Armature feet and hand builds

To make the feet I first drew a template of the size and shape I wanted on a piece of paper

I marked where the tie downs would be and also where the gap to allow the foot to bend would be also

I then traced this onto some steel plate. I done this so that I could use magnets as well as tie downs if needed for extra support

I drilled holes where the tie downs would be before cutting it to make it easier

I then roughly cut out the foot plates

I filed them to get the right shape

I cut them to allow bend in the foot for walking

using two part epoxy resin I glued K&S tubing to the feet

I then added wire to the feet and more Tubing to attach them to my armature

Here are the final feet attached to armature. I added an m3 nut to the feet to allow them to be tied down to the set with some m3 threaded bar

I made the hands using milliput and twisted aluminum wire

milliput is a two part epoxy putty which you mix together in equal parts and can be sculpted but air drys solid

I twisted some wire  fingers and placed it into the milliput palm

I then added a twisted wire wrist

I allowed it to dry 

I then cut the fingers to size and added K&S to attach to armature

I added some milliput to my waist and chest sections also to add extra strenght

Here is my full complete armature.
The next stage will be to pad it out with foam which I will show later
