Today I spent a few hours working on my little reindeer. I also learned that female reindeers can have antlers, so I will start calling the little reindeer a her instead of a him. Right now her height from tip of toes to top of horn is about 2.25" total.
And for what you can't see from outward appearences...
The chest torso has the holes set for the neck and front leg joints. This is where the strings will go through. I hope there is enough space where the string can go without interfering with the ball joint of the mid section.
I am hoping I can add an elbow joint to the front limbs. There will be no paw joints. Still more work to do, but she is coming along nicely.
