Well I guess if someone wanted to, they could say there is a small pilot inside, but unless you've perfected miniaturized motors and engine technology there isn't going to be much space inside that shell.
Although, you've given me an idea for an alternative chest plate and optional "head" to go on top.
I don't really enjoy painting minaitures though. If I don't have a clear idea of what I want them to look like going in, I just agonize over every detail. Those models are about 2 years old and are still unpainted.
Part of the reason I think I'm migrating to paper models is that I don't have to paint them. Coloring them digitally is still a bit agonizing for me, but I can make mulitple color schemes without ruing a model, and then just print my favorite.
Adam, you could probably do a robot that is similar to Streetbot Willy from Smart Max. It is kind of similar to what you are doing. I could see the round disk you made for the other robots as the head. Well just a random idea.
That's a pretty cool little robot there. I could easily do something similar, and I probably will now...
Mostly, I was just trying to simplify the first Klunky. I originally used a limb attachment method similar to "Nobody"s designs. It worked, but it was labor intensive, and not the most intuitive method.
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)
