Picture of Life-Sized Minecraft Armour Stand

My grandson is a mine craft fan, and for his 7th birthday, he was "dreaming" of having a real minecraft armour stand to put his minecraft helmet on. (from a school “dress up”)

Step 1: Making the Full-size Minecraft Armour Stand.

Picture of Making the Full-size Minecraft Armour Stand.

The model was scaled to 1200 mm high from online photos and was constructed of plywood and pine, made into hollow tubes to minimise the weight but to maintain strength, with a base large enough to resist tipping.

The wooden construction is straightforward , except to say that the pine inserts in the end of each vertical tube need to be accurately made as a push-fit into the tubes.

The painting takes some time!

That is amazing! It came out just like in the game :D
