Great video,your fingers did you the tops so you have movment in your finger tips,and did you glue the hand to the gloves as well

I have split the fingers,and run thin elastic across the joints at the tops.the elastic runs to the bolts on the main part hand guard.so nothing needs gluing to the gloves.i will run wire down the elastic to make it more droid looking.the gloves are thin silk so the fingers just push on.the little finger needed some putty run around to close the opening a bit,all the others are nice snug fitting.

so fingers joined at the knuckle and attached to the hand plate with thin elastic.

That's a great idea I think most people just glue them on.I might give this idea a go

I have the same issue with the LG arms. The length is greater than the length of my arms and impeads movement up near the arm sockets. I'll be triming mine as well.

What ever happened with your shoulder rings. I'd still like to see the results of that.

Re: friends,romans,countrymen lend me your arms.


After that short video ,i watched it back and saw that the arms still looked long.i got my 3po ref material out and noticed one big difference! the elbow bolts are to far forward ,One that is why my bicep did not fit into my for arm at the inner elbow and two made the arms look longer that they were.

I changed this by sanding off the lugs on the forarms ,re-drilling the holes further back and a little lower down ,made some new lugs with putty i did not change the bicep holes.This has really changed the look of the arm,it now looks far more in keeping with the other parts. I will add these shoulder bells in the next episode.



The video is a little dark,i will clear that up later,it sort of shows thats been written above.

Great mods. Got my gears turning on a few things.
BTW, I really like the posts in video format. Feels more interactive.
