The video shows a Second Life version that I'm working on. It's a little bigger than Ray's, and still can't achieve lift yet, but if the rivets hold then it should be airborne soon.
There are quite a lot of prims involved in the pipe-work, so a large part of it is going to have to be an attachment. And don't get me started on the pose - the only way I can stop the avatar bending freely at the waist is to use a looping wiggle. Any alternative suggestions are welcome.
