Retrofire - Rockets & Robots is back in force, www.retrofire.com! Starting in the next several weeks with "Project K-9". An adaptation of Doctor Who's robot dog. The emphasis will not be on plans for the dog itself, rather the platform and options for making K-9 come alive.

I'm soliciting suggestions for featuers and options for the build. There will be a K-9 area on our forums within the next few weeks for adding your input.

Keep in touch... we will begin the roll out of the K-9 robot pooch soon!

cya soon!
