Explain how that works - considering that we are not descended from monkeys.

That's something I've wanted to do for a long time but the whole project seems kind of daunting. I have friends who have made the megasquirt controllers and custom piping. It just seems like a lot of work.

Well thats the first step for a lot of people. I think SW is great for letting your imagination become reality especially if you can't draw well. Did you put a motor on the whole assembly and animate it?
