    just got done doing my 80's "jane fonda" work out.... I think your on the right track, and I agree, get the basic's done and then you can go back and add the "details" and get the "kinks" worked out.

    ok a bit more progress. Had a discussion with some mates who visited last weekend about the armature for the robot. The options for me are either pvc pressure pipe or aluminium. Ali would be stronger and thinner and work well but would require a fair bit of welding to make work. PVC is softer a bit heavier but I do have a decent on going supply of pressure pipe that I can get for free. So money talks loudest at this point so I am going to trial a PVC armature and see how it goes. What could possibly go wrong right?

    I've built a basic ply box for the wheels of the lower foot. I've got a piece of 60mm pressure pipe that will sit in the box and with the help of a small ply ring hold up the upper foot and knee. There's very little weight in the foot/ knee bits so it's easy to hold up. The 60mm pipe travels up to the middle of the knee ready for the knee joint.

    Overall I'm happy with how it's looking in relation to the model and the limited screen shots I have. I've made a few changes here and there but their minor and the legs feel right at this point.

    Here's the foot base. Oh yeah I made my bloody side guard bit too short by 20mm and it needed to be taller by about 8mm gah!

    I'm working on a form for the wheel caps and have most of the detail for the back of the lower foot. There's still an additional set of wheels and shocks for the back for the foot. I'm debating whether to make these or not they might have to be added later

    you can find PVC pipe connectors-fittings-angles etc. that will fit aluminum tubing. I think you can have the best of both worlds without the welding.

    ok one more I've started mucking around with paint finishes. I've got a rough idea of what direction I'd like to go in but it's fun busting out the paint and having a go I'm thinking of weathering it like kitset tank or something but I have no experience doing this

    C and C most welcome.
