This week we take a trip south of the boarder to Mexico. Alberto Rodriguez Cervantes has taken a creative approach to building a Terminator Endo-skeleton
This is my work in progress — the Terminator Endoskeleton. The first problem is I don’t have one model kit of the Terminator! You see, in Mexico, it is very, very hard to find model kits of this kind, mail service is very bad and is not secure. And price is too $$$$$$$$$$$$
So , I only can get the head and torso from a Horizon kit, thanks a friend here in Mexico. This is a big problem because I had to make all the other pieces from the kit. The same friend showed me a toy of the Terminator from a company called TOY ISLAND. The toy is perfect for my kit. The modification of parts is hard but is all right. Also the toy has an endo rifle with sound.
The legs are moved., and I cut the feet off for easy repositioning on the base.
The hand is the big problem. In the pictures of the hand from Terminator, it is not only rods. I used tubing, guitar strings, and epoxy putty for sculpting the joints. The idea comes from John Zizolfo’s Terminator and Stefan Linder from Swede Creations at www.swedecreations.com (the use of Guitar Strings).
The size from hand is 1/6 scale –I think!
