Much truer to the appearance of Ray's skeleton than mine.  Hope to see it in action - will it be in your Harryhausen100 tribute?  My wire armatured skeleton is pretty much at the end of it's working life, had to replace an arm before starting this latest tribute, and then an ankle failed the day before yesterday and it got a new foot.  The other ankle and the hips are probably getting close to failure too.) But considering the amount of walking/running in this piece, and the 3 previous productions it has featured in, I am pretty happy with how it's lasted.  I worried about the effect of limiting the bending to a small area of each joint, since a skeleton is really suited to a jointed armature, but I used latex instead of epoxy nearest the joints so there is more flexible section than it looks like.  You should get a lot of animation out of yours, if that is what you made it for.  

Thanks Nick!
