    The wife has been asking me to build one of these for some time now and I could not figure out the best way to do it until now! Looks like I have my summer project! Thanks for the great tutorial.

    The gang's all here! Cut out the characters and first coat of primer. Next is a light sanding and another coat.

    This is such a great project. Will you be publishing a how-to on this project with dimensions & drawings, etc.?

    Even though the DIGWDF Store has been closed for two years, it's still awesome!
    User guides, documentation and other files are still free and available for downloading.

    I don’t think he can publish the plans because they’re something that he bought. I’m sure that he’ll tell you where he got the plans from though.

    The plans are from Winfield Collections. I'm using them as a 'guide' and making some alterations as I go. For example, I'm planing on having 3 characters move up and down - not in the original plans.

    Started painting the characters this week. I'll be posting pictures of them soon.

    Thanks for the kind words!!!
