When I had one leg ready I linked the details of the leg to the basic joints so that I could move and rotate them. I then duplicated the leg to create six in total, and then started working on the foundation of the body (Fig.13 - 15).

For the central part I made it from a sphere which I changed using Editable Poly, cutting off parts for the legs and other mechanisms (Fig.16 - 21).
