Armed and dangerous.

I finished the robotic arm and got it installed on a nice little linear bearing mover with my rotation table on top of it. The arm can reach any part of the set in natural (though mechanical) poses. I don't want to say too much about who or what is attached to the other (off-screen) end of the arm. The pictures below are pretty bad, and the set still is not lit, but it gives an idea of what's going on there.

And this is the Tom Brierton armature that is mostly hidden under the mechanical bits.....

Now for lighting and then on to animation!

Please help if you can ;)
