Welcome to my bio! Hopefully has some of my MOC's catched your interest. My MOC's tries to closely capture the original design, proportions and specific details, to an effordable building cost, without putting money on hard-to-get-parts or unusal colors. I'm glad to combine my profession as Design Engineer with my entusiasm for LEGO.

    Glad to hear you like the model and instruction as well. I will for sure re-design the head upon received feedback.
        I'm a little bit amazed about your assembly of the model. It looks exactly as mine - but with a more accurate head. For info I'm aiming for a 3 bricks wide head with kept length.

    I'm going back and forth regarding creating a diorama. To be honest, it's kind of a weak spot for me, but why not challenge my self? However, as the designer I would be extremely thankful for other people creating a diorama showing the AT-AT. A stand is not necessary as the model can be positioned without external features, see photos on Bricksafe gallery.  
         Actually I already have some other combat walkers in the same scale as the AT-AT. Check out my other two MOC's, AT-DP and AT-ST. I will see what comes to my mind, but I try to keep the scale and continuously add new imperial machines. 
         The current knee joint design which allow both a fixed and moving knee makes possibilities for different poses. The hip, foot and ankle does have some free degrees of moving. The model is also well balanced and can stand on even three legs. I would say there are some great poses that can be proven without breaking the model.

    You're really into the build. I can ensure the AT-AT is 100% built and works great. No bricks are falling of during normal handling and the real build is stiff, strong, solid and well balanced (can stand on three legs for instance). 
        I also had a collision detection in the model regarding the 4x4 round plates and octagonal frames. I thought that was a software flaw as the pieces goes good together. But after some verification I found that the 4x4 round plate need to be placed additional 1 fine mesh unit (approximately 0.10 mm) above the octagonal frame. The rendered model should have shown this. I will update the model accordingly for the future. 
         The intersection between the 2x2 plates with corner cuts and 2x2 round tiles on the top of ankle barrel is all good. The height is adjusted by the mechanical arm and claw clip.
         I will do my best to add some photos. But believe me, it is standing perfectly next to me!

    I'm glad you like the model!
         Unfortunately I have no photos on the real build. But, the real build is positioned the same as the rendered model. This means that all technical solutions are working, and the build is stiff and strong enough for moving (and even some play). 
         The knee joint does use 3 ea 2x3 plates with rounded corners and 1 ea half technic pin. But it does snap, the pin moves freely in the first two plates, but snaps in the third one cause of the pin shoulder. You're right there is not enough pin material to fill the plate holes and making a lot of friction. Of course it is not as tight as a ball joint, but has other advantages such as there is only one moving plane. At the end, it works well and I would say the standing posture is quite natural, and the knee looks like a knee and works mechanically as a knee (bending approximately ±20°). 
         I'm aware the binoculars are not a proper connection. But, it is positioned inside the hip rim and are quite safe. They are attached good enough on my real build and does not fell of during normal handling. The stabilizing ankle links are not the proudest part of the build. I can see they are not as sleek as they suppose to be. Actually, I didn't found anything better. 
         The head... I have spent many hours designing, building and rebuilding the head. I would say it is scale when it comes to length and height. But width, and angles for the cheek and the top was not achieved as desired. Some day, I will dig deeper and enhance the head. 
         Thanks for taking your time and leaving a honest and thorough comment.
