“Assemble the knee connector for the lower leg, and build another toe.”

Since building the toes is the same for each issue, I will be re-using the same pictures here.

Build Part of the Lower Leg, and a Second Toe

Steps 1-2

Fit this holed tab of the Foot Joint between the smaller brackets of the shorter Foot Part (marked 2), as shown:

This Foot Part is angled and hard to see which way around it should go in the magazine, but I noticed that the stamped numbers should always face away from you:

Step 3

Using the Allen Key (supplied with Issue 26) to secure these parts together using one of the Grub Screws. Tighten the Grub Screw until it is flush on both sides.

You will know you have these fitted correctly if the threads that you run this Grub Screw into are on the other side of where you insert it:

Step 4

Fit the smaller brackets of the remaining longer Foot Part (marked 2) over this upper holed tab of the Foot Joint, as shown. Make sure the recessed hole of the Foot Part (marked 2) is facing up:

Step 5

Press a Plastic Sleeve through the holes of both parts until it is flush.

This Plastic Sleeve should end up flush with the inner ledge of the hole, as shown:

Press a Foot Joint Pin (from the previous issue) into the center of the Plastic Sleeve until flush. This will firm up the joint:

Step 6

Slide the holed tab of the Toe in between these brackets of the Foot Joint, as shown:

Step 7

Press a Plastic Sleeve through the holes of both parts and follow it by another Foot Joint Pin (from the previous issue), like before:

Steps 8-10

Apply a small amount of super glue to this square tab on the Lower Leg Part:

Slide the groove of the Sleeve for Lower Leg Part down the rib of the Lower Leg Part until it is seated and secured, as shown:

Step 11

Fit the keyed post on the end of the Lower Leg Part assembly to this matching socket of the Base of Knee Joint, as shown:

Step 12

Secure the Lower Leg Part to the Base of Knee Joint with one (1) PM 3×8 mm screw:
