Heavy Gear Barnaby Scratchbuild

Well, I say 'scratchbuild' but really I'm relying heavily in a couple of ways in two previous Barnaby projects - Paul Lesack's papercraft Barnaby to save me measuring too much, and Sam Wood's excellent Barnaby scratchbuild (which unfortunately seems to have fallen off the web) for an idea of a good parts breakdown. But since I'm not sourcing parts from either project, I can still feel comfortable calling it a scratchbuild. ;-)

Anyway, from that you should know what a Barnaby looks like, and possibly what it's for, if you didn't already. Now, a succession of in-progress photos of the parts I'm making.
