Hmmm....very interesting armature foot design.  Looks like you designed the heel of the shoes right into the armature.  I also think that is a very neat design for the ankle joint.  Very elaborate bit of machining.  Nice Job!

Almost stilletto feet! The brass looks too good to cover up.

Thanks Guys

The material are 303 ss in the toes and bronze aluminum in the heel

Sweeeeet!!!

That is a really neat look at your armature foot construction. It looks fantastic, thanks for sharing. True art work:) Where did you learn to make these? And where did you find bronze aluminum? I agree with Nick that it looks too good to cover up:) 

Thanks fellow armature likers!

This is my first full armature and I learn by doing   :)

I get most of my metals at http://www.onlinemetals.com/

 

If some of you remember Patrick Zung's Barbie armature you will see some of the same designs in the feet and hips

Awesome thanks very much,

Cheers,

Tim

further along

Sweet! It must have taken a while to shape that hip block.

What are the holes for in the hip block that are just above the hip joints?  Is that more for assembling the full block from other pieces? You seem to be using components that are flat on some sides (presumably so you can hold them in the fixture) and have joints/support mounts on other sides, then assembling those pieces.

Also, I was wondering why you're using B&S joints in the knees since you have swivel joints in the thigh.  Hinge joints seem thinner, and the thigh swivel gives the extra rotation that hinge knees are lacking.

Hey Dave it was about 1.5 hrs shaping that block

Those are not swivel joints just clamps for the rods

I will do more hinge joints in the future for elbows and knees. Those B&S joints are pretty linear because the slot is just a little bigger than the rod and they don't go forward only bend back.

The round holes are to hold the parts together and the parts are only rounded after the machining is done.

This picture will explain some.
