    Thought you guys might appreciate this a little more here than the main forum.

    I figured I've put this off long enough; just starting to sort through all the parts. Very crisp 1rst gen pull so I won't be dealing with the shrinkage that's occurred with other pulls over the years.

    As many know, a number of endos have shrunk as much as 20% due to multiple recasts. It's amazing when you compare a proper 1rst gen pulls to some of the more recent pieces. Big difference! I can really see it in the chest/rib-cage and skull. Anyway, more soon.

    20% Larger? That would make him taller than Arnold!

    I should've been more clear. Endos have been recast multiple times over the years leaving the majority that are out there under-size due to shrinkage. I was simply noting the estimated size difference between proper scale compared to other pieces that have suffered the aforementioned shrinkage.

    Hope I cleared that up.

    I'm 6'4" and I consider 6'2" short. All kidding aside I can't wait to see the progress on this.

    I do not know whether or not this kit is 6'2" when built - but if so, it would be not an endoskeleton anymore (more an exoskeleton), because Arnold ain't that tall (and never was)!

    If he is shorter then his days as a bodybuilder are more impressive. If he was 5'10 and 230lbs

    The other bodybuilders I know of say he is about 6 or 6'1........officially he is 6'2, but..........I don't care

    I was talking to Ferrigno last week - that guy IS tall......

    Is this kit going to be for sale soon?

    No, nothing like that. First gen Winston endos are terribly difficult to come by. A couple of us were just fortunate enough acquire a few. I don't mind keeping an eye out for anyone who is sincerely interested, but I'll tell you up front, they don't come cheap.
