    He's looking good so far! Beaker is such a great character to have around, and he's really not that hard to create. I often wonder why more people don't build replicas of him. Keep up the good work! :eek:

    Thanks Toodles :)
    Yea he is relativly simple tho hos simple appearence can be deceptive when it comes to constructing the mouth! Ive spent all afternoon tweeking, trimming, glueing and stitching to get the finish i wanted-

    Ok so the nose is built.. I used a regular styrophome egg as a base and shaved it down a bit. Then covered with fleece.
