I have received Hyperdyne's electronics, and have the servos on order. As soon as I get them, I can start on the main body. First I will tackle the legs, but before I begin, let me know if you guys want the instructions to go into detail on how to articulate them? It's going to be more work for you as a builder, but then you can pose the legs. It will also require you to buy some more brass stock - not a ton though.
I suggest that you all get one of these for this model build as you will be cutting a fair amount of brass tubing - it also comes in handy for a lot of other builds, too. I use mine all the time:
Amazon.com: 2" High Speed Mini Miter/Cut-Off Saw, #919: Home Improvement
Also buy some Aves Apoxie Sculpt, or your choice of putty. I also think I'm going to make a side mount for this model - so it can be hung from the wall! The Apoxie Sculpt will come in handy for anchoring in the mount point...
