Eeeeek! Poor Centurion. He has two robot dogs there trying to get him. I see a K-9, right?

A very interesting approach on the build. I like it. Now what is the mannequin material you used on the arms, and legs.

I made a frame our of sheet steel for the body and 30mm steel tube for the legs. I then padded the steel legs out with pipe lagging insulation and wrapped it with ribbed rubber.

wow - How long did that take you? It seems every week you have a full blown project complete. Nice work. The fur looks great too? Did you find it locally (is there more)?

got the fur from Birmingham rag market.
I still have a few bits left.
The whole dog is far from screen accurate, but its the best I could do with the materials I could get my hands on.

Don't be too hard on yourself. Your Daggit looks great!

I'd be honored if you'd grant me permission to use your photos for the Fan-Made Replica Daggit folder in the gallery...

Stuff like this is always worthy to be shown as example what fans can do.

Thanks for your permission!
