STAGE 79: PARTS LEFT SECOND (MIDDLE) FINGER AND ARM

DSC_6084.thumb.jpg.7f75c4e1ab8ea854ae3ad33cd9686da7.jpg

Another finger to build and fit to the hand! One tip...I find it's easier to slide the neoprene tube into the joint from behind, and THEN push the main metal pin through it to expand the neoprene whilst in situ. CA is used to glue a plastic cap to the opposite side.

The elbow joint is now completed and fitted to the left upper arm, completing that assembly.

STAGE 80: COMPONENTS FOR THE FOREARM AND LEFT HAND

DSC_6088.thumb.jpg.790b781afabcaa092ef7152116b2eb2e.jpg

Work on the left forearm begins by CA'ing the tendon springs into position on the forearm plate...

DSC_6089.thumb.jpg.de7219f977354d4e2748a848240385ca.jpg

...which is then screwed to the forearm shaft and the joint added to the top.

Connectors are supplied to fit the previous finger onto the hand.

Pack 9

Here we are on the 75% mark on this build, and you really need space to store this when this pack is complete. The aim of this pack is to construct the complete left arm, hand, and and also a good chunk of the lower left leg. There is an amount of repetition here to the right arm, hand and leg, so as this build will primarily be for a magazine, I've done this pack as an abridged build. 

STAGE 81: COMPONENTS FOR THE FOREARM AND THIRD FINGER OF THE LEFT HAND

1.thumb.jpg.9d7e9e2c46b716da4da6ac52fc3d612c.jpg

The finger for this is assembled in the same way as the others, and still adding the neoprene tube to the joint BEFORE inserting the pin. It really is the only way to work this. Finger joints are all nice and stiff, with no floppiness. The forearm shafts are also assembled to the arm as they were on the right hand side.

STAGE 82: COMPONENTS FOR UPPER LEFT ARM, FOREARM AND LEFT HAND

3.thumb.jpg.44726dde0adc90475ae339a461d228dd.jpg

Fittings are supplied to connect the finger I previously built, to the left hand. We also have another forearm shaft and the cover. This allows me to fit this assembly to the upper arm that was built in the last pack.

STAGE 85: EXTEND THE LOWER LEFT ARM, AND CONNECT IT TO THE HAND

9.thumb.jpg.52c2a3d68f68d8146d62de010f14d904.jpg

To connect the hand to the forearm, pistons are needed for the forearm shafts. These will engage the ball joints on the back of the hand. These are now assembled and fitted as before, and the spring/tendon connectors are added to the hand. Those springs are then connected as per the opposite hand. Arm complete!

STAGE 86: ASSEMBLE THE SHOULDER, AFFIX THE LEFT ARM TO THE BODY

11.thumb.jpg.a91cafdcac19af79e69601421bc12d4f.jpg

A hip joint is included here, but that is reserved for the next stage. Fitting the arm to the body is very simple. The arm slots into position and a ratchet disc is glued into the shoulder joint connector. An Allen key is used to tighten everything up, and this is then used to slacken joints off later to pose the T-800. For now, I'll keep the pose fairly neutral.

STAGE 88: ASSEMBLING THE LEFT HIP JOINT

15.thumb.jpg.7f9719ccf8b83d4ef889ae72cc37accd.jpg

As with the right hip, the inner joint case is slipped into the hip, followed by the ball joint. On top of that sits the outer plastic joint case. The thigh is sat up to the T-800 so the ball joint engages with the hip. This is then screwed into position. The outer cap is then screwed into place with four screws. At this stage the hip will STILL be loose. This is normal.

STAGE 90: FITTING PARTS TO THE LEFT THIGH

19.thumb.jpg.20c6c1227481c4048b573c913ce6bbb5.jpg

As it stands the thigh has no fascia, so this part supplies that. Three screws are used to fit it, screwed from the inside leg so they aren't seen.

20.thumb.jpg.3bb82faad08a47550a1b204ceec724cc.jpg

The piston is now fitted into position.

He's certainly looking VERY impressive!

James,

 

Great pictues as usual.

 

I've heard Sarah Connor is heading towards your house to stop the Terminator build being fully completed. Get your house security system upgraded ASAP, but don't buy a Smart SkyNet brand!

It's a real nice build. I know it's only a bolt/screw together job (with some CA in places), but it sure gives me something to do in between planking tasks etc. 🤣

Well, we are now onto Pack 10.

At this stage, the model is extremely heavy and not so easy to manoeuvre for photographing! I'm also more wary of just lifting this thing by the chest cage and now grip by the pelvis too so I don't put any unnecessary strain on the model. Everything seen in this pack is just a reproduction of building the previous lower leg and foot, so these pics just show the key assemblies.

STAGE 91: ASSEMBLE A MUSCLE FOR THE LEFT THIGH

DSC_7213.thumb.jpg.0a48107f40b7cbd34991701083976b57.jpg

Muscle piston! All glued parts use CA gel. If there was a lot of chrome plate, I first rubbed each joint with some fine abrasive paper to provide a better key for the glue.

DSC_7216.thumb.jpg.4f572a89e7ea5c853a4625f6472a7d6d.jpg

 

 

 

 

STAGE 92: KNEE, MUSCLE, AND FOOT: MAKE PROGRESS ON THE LEFT LEG

DSC_7217.thumb.jpg.59e1f9d5aa12b0b741a35abd60ac43c6.jpg

These are the three assemblies built for this stage; knuckle joints for the foot connection, muscle piston, and a knee joint with a ratchet wheel glued into position.

DSC_7218.thumb.jpg.e100925807cbc8dd047ff6a6ac4bf54c.jpg

It really isn't easy flipping the T-800 over, but it needed doing! The thigh muscles are now screwed into position.

DSC_7219.thumb.jpg.59ce807391b40c1ab5d2c3ecb95f87ba.jpg

 

 

 

 

STAGE 93: BUILD OUT THE FOOT, AND CONSTRUCT ANOTHER MUSCLE

DSC_7220.thumb.jpg.29f2150043e409a6f377f77e5b21ec8b.jpg

A nice, simple one. Another muscle piston, and screwing the foot section to the previously build foot assembly.

DSC_7222.thumb.jpg.62aa39c4f43086409f7077f045a4f897.jpg

 

 

 

 

STAGE 94: AFFIX THE LEFT THIGH MUSCLE WITH NEWLY-CONSTRUCTED TENDONS

DSC_7223.thumb.jpg.306332640c304ba12fda428fa3aacd87.jpg

The other muscle piston is now fitted to the thigh, then connected to the other muscle and screwed through the thigh frame.

DSC_7225.thumb.jpg.ca910f99d488565e00f749008c7e5d91.jpg

DSC_7226.thumb.jpg.8de06357e48195d31ebd51c0f0b110d1.jpg

The ankle ball joint is now fitted to the foot underside.

DSC_7227.thumb.jpg.9cd9cb89ce9c249cfbda2c9ad081a3aa.jpg

 

 

 

 

STAGE 95: ASSEMBLE AND AFFIX A KNEE JOINT

DSC_7229.thumb.jpg.e8811687b6209327d1bc362f408c6adb.jpg

If only a knee replacement was so simple! The knee joint is fitted with the ratchet discs and muscle piston.

DSC_7230.thumb.jpg.fc5c59a71d1039aafe4712e2764fa8c5.jpg

This is then dropped into position and the knee end caps pushed into position and tightened with a hex screw. This can be adjusted to pose the T-800 when complete.

DSC_7231.thumb.jpg.faebb08ef18b6ede2c8bbab3be1375fb.jpg

...and a little more work on the foot with the piston connectors and ankle joint.

STAGE 96: ADD THE LEFT KNEE CAP AND ASSEMBLE A TOE

DSC_7233.thumb.jpg.b286cea8dd6d445f3a0e138e71ba8039.jpg

The two kneecap parts are glued together and then the part glued to the leg.

DSC_7236.thumb.jpg.6b0d41267f5e98f0835c6bc3b56ce19a.jpg

And the construction of the toes also begins.

DSC_7237.thumb.jpg.ba81bffaf626466b2f07d467132c117c.jpg

 

 

 

 

STAGE 97: BUILD PART OF THE LOWER LEG, AND A SECOND TOE

DSC_7238.thumb.jpg.dc8719311ed321220f8e5cf89783560b.jpg

The lower led is now started, and another toe built.

DSC_7239.thumb.jpg.7cf8d0bb51aa84fc9d277344b8714c0c.jpg

 

 

 

 

STAGE 98: CONSTRUCT THE THIRD TOE, AND EXPAND THE LOWER LEG ASSEMBLY

DSC_7240.thumb.jpg.1357cf03ea94de223f1a4398a951594b.jpg

More work on the lower leg with the attachment of muscle pistons, and another toe is born.

DSC_7241.thumb.jpg.4802361db768396a1b4c5ca059910fcc.jpg

 

 

 

 

STAGE 99: BUILD A FOURTH FOOT PART AND ASSEMBLE THE LOWER LEFT LEG

DSC_7242.thumb.jpg.17658baaf145aab5df5f4ae3ac55f472.jpg

The outer shin is now attached to the lower led....and another toe in the series is built.

DSC_7243.thumb.jpg.2348a0657a73720240d73955faa2d240.jpg

 

 

 

 

STAGE 100: ASSEMBLE THE LEFT FOOT AND ATTACH THE LOWER LEFT LEG

DSC_7244.thumb.jpg.d58603412139970f098d268b8764f814.jpg

After building the last toe, then can all be fitted to the foot. It's vital to check the toe orientation and position from the instructions or it'll just look weird. I know as I did it upside down the first time. First, the lower toe joints are secured to the lowest point on the front of the foot, then the upper rods fasten to the connection above this.

DSC_7253.thumb.jpg.6c06ca8847780c478639b5a195c839cb.jpg

DSC_7254.thumb.jpg.3abae9fee2881a657a205b86163900f1.jpg

 

The lower let is now fastened to the T-800 with a single screw. As there is a ratchet disc on this, it can also be posed at the end.

DSC_7247.thumb.jpg.55e18c6f8386cab6d70bae2aaf93ef2a.jpg

DSC_7249.thumb.jpg.f9428f92888926e3b18ffc5af8e3d2f5.jpg

 

Until Pack 11....that's it. 😃
