“In this issue you will construct a neck joint and assemble the lower jaw joint.”

We will not be using the provided Neck piece until Issue 13, so put it safely aside for now.



Materials: While the Brass Bushes are metal, the rest of these parts are plastic.

Assembling Neck and Jaw Joints

Neck Joint
Steps 1-3

The inside of the Neck Joint parts have three raised screw posts that align the pieces:

Step 4

Press the Neck Joint parts together as shown, then…

Step 5

…secure them together with three (3) PB 2×6 mm screws:

Jaw Joint
Step 6

Retrieve the Lower Jaw assembly from Issue 6 and the Head Motor Joint assembly from Issue 7. Note the locating pins on the Head Motor Joint assembly (circled below):

Step 7

The Lower Jaw assembly has matching holes for the Head Motor Joint. Fit this motor joint in between the Lower Jaw joints, aligning the holes as shown:

Steps 8-9

Retrieve the base of the skull we built in Issue 5. These screw hole lugs (one is circled below) are where the jaw will soon attach:

Step 10

On either side of the Head Motor Joint assembly are grooves (one is circled below) where the lugs on the base of the skull slide into:

Slide these grooves over the lugs on the base of the skull, as shown:

Step 11

Grab the two Brass Bushes and note the jaw joint hole (circled below), then…

…insert one of the Brass Bushes (bushings) into each of the Lower Jaw joints:

Steps 12-14

Secure the jaw into place using two (2) PM 2x10mm screws through each of the bushings and into the base of the skull.

Be careful not to over-tighten these screws as the jaw needs to be able to rotate freely:


With this issue complete, we have started on the neck. But, more importantly, we have attached a few of the loose parts together to start building up the skull. Keep all of these parts safe as we will need them again in Issue 13.
