Very exciting to finally get all the parts in and machining finished so that I could finally fully assemble a prototype leg.  Couple of hiccups here and there but it will be fully usable for performance testing and the initial Shakedown cruise.  Once I fix a few assembly bugs I'll document how it is assembled.

Here is the fully assembled leg:
