Basically you need :
- a model head (usually the ones used by hairdresser apprentices will do, I ge these at garage sales for a few euros a piece. If they are female models take them too, clean the make up with acetone, shave their heads and use the extra hair for eye browes and or a moustache which you will glue on the model.
-5 planks (2 vertical ones for the legs , two horizontal ones for the hips and one vertical one for the spine) about 4 meters of wood would do , even second hand wood floor ones will do . take them quite wide (about 10cm ) for more stability.
-a wooden coat hanger (wood will allow you to nail it on the spine).
-two washing up gloves. fill these up with foam and paint them will model paint in skin color.
-bubble air plastic and or newspapers will fill up perfectly the void sand make bigger shoulders and muscles in arms, and legs. Ther eis no need to put wood in arms , unles syou want to lift them in a certain position. In this case electricity pipes will be perfect too.
