Saw this at Eerie Acres YouTube. Wanted to build it. Fairly simple other than trying to drill through the old shovel! Mush have been use hardened as it was hard to drill bolt holes for the mechanism and hinge.

have some cleanup to do and need to figure out how to bend the other arm onto the handle. Probably will get the heat gun out.

Get the heat gun. The other trick is to cut the hinges between the joints, drill small holes and then run small bits of picture hanging wire between it to allow a little more movement in the joint. Can do the same with the hands as well to give them a more realist hold on it. Here’s how I did them in my raising phantom.





Pay particular attention to the thumb - all plastic skeletons have the thumb at an angle that makes it hard to mimic our natural thumb movement.
