Project - R - pt 5. She's got leeegggssss...

Right, ok, so while you try to get ZZ Top out of your head, movin on with the construction.

**update** now with pix. 

Finally got the hip assembly formed up and cast.  That leaves the last parts still to make are the main torso and arms.  The torso is about 1/2 way there, but it's going to take a bit.  Building the cockpit in and setting up all the lighting is what's going to slow that up a bit.  I think that'll be the one part I end up *not* casting.  If by some chance I ever get someone wanting me to get them parts for the Archer, I"ll just build up another. 

The arms I definitely plan to cast.  I like the look of the MWO design and I have a thought of how to do the joints.  I would definitely like poseability built into this one.   

 I've got all the cast parts sitting in the soap bath and getting ready for work.  I would like to get a little progress in on just putting some of it together.  You know, ADD and all. 

Pics coming later.. not today.  : )..Ok, I lied, Pic today:

The stack of parts after washing and first pass of color on the foot.

Lots more to do.. but getting there.
