Thank you all! R-F, don't make changes just yet, I printed out Crichton four times and I will build the arms again to check myself. I need to roll the paper shoulder pins and find some elbow and wrist pins. Here is my dirty confession; I am too eager to finish Crichton for the collection. I need to be more analytical for R-F and the model. I do have some notes to send to Marcell.

You are doing a great job at this scale.:thumb:

Hole-punches are great, aren't they?! So much cleaner. I use the same type as you, plus hole-punches that you use a hammer with. They both work well, albeit the hammer kind scares the $h!t outta the cats and the girlfriend...sign1

If you find some strong material which does the job, use it. I for myself punched some nails through the wrist and snipped off the other end protruding from the other side. Easier, cleaner and safer than making a tiny paper roll or inserting a wire. :cool:

So, I was doing some building, enjoying a Diamond Knot Irish Red, and watching Buck Rogers. In the episode "Shgoratchx!" I thought that Crichton's finish was very much like a sliver sharpie pen..... More to come (once I get another silver sharpie).

You did an AMAZING JOB on Crichton (especially at that scale).
It looks really good standing next to the rest of your action figure collection.
