So, work continued here and there over the holiday. I had gotten to a point where I figured I would leave it for now.

That was until last night when it toppled over!!!

I felt that the base was not large enough. However, it appears that the knee joint gave way. I had it pinned with brass rod, but it seems it wasn’t strong enough.

Anyway, I think I may do some repainting on some parts of it now.
