Little Green Man Prototype Build, Part 6, Arm and Eye Gluing
The small arms were glued on just above the two front fin legs.
These were set back to the halfway point around the tube, at 180 degrees.
The eyes were a different story.
The larger eye goes to the left of center. The top of the oval is almost even with the top of the nose cone.
Set each eye on the nose cone and lightly trace around with a pencil.
For a flatter gluing surface, the gluing area is sanded flat with 220 grit on a sanding block. Don't sand all the way to the sides of the drawn oval, keep the flat sanded area inside the line by about 1/16".
This flattened oval makes a larger gluing area and allows the flat eyes to better sit into the nose cone curve.
The eyes are glued on.
Note the top of both eyes are turned out. The right eye is set slightly higher than the base of the left eye.
