Good morning all. We had some developments over the weekend. On Friday night I noticed Avery's left knee was moving a bit more freely than it was supposed too and could feel a piece of metal poking from under the silicone on the back of her leg. So after work on Saturday I once again loaded her up, (this time in the front seat!) to take her to the good doctor's house. Upon arrival we opened up Avery's leg and this is what we found.


This poor doll! But lucky she is in good hands. We removed the broken thigh and ended up making a replacement thigh with some new PVC, spray foam, and added some clamps to hopefully reinforce the ends.


This is what they looked like before being shaped down.


And this is the end product. Very similar to the original! I had to leave before we were able to install the part, but everything was fitting well. I ordered a tube of sil-poxy this yesterday and it should arrive midway through the week, so this weekend she should be back in working form. I'll keep updating here when I find out more!

Another Saturday in the books and a lot more progress has been made! The new thigh has been installed and everything seems to be in working order. After making sure things were good the ends of the cut were sealed up with Sil-Poxy and pins and some more spray foam was added around the thigh to give it the proper thickness. We've left it to cure overnight and if all goes well Avery should be ready to come home tomorrow. :D

She is doing much better and is part of the FrozenArctic Circle! I'd like to formally introduce Avery!






Samara78 did a wonderful job tuning her up this past weekend, and taught me a lot about repairs too, so many thanks to her for that!

Holy smokes, do I remember that doll? How could I forget? Her headless corpse fell right on top of me when I opened the crate! CND did a superior job repairing the unrepairable, and you've taken her to the next level. Great job! Great photos!

She can be hanged, I reinforced the cross joint and had her up on the wall for several months

I love that Saran Wrap technique with the pins, that's a great idea!!  I'm repairing a hip on a Z-one 170cm now I'm going to employ that tactic when I repair the exterior.
