The goal is to get to be about 7'. My buddy and I are the same height in real life, and I plan to be a liiiiiiitle bit taller in my armor ;)

So I finished assembling the feet. Here's a shot of the inside of the left boot. The PVC caps are bolted down, the hinges installed and there's a spring on the hinge to limit the toe's travel downward when I walk. There's also a metal brace on the sole to limit downward toe flex.

Image

I also added a band around the outside of the boots so I could move the "pivot" for the toe sections outward so it looks more correct. Walked around a bit on the feet. PVC holding fine. This is going to take some getting used to.

A little more progress. None of the internals on the lower legs are done yet, but the outer shell is.

The additional benefit being that when she's on those stilts, I can kiss her without having to bend way down, so it's yet another win for the project! ;)

I'm 6' even in bare feet, she's 5' and 3/4 of an inch. In the armor legs she's just a little taller than I am since I designed the stilts to provide about 14" of lift.

Psh, ya'll. I'm a bit over 6'3 and my wife's 5'1.

But on a more important note, Arctic, those are looking awesome! Excited to see as more parts start coming to be.

Thanks! Yeah now that I have parts that are recognizably Space Marine, it's feeding my motivation in a big way. All of my other hobbies have been on hold for weeks now.
