I just wanted to share a project I am working on this weekend. This is going to be an animated leering skeleton holding a lantern. I am making this one as a Christmas present for my brother since he is just starting out decorating. Nothing fancy about him. He is a Walgreens skeleton I got on clearance after Halloween. He will be holding an LED lantern. His "Box" will be covered with rough cut fence pickets. I am hoping to trim it out to look like an old shipping crate when it is done.
The mechanism is the second part of this project. This is a new setup based on our Watchman prop. We already have a smaller prop turner, but I get a lot of questions about how much weight the reindeer motor can handle. This one is powered by a wiper motor and should be up to just about any task (within reason). This prop will be our tester and I expect we'll have the new mechanism on the site here shortly.
I'll update this thread as soon as I get a bit more done on him.
