    Need articulation help

    So I started 2017 by going after some projects I have been meaning to get to. One of them is adding articulation to a curvy barbie. So far things were going good and I added a revoltech joint to the arm.


    But when I got to the legs, Lo and behold...they are hollow...


    Does anyone have suggestions on how I could add a joint here? I was think about using hardening spray foam...the kinda stuff you use as a sealant and insulation. Loctite makes one and it is available at home depot. Wondering if anyone has used it. Any and all suggestions are appreciated. FYI I have two Curvy bods modded and ready for the after dark section. As soon as I can add some articulation to these ladies I will post them. Thanks!

    Ooooh, I can't wait to see how they turn out! The lack of articulation is the only thing that puts me off buying one of the Curvy Barbies, I love them otherwise!
    What about some kind of epoxy?

    I figured that I could add some articulation easily and they were 7.94 us during the holidays so why not...epoxy or caulk was an idea that I was toying around with, but with the added weight...I was thinking of filling the legs with hot glue. that may keep it light and inexpensive to fill.

    I think you are on the right track, as far as either using a solid filler, or cutting the legs, and fashioning plugs, which can be drilled to accept the joints.
