Bonmarché Toy Soldier James Gear - The Production Factory (London)
We were asked by James Gear of The Production Factory if it were possible for us to create a 1.8m articulated “Old Fashioned Toy Soldier” for a Bon Marche’s November Magazine in five working days.
Our 3D Designer Richard North used a reference image supplied by James as the basis for a bespoke model drawn In Freeform. This model was then produced in a high density modelling board on our KUKA robot and the machined parts passed to our model making team for assembly and painting.
The machining was done in five parts – the legs, the torso, arms and head which enable the parts of the soldier to rotate and turn, and be as posable as possible.
The soldier was painted in a high gloss automotive paint finished and lacquered.
