Day gum man. How do you do it? (you don't need to answer that)
Is it actually rigged with armatures and moving parts? Have you taken engineering classes? Are you building one part at a time and piecing it all together in a way that would work if it was ever created in the real world?
It's linked in a hierarchy so that it's poseable, but it's not yet rigged in a strict sense. I'll be doing that as time permits. I haven't taken formal coursework on mechanical design, but the aesthetics and construction seem straightforward enough. The mecha itself was build up as a series of separate parts, as that seems to be the most logical way to build something like this.
