I decided to open up Rachel's right hand today, this being the worse of the 2 with all finger wires apparently snapped. Initially I made a small cut in the wrist as was going to undo the wrist bolt and remove the whole palm plate but the nut was welded on tight and I would have had to cut the weld off to make progress. Instead I then made a cut (using sharp pointed scissors) just over an inch long in the middle of the palm around the end of the palm plate. I could see that only the thumb had snapped completely off as all the other fingers had their springs firmly bonded into the palm plate. With a bit of fiddling i was able to push the finger wires back into the springs thus giving the fingers some tension again. As Rachel is only ever going to do some light modelling work now I then I decided to leave it at that as the fingers looked reasonable. Doing a more permanent fix would really need the palm plate taking out and I just didn't think it warranted that extra work as I could now pose her fingers although she won't be holding any baseball bats just yet! Considering how this hand looked upon arrival with a wire sticking through the back of the hand and nearly all finger tips with pokes and green residue where moisture had got in, things looked a lot better. See pics, the 1st is the hand before she got to me and the next shows where I cut to access the end of the palm plate where the wires are supposed to be attached. The last couple are where I have partially sealed the cut with tiny amounts of super glue, I will later smooth it over with heat.

That is some mighty impressive work there! She is almost unrecognisable from when you started.

Guessing she doesn't need too much more doing before her recovery is complete?

Hi Scrublord and thanks, yes I've been pleased so far, I've been watching Mishka's latest video on tpe repairs and his technique for filling holes looks great so Rachel will certainly benefit from that, it's just finding time! I did try standing her overnight recently and she was fine so her skeleton is certainly up to the job of posing as a model, so watch this space!
