    I've decided to tackle the Dog from Half Life 2. I love Mecha, and have been doing easy builds for awhile, so time for a challenge. :) Pics to come as I progress :)

    body

    For anyone who wants to build this, I suggest creativity. The parts fit nicely, but its taking some patience :)

    Parts fit is almost perfect, but practical attaching is difficult to say the least. again, Patience. :)

    That thin really has a "it may be post apocalyptic, but I'm a scientist and know how to make things to mess you up" look to it! Coming along nicely.

    Here's my current progress. Finished the body, just working on the legs at the moment.

    Excuse the excessive white. It's a bit of a rushed job. Got calculus mid terms next week :cry:

    This looks great. d0g didn't wasn't much for words, but he was definitely one of my favorite characters in HL2. If you feel up to it, the HEV suit might be a fun sequel to this project.
