Character designs

Been doing a bit of work on updating some of the character designs.

Break down of  Robot & Dreamer ready for building armatures.

Update over due!

Foley sound recording started well but I got a little side tracked after reading Tom Brierton's book 'Stop-Motion Armature Machining' which was bought for my birthday, so I decided to invest in some new machinery.

So the heavy box hernia later I managed to get the lathe out of the box and on to my bench

The lathe needs a fair bit of setting up but I'm up for the job!

 Also purchased steel from Ebay ready for armature building.

I have had a tub of small discarded telescopic ball/arm ends for some time these should come in handy!
I believe these ball ends are stainless but soft enough to drill...these I hope to silver solder making a stronger armature than any previous armatures I have built.
