    Ive decided to go ahead and turn this into a build thread. For people like me who are not that great at building i think it might help. I have finished the head which was not that difficult.

    I started the torso next. which when you get to the chest becomes very complicated and hard. The picture instructions are not real clear on placement of parts and are generally not arranged in sequential order.( That statement was not necisarilly a complaint, just meant as point of where the difficulties come in) As i look forward to all the components that have to be added to the torso it is very daunting. But the model is looking so great sitting there waiting to be finished.

    The arms and leggs dont look to be that difficult. so hopefully this build will at least help someone with the torso.

    What section are you working on? I have not begun the chest and am only 1/2 way through the legs, but I may be able to assist?

    I am guessing you are working on the chest. I was saving that section for last. The legs are going together well, I have just been distracted by Julescrafter's WALL-e models as of late, lol. That appears to be a pretty clean build thus far. I'm sure you'll figure it out. I can assist with anything else except the chest at the present time (haven't built it yet). I am sure Claudio wouldn't mind answering some of your questions. The chest does look like a bear!

    whew! thank you!
    no i didnt start a thread but i might turn this into one. This is a very difficult model to build so i think there are a few people who might benifit from it.

    Sorry about that!

    You're right, this part is numbered twice wall1

    I went into instructions and it refers to part D6, so you can go on assuming it IS D6 and NOT D3.

    Thank you for pointing that.

    theres no attachment point for the shoulder pads, you just tack em on. i may have to move them a bit when the next shoulder joint is placed.
