Using counterweights instead of a spring to return a turning neck on a character.
I am trying to find how others have used counterweights to return turning necks on automata characters. In the past I have used a spring (Top Gun), but it's sort of cheating in my book. As I look at the work of Philip Lowndes I see from his website two different counterweight mechanisms, but their construction and operation are not clear. Can anyone provide some insight into this?
