Now, a project I have been working on for a while has also had a breakthrough. Not by much, but I have finally solved the problem of the wonky and temperamental helmet of my character: use better glue! And for the love of God make sure you remember the obscene smell the 2-part Epoxy has to offer. My next problem was the style I have chosen for George the Knight because I rather fancy he looks a lot like Marvin the Martian from the Looney Tunes clan. Oh well. If there is any issue with copyright I shall give George a pair of Elton John glasses and a big bushy beard.
It has been revolutionary (albeit minor compared to the progress I ought to have made) to finally get the basis for the puppet. The wire frame is done, the steel feet are ready and highly magnetic. I also have a steel sheet that will be screwed onto a customised table to form the platform to animate on.
The cunning diagram below will show you what is to be done.
