This might be the best one out there and Kehlan said he will share it with the SCIFI 3D community when he's done.

Kehlan has a running thread in his own forums at Code03.net

There was a conflict between the McFarlane toy and my reference images concerning the control arms. They were a bit too long at the base as I suspected but it's no biggie because it's an easy fix. Anyways, managed to finish a lttle bit of the control box assy. This thing is going to take me forever... But it's fun.

Heres an update on the shoulders. They still need some hoses attached to them and they need to be tilted upwards a bit. But you get the idea. Gonna finish off the back now.

Cool. I'm done with the legs now. I'm going to go back and make some adjustments on all the bits I've done so far. Just stuff like the seat belt and cable adjustments. Then I'll start working on the arms and hopefully they wont take too long. Thankfully I only have to model 1 arm.

Just an update on the arm. I still need to finish the gun, add some hoses, add the ammo belt, make the ammo loader, finish the seat belt and some minor tweeks and adjustments.

Ok, a render for now. I might still make some adjustments to the cables plus do a few more renders at different angles, like the back and side. I'll start messing with the materials and textures here in a bit. Still bunch of stuff I want to do with this biotch.
