Cool.  I think there's a Farco near me (clearwater).  I'm going to need some more sooneer or later.

Have you done the outer feet yet?  I'm about to start them and was wondering if there's a template or something for the parts of the foot that have that 1.5"r  curve to them.

Have not done the outer feet yet. I was going to until I realized the styrene plans are for a setup I'm most likely not going to use so i have to think of what and how I'm going to change them before I start and do it the right way the first time ,... hopefully.

Also got a bit more finished and wanted to share. Trying to figure out what step to take next now.

Did a little more work on the build.

I decided to try something out to see if it would work and scratch built a shoulder button using a few nylon spacers, a screw cap and a bolt. the though was to allow me to use the shoulder buttons to bolt on the horseshoe to the leg. (pic below) not sure how I feel about the way it turned out it's not 100% I know but wondering if it will look good enough once they are painted.
