The questions we should be asking are these:
Does it have dungeons?
Does it have dragons?
Does it have transients who kill things for money?  Do you roll a d20?

Thanks  for the kind words guys. 

I have not been feeling well this week so I have been doing nothing but stare at it for the past week seeing all the flaws it has.  I thing the worst has past for now.  I hope to get to it real soon because there is a contest I would like to enter once this is done.

ooh, that sucks.

It's very hard to keep metal glued together

I can't tell from the pics. Was it pinned? If you pin them well it will hold up much better.

I didn't think that I would need to on the tail and head because  I felt the weight of the tail/head wasn't that much campared to the surface area the locktite could adhere too.   The secoundary legs would have been locked into a mold of green stuff when I got the base  going.   Goes to show that pinning is definately nessessary even though you don't think you need it.   Hey, the leg and arm held up well. :laughing6:

I got used to pinning everything that wasn't to small a long time ago just to avoid issues (the kids knocking things around).
