Re: Calf area


I thought there was a thread about it around here someplace but I'm not having much luck finding it. I'll get some current photos of my setup after work today.

Here are a few from earlier in the process, before everything was fully fastened down.
 
The hinge I used was a long, continuous hinge

I cut the hinge down into small pieces.

The movie suits use multiple sets of hinges but I used one longer strip on each side with no problems.

I used hot glue to place them and make sure the worked properly. Then I drilled holes for the screws.
Next I took the hinges off, pulled off the hotglue and applied J.B. Weld and screwed them down

I'll get more photos or make you a short video shortly and edit this post. Hopefully this will help you get a bit further along.

Re: Calf area


My calves have small hinges in one side spaced so the leg can swing open despite the curve, and the other side has the hinges but with a removable pin very much like what Gordon shows in his photos. Simple manuver to line up the hinges and drop the pin in to close the leg.

Before all the screws were trimmed and cleaned up.

Re: Calf area


Don Bies did that on the originals too. Glued the hinges, screwed them, cut off the pointy part, dremeled and filled the holes.
