Yeah,. I guess so. One guy made an immobile Zeta out of fiberglass.If yo
want it to walk, better look at the internal structure of the 1/144 or 1/100
knee joints. If you have enough polycaps to melt and make a gint one, that
would be great, though I don't think polycaps melt ;) And as for walking,
you're better off paying for a 1/60 W0C and buying little motors for it than
trying to outfit the giant W0. Unless you do win he lottery or know someone
very, very, very rich with cash to spare.
