Well, guess what… I made it.
Here it is – Humanly Posable Armature, Attempt #4.
And it is an “A”. It holds the pose just like I want it.
Yes, there are ways to make it “A+” and “A++” and I already have a few ideas, but for now it will make a very good armature for Monsieur Poirot.

Morezmore – Monsieur Poirot – Humanly Posable Doll – Part 1

Good morning, friends!
I am starting a new doll – “Humanly Posable” Doll Monsieur Poirot. He will have a “stop-motion animation style” posable armature, made of steel.

“Humanly Posable” Dolls
If this is a success, Monsieur Poirot will become the first of Morezmore “Humanly Posable” Dolls. I have been mulling over this cross-industry project for about a year, looking for miniature steel parts all over the internet, figuring out shapes and sizes from photos, converting metrics millimeters to US inches and back, talking to vendors, buying the parts, waiting for international delivery, trying to fit them together. This the reason it took so long. Finally, I have something worth assembling and turning into a doll. Wish me and Monsieur Poirot luck.
