    Here is the finished "pelvic" section.

    I attached the legs.

    I set my coffee cup (which is half again larger then an average coffee cup) next to the legs to show the size.

    This is the beginnings of the "torso" section.

    Thank you for the compliment! I do not think that I will have the entire project finished before X-mas. I still have quite a bit of work to do. I am planning to build the patlabor maintenance facility for it as well. When it is finished, it (should) look (something) like this:

    I like your solution better!! The pdf is openable..but the page you wanted had a glitch, maybe with the layers..works fine for pdf or anything but opening! But ..I don't let little things like that stop me...if you run into something like this again..give a holler...may be I can help.. I have it broken down to individual pdf's...when opening page 9 to inkscape...it wanted to allocate 6,291,456 bytes to open...it crashed ;)

    Thank you! The reason why I chose the maintenance bay to display the Patlabor robot is because I think that it looks better and adds another dimension to the model as a whole. I will start the maintenance bay once I start finish robot. I will be posting photos of the build (of course ;))

    Thank you! I am building this for my son. Once it is finished, it will be up to him to keep it dust free. ;)
