The cannon will cover about a third of the octagonal base in the first pic (although the base will change completely. There will also be a cockpit for the pilot, and 2 other units, one mounted at the back and another to the other side.

and as for the plans.... aah I don't want to spoil it

The drive section of the leg is complete, and I added a little more detail to the legs. you can see the pipes here. I need to figure out how to get the drive gear to turn in the opposite direction to the gear on the leg joint.... looking that up now.

<update> got the gears meshing with set driven keys, thanks to kevin for the free SDK tutorials.

I have a rendered anim of the gear section turning, but it's too big to post, even as a rar. I'll see if I can compress it a bit more.


here is the leg joint section complete now, apart from two bits I will do at the end. this will attach to the base when that is done.

Taking great shape Ed !!

Have you designed a walk cycle yet? That can be difficult with only 2 legs, I think you have your work cut out for you with 8....

Also, if you need a place to upload video, you might try: http://savefile.com/ . Free file hosting of up to 60MB per file.
