Phoenix Hands Build Updated 18 March, 2016


Part 2 of the Phoenix monster build, focusing on the hands. See the Phoenix Body build page for details on assembling core model. Two styles are presented: bare model with numbering and built model with numbering. Recommend small needle nose pliers to assist with holding the hands. It can help to rotate the Phoenix instead of turning/pivoting your hand to fit these. Pretty straightforward: clip a hand, line it up, tiny spot of plastic glue, fit.

This builds generated more input than all the others combined. Figured folks would sort out where #20 goes but after a few funny (and angry!) emails: #20 (three hands) fits into the cloaca - thanks Yaroslav for the anatomy education!

Close up of the hands on sprue. Note reference numbers, these are used below. I've received some feedback on the hands, please take these into account when building your Phoenix!
