- A gear like chest emblem.
- Some Lego-compatibility (meaning Lego studs will fit).
- A kit for making steam boats, as used in my own workshops for children.
I used a simple copper wire bendable armature. This is a very simple way to make a figure with some degree of posability. It is not suitable for playing, but it is for displaying and changing the pose once in a while.
Step 1: Materials
Copper wire (I used 7 strands from a 16 mm2 mains installation cable, they are about 1 mm diameter each)
Brass bushings (I used bushings with a 5 mm outside diameter, 4 mm diameter inside)
Some Lego parts
The steam boat materials as described in:
Step 2: The bendable armature
The seven strands allow to make five fingers and leave two strands to be bent to make the palm of each hand.
