Gluing the Arms on Buford

I don’t have a lot to report on Buford’s progress other than that I’ve fitted both arms, now with gloves, and have epoxied the arms in place.  Recall that I had already done a lot of fitting of the arms by using the method of marking the mating surfaces with pencil lead and carving away the high points.  I also made sure that all of the wrinkles that were to go into the sleeves were there prior to gluing the arms in place so that I wouldn’t be trying to carve into tight spots.

This week I’ll get to sawing out the ears and shaping them around the arms.  My plan is to have the one ear go over Buford’s right arm and fall inside the holster so that the six-shooter doesn’t get hidden in any way.  Should look nice.
