So with the Cait Sith doll, I guess that's two down, four to go! (download will be ready probably in a couple of days, after I finish the instructions)

Like I said before, it's a pretty simple shaped doll so there weren't too many problems. Just some glueing tabs that I liked to switch, and I made the paws (which I now realize are not in this picture yet) a little bit smaller.
The reason it has only one leg, is because the other one is basically the same (again, I assure you guys, that no cats were hurt in making this test build... ;o)

So, how to avoid a test build getting boring?
Simple: come up with some excuse to hang two staplers from one of the whiskers and make a video about it. ;o)
Of course I always use pretty thick paper (200 gsm) and I took extra care glueing the whiskers inside the snout using the small glueing tabs. But still I was pretty impressed! (the black stapler is almost completely out of metal and actually pretty heavy!*)
But luckily, even if you want to use thinner paper, it shouldn't be a problem either, save for someone sneaking into your house at night and hanging two staplers from your Cait Sith doll's whiskers...
(* I couldn't get it to breaking point though, adding more weight just made the whiskers slip out of the clamp... ;o)
