Here is the company my 6 year old put together, including the harrier by Dukayn, the jerboa by mraichelson, and a flying Liger thats a hybrid of deigns featured in Brick Journal by Sage Coulson and Kyle Peckham.

Thanks, yeah it was the one he needed the most help with, and we were missing some pieces on color. Do you have one of these MK 2s in the brick? I ask because we had to mod some of it for stability. Especially in the Travis brick that makes up the bicep, we took out the technic half pin that held the claw because the Travis brick didn't have any friction to keep the arm from swinging freely. Wasn't sure if we were just doing it wrong or what. Anyway, thanks for the awesome instructions!

No, and that's a good point. I think you've got it right with how you've got the claw coming straight out of the Travis brick. I probably just forgot about that when I made the instructions. I usually use a half-pin in a 1x1 brick for forearms and it holds in place fine, but I forget the Travis brick is a bit looser inside.

Was there any other stability issues? The arms are the only part that I haven't bricked up before and it's a decently solid piece from my experience.

Right in the waste there is a bit that we fiddled with (right above the motor brick). Whatever we did switched a one stud connection to a two stud connection and fixed the issue. One of the ankles is kinda fiddly too, but since it's only one I think we might just need a tighter piece. We need to brick him out a proper weapon too but I'm coming up on a bunch of papers due so it'll have to wait. My son really likes the looks of it though!
