What are the differences between our Armature Ranges?

The INDY Hinge Range: The INDY Hinge Range of Armatures have a combination of Standard & Hinged Link Plate Assemblies. The joints on the Lower Knees, Hips and Arms are HINGED to provide a more realistic skeletal movement. The armature is assembled using machined nickel plated solid steel limbs and stud ends with 6mm ball joints combined with anodised aluminium shoulder and hip blocks eliminating the need for thread locked link/ball assemblies.
The INDY 6 Range: The INDY 6 Range of Armatures uses Standard Link Plate Assemblies and is assembled using machined nickel plated solid steel limbs and stud ends with 6mm ball joints combined with anodised aluminium shoulder and hip blocks eliminating the need for thread locked link/ball assemblies.
The INDY 9 Range: The INDY 9 Range of Armatures have a combination of Standard & Hinged Link Plate Assemblies. The joints on the Lower Knees, Hips and Arms are HINGED to provide a more realistic skeletal movement. The backbone comprises a 9mm brass & steel joint and 4mm diameter upper and lower back components for extra strength. The rest of the armature is assembled using 3mm machined nickel plated solid steel limbs and stud ends with 6mm ball joints combined with brass shoulder and hip blocks eliminating the need for thread locked link/ball assemblies.
The BESPOKE Range: The Bespoke Range of Armatures uses a combination of INDY or Professional components depending on the armature being built.
