Warhound Titan Part 2: legs assembly

Next step for the titan are the legs. I didn’t do anything really innovative here. My advice still is to reinforce the joints, especially the knees and the hip. I tried to glue them only with the 2-component epoxy resin I used for the feet but it didn’t bear its own weight when standing straight. So I came back to the workbench and drilled some holes to reinforce the joint with nails.

The rounded head of the nails I used to reinforce the knees will give a nice touch when painted.
