Building the Knee Joint

Step 1

Apply a small amount of super glue to each of these four studs of one of the Joint Centre Parts:

Steps 2-3

Fit this Joint Centre Part to this location on the Knee Joint, aligning the studs to the matching holes as shown. It should sit flush and not rotate:

Step 4-5

Repeat the previous step to attach the second Joint Centre Part to the opposite side of the Knee Joint. It should sit flush and not rotate:

Step 6-7

Secure the ring end of the Tendon for Right Leg to this location on the Knee Joint with one (1) PM 3×12 mm screw.

Do not over-tighten this screw, the tendon should be able to rotate freely:


That was a super quick issue! Keep this joint assembly nearby as we will need it in the next issue. All of the parts in this issue are plastic.

Running Total of screws used so far: 191
