Ah Pony Maestro has entered Knowing you and your ways for some time now I have a sense that there's an evil masterplan behind this image coming up. Having us suspended in the air then letting us guess growl. Evil.

Judging from the picture you posted I would guess you're modeling an aircraft Have fun with this one m8.

Things are going slow as I have had helth problems but getting better now.

Pain = Can't think.

Anyway, here is a ruff idea of the hydrolics tendonts etc.
black = endo-skeleton
blue = hydrolics
green = tendonts or pistons

Sorry to hear you're not feeling well. Pls get well soon.

Interesting concept, will the bot be skeletal looking, or do you plan to had some surface area. Looking forward to seeing this in progress.

I like the evil red look. When this challenge is over you have to teach me everything you know about horses and horse anatomy. Looking forward to see this develop.

Also best wishes of swift recovery and good health.

surfermcd, yeah sorry about the horror one. but it will see the light of day, er the dark of night sometime. thanks.

Alpha, thanks. and sure. The hardest parts of a natrual horse are : maniging the long main and tail, getting the short fur to look right in difrent shots, and the eye's are hard to get right and socketed becouse there oval not round. ... ... oh yeah there knees er wrist really have 2 rotation points, not one.

If anyone can make this dangerous Terminator pony, I'm sure it's you. Now get into it and show us what it can do

Good to hear you're feeling better as well.

Demon, thanks very much.

Vlad, it really has a very good use I think. But I'm not going to spill the beens just yet. I'll wait a little later in the challange for that.

hint, its about the only valid use for this robot there probably is. In other words its the one thing some other design, like humanoid, couldn't do better.
