It's a work in progress at this point, but I'm pretty happy with how it's coming along. Most everything is made from materials I had on hand (I'm a bit of a hoarder) and old static props that I modified for my purposes. T...

If you look back at my PART 1, you'll see that for the base I used a model from Thingiverse. Once you have the model 3D printed, you will need to add in the 9 gram servos. ...
