    Here is the Official wind mechanism I am working on. I like it so much more. It has more movement. It also has places to mount the three animatronic eyes going up it. They will be attached to the doubled piece of 1X2 metal, connected to the Berring. Work in progress I hope it will work out.

    Oh ya, besides doing stuff like this I cook. Here is a cake I made for my friend, The chocolate icing is piped on. and the round things on it are called Dragaes, yes you can eat them. The top of the cake has a piece of chocolate on it (Dark and white swirled together. The flowers are also piped icing. The leaves were made by smearing chocolate on them and cooling them, they were later peeled off and put on the cake. It's a 3 layer chocolate cake with raspberry ganache filling. It was made withe real Ganache, real Ganache contains Bitter almonds in it (REFINED). Bitter almonds contain cyanide poison. If it is not processed properly or if you have too much it can kill you. Biscotti also contains bitter almonds. I am a cook, who likes exotic foods. It is important to know these things. Specially since I do not want to harm the many girls who enjoy my cooking.

    Anyways here are more photos of the wings. I am rather dissapointed on the fact I goofed up on some of the measurements. Wings are really hodge podged but they work. Thats what counts!

    Finally had some free time to work on this guy again today. Today I have started on the neck Mechanism. It uses 1 small 3 inch stroke cylinder to turn the head, and the other two cylinders are double ended with 4 inch stroke on each side. By using two double ended cylinders I can get a hell of alot of motion than using a single stroke cylinder.
