 +  * Welding effect - thanks to Jenna! - Using "bunched up" lines of hot glue applied to sheets of MDF for the 3D texture, then coating in a solid under layer of black paint, followed by rapid dry brushing of silver and just a hint of gold for a slightly bronzy/brassy look. 
 +  * iron exhaust pipes - toilet rolls. "Pipe kinks" achieved by cutting ends cut on slight diagonals, and hot gluing for bonus welding. 
 +  * Legs moved by virtue of Ostrich ankles tied to actors.
