Finished my giant spider for this year - posted the build pics in the tutorial section, but these are the almost-final pics:

You can see how big it is compared to my car parked right near it. I just had to do a little bit of paint touch-up after these pics were taken. There was a kind of cool, unexpected thing I found after putting it all together - some of the legs don't quite touch the ground, so the whole thing moves when the wind picks up. Almost looks like this arachnid is starting to actually move!

This was supposed to be my only project for 2017, but like many others on here, I couldn't stop at just one thing. I also couldn't resist getting the Home Depot gargantuan spider, so now I have figure out how I am going to display two giant spiders in my small yard!

Looks good. They eyes really sell it. This is going to be one of my 2018 projects. (Yes, one of several. Props are like potato chips. You never stop with just one...lol)

He/she looks great. Nice job.

I plan to eventually build a couple more spiders for my yard. One about the size of yours, and one that has moving legs.
