1:72 "Ackwisch" walking tank (inspired by Patlabor & Gundam, based on a Merkava tank) - WIP

Close-up onto the Kotobukiya doll ball joints which I will use on this project in roder to hold the legs in place and still keep them moveable. These things are perfect for the job, there's even enough innate resistance in the joints that it can "hold" up a leg in the air, and the tank's hull can still be carried by other legs. Should allow some spectacular pictures later... ;)
