ISSUE 98

 Return to the BUILD


“Complete the third toe and foot parts and add a second part to the lower leg.”

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

Construct the Third Toe, and Expand the Lower Leg Assembly

Steps 1-2

Fit this holed tab of the Foot Joint between the smaller brackets of the shorter Foot Part (marked 3), 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 3) over this upper holed tab of the Foot Joint, as shown. Make sure the recessed hole of the Foot Part (marked 3) 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 Issue 96) 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 Issue 96), like before:

Steps 8-9

Retrieve your Lower Leg Part assembly from the previous issue. Fit the narrow end of the Lower Leg Part (from this issue) into this socket of the Lower Leg Joint, as shown:

Step 10

Slide one (1) KM 2×16 mm screw through the Screw Housing, as shown:

Step 11

Secure the new Lower Leg Part to the Lower Leg Part assembly using this screw/housing, as shown.

This part will hang loosely when tightened, this is expected to allow for movement:

Thoughts


This month’s two-issue delivery is now complete! We have a good portion of the lower leg started and three toe assemblies ready to go!
