Just add an eyeball and you're good to go!

All kidding aside, this is a beautiful looking armature.

Please tell me this will be a robot, with all those shapely armature parts in plain sight!  They not only look good, they are elegant engineering solutions.

Far too good to cover up!

Please can we have some details of the tools you're using to make this armature?

Kit

I use Emachinsshop's free cadd program which is Great for design and I have a Mill with  digital readouts

Chest block,still need to do some shaping om the sides

shoulder parts .187 joints

This thing is Beautiful!!! Whats the final puppet gonna look like? Any designs? Will deco be keeping an eye on this one! 

*Defo 

Will post pictures of the design in the future.Thanks

Arms

How tall is it? ... Guessing about 300mm (12 inches)? one-sixth scale ?
An impressive bunch of machining for a first armature ... Also guessing you are a machinist by trade. Keep the pictures coming. Awesome!
... Jbd

Yes it is 11.5 "

I was a sculptor for the theme park industries and I learned machining by doing it at home in my shop. I like doing mechanical design it is my new thing I love!
