I wasnt sure how to title this post. I want it to get your attention.
Home casting is an imperfect art using imperfect methods to best duplicate injection molded parts that are near flawless. Unless one is willing to invest in equipment most casting is unavailable or the results will leave you wanting.
These photos are of test pieces. So they dont really look as good as it can. But originally these pieces would have been scrapped because of slight fitting issues. Installing a knee rivet overcame the deficiencies of home casting. Now that I know I can consistently achieve the results I want, this takes alot of the stress off of me during the casting process.
Imagine...Repto's knees wont flop. He'll be able to stand without using his tail. You will be able to pose your vintage centaurus without using a stand. You hardly notice it is even there.
If you are interested in restoring the regidity to any of your figures, please email me at the blogs address firstname.lastname@example.org I charge $10.00 US to rivet the 2 knees on a Micronauts style 3 3/4" action figure plus shipping. $25.00 for 3 or 4 figures.
I'll post some more pictures in the immediate future of knee rivets in more appealing colored parts so you can get the full effect.
