BOILERPLATE BUILD - WINTER 2007-2008 This page documents the construction of a 1/6-scale Boilerplate figure. Only four of these articulated maquettes have ever been constructed! Click on any image to view a larger version.
Above: One of the most difficult parts of the build is balancing the figure so that it can stand on its own (although I wouldn't recommend it, as it topples easily)!
Left: Boilerplate's wind-up "guts" begin life as a novelty toy.
Below: Tests prove the hinge of the chestplate is not strong enough to withstand the stressful conditions Boilerplate was built for. The hinge is replaced with a combat-strength version.
