No, I didn't talk about that. The best part of working on this project was figuring things out for myself and in most cases, trial and error. Remember, I'm just an average guy with no previous experience with building anything remotely similar to my T800. I don't even consider myself a novice at prop-building. I spent countless hours researching before I even started this project. I knew nothing about plastics, glues, Dremels, or even wiring. I learned as I went. Good luck in your future endeavours.
Hello again, and Happy New Year. I really hate bothering you, but I love your Terminator very much. That's why I know you can help me out. I have my chest and back plates finished, and glued together, but I only need one measurement to complete this section before mounting it. I don't know what the spacing is between the top of the chest plate, IE, collar bone and the back plate? I made a mock up version out of EVA foam and it looks about right at 4.5", but with my PVC pieces, it is 6". If you could help me with that measurement, I shouldn't have to bother you again. Sorry..

Hey there! I'm George and I live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I'm currently working on a scratch-built T-800 endoskeleton. I started this project in November of 2013. My goal is to build the entire body with PVC pipe. I've attached a couple of photos to show some of my progress. I was test-fittng the parts when these photos were taken and they're not all cemented yet. Happy to be here! View attachment 301630 View attachment 301631
Good evening,
I haven't emailed in some time because I've been waiting for warmer weather to arrive here in Iowa. I'm now back at work working on my T-800, and was wondering if you wouldn't mind if I asked a simple question? I'm starting on the hydraulic cylinders in the chest cavity, and was hoping you could tell me what size you made yours? The plans I have call for them to be only 2.5" long which if you ask me is way too small. Any help or pics you might have would go a long way.
Thanks again for your help.
