Maybe try to close that front toe somehow, and beef up the heel?
The front toes are separated in the reference pictures, but you are right, I need to beef up the heel.
Try to replicate some of that detail on your leg to spruce up the bland wall of flat blocks.
You are right. I tried doing something like this while I was building it, but got fed up and quit. The way I built the lower part is pretty convoluted and didn't allow for much greebling I though about using stickers, but don't have any on hand, and don't know which ones would look good. It would be cool if I had an actual working panel there. just imagine an enemy soldier running up, opening the panel, and dropping a grenade inside.
I'd be more concerned about it's stability, the toes look like they're cosmetic and can't take a load very well.
You are absolutely right. The toes are 100% cosmetic. The foot was pretty hastily built and i'm relying on a 2x4 brick with smooth plated on the bottom for my connection with the ground. what bricks would you use to make the toes take more of the weight, while still allowing them to move?
I'd focus on getting the upper done to check the load on the legs.
That's what I was thinking. I need to build the other leg, then the middle joint.
I might just end up rebuilding the bottom leg from scratch. What do you guys think? Keep the suggestions coming!
