I decided to get the upper part of the head correctly joined together and add a bit of internal support. I will start work on the head soon and add the lower part of the head. I dont want to get into all the cutting and details on the head until the body is much more together. I also completed the hoses on the feet. I was going to buy some connectors but instead found some plastic shapes that work well. They do not look exatly the same as the original but I am pleased with the look they bring. I am not sure yet if I will keep the hoses silver or bronze them off.
