The model is fairly fragile, and very intricate. It's also quite pose-able, but I failed to upload those pics. It was by far the most difficult model I've ever attempted to build. It was like putting together a big jigsaw puzzle without a picture to look at for reference. I had to experiment A LOT to find out what worked and what didn't.... I learned a lot while building it, and I hope to make more stuff later.
Yea, I don't have any T's either, I mostly used pieces that weren't really made to move a lot. I used rods in a "lantern" piece with the "lantern connected on to the rest of the body by two plates so it can swivel... Not sure how else to describe it... Here, I'll put a couple pictures...
The hardsuit itself, the "lantern" deal I used with the legs to make the bottom half of them, the shins, at that angle.
Unfolded. Simple, just a regular hinge piece.
The gun, used the Bionicle method to give the arm full movement, pretty much.
