What are the differences between our Armature Ranges?

The INDY 9 Range: The INDY 9 Range of Armatures has a combination of brass Standard & Hinged link plates with 9mm/6mm steel ball joints. The joints on the Lower Knees, Hips and Arms are hinged to provide a more realistic skeletal movement. The backbone comprises a 9mm joint for extra strength. The rest of the armature is assembled using 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 INDY Hinge Range: The INDY Hinge Range of Armatures has a combination of brass Standard & Hinged link plates with 6mm steel ball joints. The joints on the Lower Knees, Hips and Arms are brass 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 brass shoulder and hip blocks eliminating the need for thread locked link/ball assemblies.
The INDY 6 Range: The INDY 6 Range of Armatures have brass Standard link plates with 6mm steel ball joints and are assembled using 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 components depending on the armature being built.
