“In this issue, the assembly of the left hand begins with the first two fingers. It is important to correctly identify the parts before starting the assembly.”

This issue will be similar to Issue 3, but only contains two fingers of the Left Hand.



Materials: All of these parts are plastic.

The Left Hand (1)

Here are the finger parts laid out in order. The top row is the thumb (marked ‘1L’) and the bottom row is the index finger (marked ‘2L’):

Stage 1 – Thumb Assembly
Steps 1-2

Identify the two parts marked ‘1L’ that indicate the left Thumb. Fit the serrated tab of the fingertip (25B) into the matching slot of the thumb (25A) as shown. Secure these parts together with one (1) CP screw.

The top surface of all of these fingers is flat, so this should help orientate the parts correctly. One side of each finger part has a recessed hole, that is the side where the screw goes into:

Stage 2 – Assembly of Index Finger
Step 1

Identify the three parts marked ‘2L’ for the left Index Finger. Fit the serrated tabs of each part into the matching slot of the next larger part, as shown. Secure the knuckle base to the middle section with one (1) FP screw:

Steps 2-3

Secure the fingertip to the middle section with one (1) CP screw.

Make sure you can fully ‘curl’ and extend each finger. If the screws are too tight, the joints will not be able to move:


Back in Issue 3, we built the entire Right Hand all at once. However, this time, it is going to consume four issues just to build this Left Hand. It seems to me like Fanhome needed to ‘stretch’ the subscription out. Keep these little finger parts stored safely for now.
