Leg work

I've been busy over the past two weeks working on the first of three legs. It's rough, but it also doesn't have the final layer of skin/bondo to smooth it out. I chose to continue the styrene construction and scratch build my legs from 1/4" styrene material. Ankles will follow once I have both outer leg sections built. I was given a piece of 6" schedule 40 pvc piping that could work for the leg to body hub. I haven't decided if I'm going to use pipe or not.
Anyway, here's some progress pics.

Hey Calvin - thanks for the comment. Yeah, it's Dave's design. I debated back and forth of runnin his design and extending it to one piece leg and ankle, but decided to roll with the plans "as is".

The weather is starting to get a little nicer here in NY, so I'll be back to painting soon - good incentive to get these prepped before then!!
