Pipe body

Post by Lt Rhea » Wed Sep 21, 2011 12:42 pm

I've got some PVC pipe that was in the basement of our house when we moved in. My husband was going to throw it out, but I didn't let him because I want to use it as the "frame" for my Muffit. Does anyone have suggestions or rough ideas how big I'd need to make it? I really don't know how large a chimp is...

I am getting close to be able to talk about Muffit, but till then looks like the height of a 4-5 year kid with super long arms.

You could probably get a ROUGH idea from the size of the model parts on the face/eyes, etc. They would be "X" inches and could "sort of" figure out how many eye's he is tall or something... just an idea.

Or have Red Eye check over any Daggit auction stuff he may have. They might have given his measurements in the write ups.

I've just take a look at the description in the PiH catalog, but no measurements were given. Sorry!

Yeah, I thought about trying to figure out how big Muffit is by what I know: the size of the eye...but I'm sure I'll screw it up somewhere along the way! :nah:
