Lego Man (Repair legs)

31 01 2011

From: Lego Man (Model)

The support legs to the hips, the effort did not tolerate for long time. The joints are very weak and broke.

These are two rolls of cardboard that will replace the original carriers, providing the strongest legs.

These are the two legs repaired.

In the following video, I show how new supports are developed and how they were placed in each leg and finish.

Another is .. Like New!

This model is really cool!
Thx for the pics of your mod!
What sort of paper do you use for your model, will 160g/m² or canson be ok?

In g/m², not really, but the paper I use is called “translated” paper rainbow (Papel arcoiris in spanish). But it’s like cardboard (cartulina in spanish). Sorry for not having more information.

See the next picture:

Thx for your reply.
So i will buy some cardboard.
160 g/m² is a bit light, cardboard is more like 250g/m² or heavier.
Then i will try this pretty model. 🙂

Hello, I enjoy reading through your article. I wanted to write a little comment to support

Good day Sir,
I’m a big fan of your (particularly this Lego Man) art. If you would be so kind, this newbie have some few questions. I was thinking of making a Lego Titan (from Attack on Titan) 2-3ft tall with the helmet as his face. Can the same materials that you used here be applicable or do I need thicker paper? And also, can you help redesign the helmet in a way that I can draw the face of the giant meat Titan? I will really appreciate it and thank you for sharing your work.

Can you please make a minifig with a tophat and a staff like Mr Gold has? I would really like to make a Mr. Gold paper minifigure.
