    Thanks, everyone! I just ordered 3D prints of the last parts to make "Land Team 11" -- Voltron's lower torso/pelvis vehicle -- and I'm actively designing the four Sea Team vehicles (#7, 8, 9 and 10) that form Voltron's legs.

    Why does the left leg looks shorter on that model??

    I'm redesigning the leg vehicles in order to accommodate articulated knees. Part of the redesign involves lengthening the lower leg vehicles.

    The right leg is the work-in-progress redesign. The left leg is the older, shorter design.

    From the basic idea of matching Panosh Place to planning with foamboard to computer modeling and printed execution, this is by far my favorite custom ever.

    Seriously, massive applause for this. I cannot wait to see the finished product.

    Thanks for the kind words! I'm in awe of the various projects that I've seen on these forums, so to be compared favorably with any of them is a huge compliment!

    I'll share more updates in the coming days. :)
