War of the Worlds Tripod (part 3)

Here is some more progress on the War of the Worlds tripod work in Google SketchUp.  This, again, is only so I have something to rotate around into the angle I need it rather than having to figure out what might be going on when I draw it in a different perspective.  Here is a link to the original sketch: tripod 
It has been interesting trying to teach myself 3D, but a rewarding factor is seeing how menacing the thing can look when rotated to another angle.  You can't always anticipate that when drawing one angle 2Dimensionally.
Here is a sketch I quickly did during break at work.  I've been trying to think of how some of the framework might look within the tripod.  I want it to look alien and organic, yet still have a mechanical and structural look. 
Anyway, stay tuned for more when I become able to work on the project and post stuff here!
