“In this issue, you will continue to work on the lower part of the right arm, which will be completed next issue.”




Materials: The Right Forearm (Inner) is metal, the Wrist Joint Cover is rubber, and the rest of these parts are plastic.

The Right Forearm (2)

Stage 1 – Right Forearm (Part 2) and Wrist Joint
Step 1

Press the post and pin Forearm Protector into the matching holes at this location on the Right Forearm (Inner), as shown:

Secure the Forearm Protector in place from below with one (1) BP screw:

Step 2

Fit the rounded tab of the Wrist Joint (8C) between the tabs of the Wrist Joint (8D) as shown. Then, secure these parts together with one (1) JP screw:

The JP screw should be inserted into the side of Wrist Joint (8D) with the recessed hole:

Step 3

Slide the Wrist Joint Cover over this Wrist Joint assembly.

These two parts both have a ‘thicker’ end (marked with arrows below). Match these to each other, as shown:

Step 4

Insert this Wrist Joint assembly into the slots at the narrow end of the Right Forearm (Inner).

The ‘thicker’ end of this Wrist Joint assembly (that I mentioned above) should be inserted into the Right Forearm (Inner), as shown:

Be sure the tabs of the Wrist Joint Cover are fitted down into these slots:

Stage 2 – Joining the Forearm Assemblies
Step 1

Retrieve your Right Forearm/Elbow Joint assembly from the previous issue. Join the Right Forearm (Inner) to the Right Forearm, capturing the Wrist Joint in place, as shown.

You may want to take a quick moment here and make sure the screws of your Elbow Joint are tight enough to just barely allow movement. These pivots will have to support the weight of the forearm and hand in any position you choose and cannot be easily accessed later on:

Then, we can fit the two parts together as per the instructions:

Step 2

Secure the forearm halves together using four (4) EM screws.

Once this stage is completed, you should make sure your Right Elbow Joint still flexes correctly. This is also your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on all screws going into metal:


The Right Hand we built back in Issue 3 could technically be popped onto this Wrist Joint now, but the assembly instructions will have us wait until Issue 14 to attach it. I believe this is to keep the hand safe until the entire left arm is completely finished.
