    Thanks for the offer! :thumb: The sled has benn on my todo list for quite some time now. I got some diagrams from DeviantArt. Did you make them, or are yours different?

    Will do! The telescoping neck is ready; I'm now figuring out some easier ways to make the limbs rotatable. Maybe the new Iron Man from Julius Perdana gives me some hints (I definitely gonna make this one!:twisted:).

    Hi, fans! This is the latest info on Crichton.

    Finally he's got hands and legs. Okay, hands and wheels. And this makes the model almost complete!

    I'm revising all components one last time and will begin test-building shortly.

    Stay tuned! :wave:

    Thanks for the update and new pics. :wave: Glad to hear he's almost complete. I too wish somebody would take a go at Twiki. I have some good pics but no design skills.

    Thanks again for another great build.

    You are welcome! :thumb:

    And yeah, if only someone would make Twiki...! :yep:

    Thought you might like to see this. It's an article on Crichton from TV Guide May, 1981. It explains how he works and has a nice pic of the special effects guys working on his insides. Oh yeah, there's the awesome shot of Erin Gray in her sailor-girl uniform! :twisted:

    The best thing is, it is almost finished! However, life is so busy at the moment that I fear that I can't begin test building this year :-( . But rest assured, it is coming!

    Great 70s flashback! Thanks for the link. I haven't seen it before. But Twiki should be modelled after the life-size costume. The action figure is very detailed, however its proportions and shapes are incorrect (mostly the head).

    Your work is, as usual, superb:thumb::cool:. Please let us see more!sign1

    Yes, I will! The model is ready and unfolded, but I still don't have the time for a test-build. And there are no instructions yet, so please be patient. I always finish what I begin. And thank you for your comments! :thumb:

    Maybe I'll get some unfolding classes with you!:mrgreen: I started working on a model and I think it's close to the end. Now it's the unfolding (which I have yet to learnwall1), and then test building parts...:cry:

    Practise is everything! :thumb: I'm sure you'll make it. But be aware: Unfolding can be a very daunting and exhausting task. And it's a click-orgy so-to-speak. Make sure that there is no-one around you who has to listen to your mouse constantly clicking for HOURS. My mom almost killed me when I was unfolding the Colonial Blaster..! :mrgreen:
