Ugh, re-wiring this thing was a pain. I accidentally drilled through the first wire. And I needed an additional wire for lights. Since I didn't want thin crappy wire, it took quite a bit of effort and a few additional drill holes to avoid the pivots.
I cut up a foam pool noodle to thicken the body and limbs. Then began coating. I'll do the head last.
Btw - the wood pole is just propping him up. Current height, not fully extended is approx 4'6". If the figure were standing it would be about 8-9'.
