Do you have it so that you can swap out arms and legs?

Also, why so many twisted wires for the arms? Looks like you could have used some thicker gauge wires on the legs / torso. I'm still newish though, so I'm just curious.

Yes, I should be able to change every wire part if needed.

As for the thickness, I did with what I had but if it's not good enough I can always change it. So far so good but we'll see.

The flexible wire joint sections look a little short, especially at shoulders and hips, which might mean they will flex just in one spot and tend to break sooner. If you shorten the k&s a little, you avoid this problem.
