Putting on some weight

I received a figure's body made of lightweight fibre glass with the request to make it "more substantial." Fibre glass is strong and this torso was nicely contoured, but it was so lightweight that with the heavier head in place, it wanted to topple at the slightest touch. I solved the problem by adding weight to the base with two 3/4" plywood inserts.


  1. Hi Mr. D. Thais is very interesting, Does that figure have the swing down legs, that too may add more to his bottom, Would like to see what the figure looks like, The Duff family,

  2. No, this does not have the "hinged hips", as I call that feature.
