Just to review what is being built I’ve posted these three photos of parts just before gluing things together. The first is a view of the frog’s head with the eyes in place. The second is a view of the underside of the same piece. You can see the brass links which control the eyes and the mouth movement. The eyes will move by twisting one rod which goes directly into one eyeball and linking across to the other.
The last photo is the upper head piece with the eyelids installed. The long links need to be installed now before gluing parts together. You can see some sanding marks where I removed some material during test fitting. It’s important to check that everything works well now.
Follow up later!
