Step 8

Assembling the body.

Study the pictures closely and fit all pieces before gluing. In this step you assemble the two sides, the top plate, the two center body plates and the leg plate to form the character body. Test fit everything and make notches for the side stiffeners in the various plates. You will also want to make a slot in the center of the top plate for the top of the vertical motor support bracket that's attached to the center body plate.

I first lay the top plate on the table and then glue and pin the two sides to the top plate. I pin a temporary spacer, at the knees, as I glue each plate in position. Next I glue in place the two center plates. I use Gorrilla Glue except for the ply to ply bonding, there I use slow cure epoxy. Do not glue the top of the vertical motor support bracket to the top plate. Just insert it in the slot you made earlier. Finally, glue in the leg plate. Check that everything is aligned and let dry.
