Giant Ant (step 3) - the mock up

The next phase was to build a quick mock up of the ant, so I could figure out just how big this thing was going to be.

I used some 1" x 2" pine, a nail gun with 1 5/8" brads, and some string to piece together the framework.

It wasn't exact, but at least it gave me a sense of what I was getting into!

(me vs. the giant ant!)

I was also able to map out a rough footprint for the ant's footprint, which can be helpful when building a giant ant.
