Just asking a favor: If any of you have pictures of armatures you have made, particularly pictures taken before any dressing has been added, can you post them below? I'm just trying to get as much reference as I can before designing my own. I'm mainly concerned with B&S armatures, but would be happy to see any innovative wire armatures too.
Thanks in advance,
Best thing is to google images or the new issue of Stop Motion Magazine is having an Armature issue coming up
Starting to plan my third armature now. Let me know if you have any questions.
Hi James. Have a look at the Machine Mart catalogue. A micro milling machine is £478.80 and a small metal lathe is £695. I reckon you can get a lot of excellent ball joints from animation toolkit for that sort of money! What I do is buy the joints and concentrate on making the brass chest and hip plates.
Have been thinking of doing some workshops, but so far Exeter Phoenix have not been interested. Will keep pressing them.
