I don't have a decent source handy right now, its very modified and
messy. A mix of Pov 2.1, 3 and 3.1. I uploaded a clean source to
Compuserve around 97/98 so should have that archived around here
somewhere. I'll let you know if I find it.

These are some pics, the first may be a dead link now.

Each leg has 4 segments, and each knee is a section of a torus divided
with a short cylinder inserted. Each knee was in a single plane and
could cover around 160 deg. An infinite number of solutions for each
shoulder / foot location :( I used "90 deg phase" between legs on one
side and 180 deg difference between sides.
