Right I have made KONG (although his arm snapped off and I don't know how I am going to get it back on). Now I want to make more monsters. I was thinking of building an arsinoitherium, which was meant to appear in the original 1933 film but was sadly dropped out. I also bought the Warner DVD and watched the amazing 2 hour making of documentary with Peter Jackson's recreation videos. The question is, how would I build this creature using the build up process - no plaster moulds involved (I haven't quite got to grips with moulds yet.) Any suggestions?

Well I have padded the puppet with cotton wool (this puppet will be serving as a test to compare with a better foam padded one). I can see what you mean - when I bend the leg the cotton wool makes the leg very thin.
