Installing the Mechanics!!

Before I install a control post I like to install the eyes and mouth first. When these are finished I attach the front and rear of the head. By installing the mouth and eyes with just a half head (front half) this allows me more working space. When the two halves are together, installing eyebrows is no problem as I will have plenty of room through the trap door.

The Eyes rest on a platform. A piece of brass rod is bent and then travels through the center of the eyes and then secured in the platform.


The eyes add a look of life to the character. When the eyebrows and paint are finished, he will look very realistic.

Still debating the stick out tongue!!
