Lego Arthropleura Armata by Stevolteon Lego Arthropleura Armata by Stevolteon
A life sized(ish) model of an ancient giant millipede. The model is around a metre and a half long and is poseable along its length. It also has a leg wiggling mechanism which you can see in action here.

Have you thought of trying other creatures like Anomalocaris?

Not extensively yet, this melding of two interests was prompted by a project for a museum, although now you mention it I could probably adapt the leg mechanism into an effective swimming one...

In case it's of interest one of the other guys involved in the project did some oceanic life including a Nautilus and an Ammonite which you can see here: www.flickr.com/photos/rogueban…

I know, right? It's simultaneously a big shame and a big relief that they're not around any more!
