Some front-end work

I got a 1/25 scale model of the Batpod today, which is super handy cause that is 1/10th the size of the 2/5 scale I’m making, so I can measure stuff on the model, multiply by 10, and that’s how big it should be for my scale.

First off, here’s the pivot area of the chassis on the actual batpod, so the parts I’m making will make more sense.

I finished the main tube pivot pieces:

Then I started on working on the box that connects the front “fork” tube to the pivot point. The green metal is some old brackets I had laying around, so I used them to save myself a few welds and to have 4 of the 8 edges be nice smooth edges. Need a lot of grinding cleanup, and some bondo smoothing down the road.
