Here is more progress on the 3D base for my future cut-away of H.G. Well's War of the Worlds' Tripod "Fighting Machine." I've finally figured out a decent enough 'basket' design for the back to store helpless human victims prey to vicious, ruthless martians. In the book they are described as a 'fisherman's basket' which has a woven look, but not as excitingly designed as I wanted it to be. Through most of this model I am taking a lot of 'artistic license' in keeping to the original descriptions.
All I have left now are the whips protruding from behind the 'eye' and the upper legs, and lower tentacle legs plus the 'feet' or 'toes.' I'll keep you updated on the progress when I can. Enjoy!
