Thanks for that, I love what you did with the claws on the feet, I just used a standard bionical piece for Smaug's claws, but now I feel lazy for not customizing them.

On the other hand my customizing seems to last forever, itīs hard to draw the line and be content...the uncertainty still lies in the wings, if theyīre strong enough to support itīs own weight but that will get solved when built for real :)

I feel the same way about Smaug's wings too. I have a feeling that in real life the wings would not suspend under their own weight and would droop to the ground. That is why, if I were to build it with plastic bricks, I would just retain the skeleton of the wings and use fabric for the webbing. If your wings don't doesn't work out you could always try something like that.

Thatīs why I tried to build the wings as compact as possible with the highest amount of locking hinges in between each individual section of the wings. I also tried to make the wings as sleak as possible without losing to much cohesiveness. But you never know with digital design. That makes it exciting! Using fabric in the wings is great for your Smaug if you plan to build it. It would massively reduce your parts total. 3400 parts are not cheap if you have to buy it all! Thatīs why I ended up with 1700+ parts.
