i really like the work you've put into this......the rivets really make a big difference IMo to some other transformers bots I've seen modeled.

Simply put......FANTASTIC!!!

The rivets are done with the aid of a shareware shader I got here:
Fi's shaders (http://www.infoseek.livedoor.com/%7Ef_ichikawa/index.html)
Thanks for the compliments :)

Beautiful work. Kicks butt over the older versions on your site :)

Can you tell us which shader you used and explain a little about how you used it to get the rows of rivets?

Oh also, are you planning to upate Optimus to the Armada version too?

This is a link to the plugin I used:
http://www.infoseek.livedoor.com/%7Ef_ichikawa/plug-in/FIsShaders-i-R4_1.zip
It's quite a way down the page, and is called FI's Shaders.

Once installed, the shader shows up in your list as CG_RivetsShader. It's fairly simple to use; you can select the mapping type (just like an image map), size of the panels/rivets, even the rivet colour.
You can also specify the size and amount of noise (dirt) on the panels, bump depth (for both panels and rivets) the numberof rivets to be used, and even an amount of colour variation between the panels themselves.
The way the panels and rows of rivets bend is a result of the parts being morphed into Prime's robot mode; they are straight rows in his truck mode.

This is awesome! The textures are fantastic and the lighting is wonderful. These pictures have me drooling for more!
