Does anyone know of a body that has good articulation that will fit a DID head sculpt, because frankly DID bodies are awful when it comes to articulation.
compared to what other bodies?because frankly DID bodies are awful when it comes to articulation
Dunno....DID bods couldn't really shoulder a rifle nicely, last time I checked. Kind of a big factor in this hobby...compared to what other bodies?
Sorry but I have to disagree. I have about 37 of these bodies (loose) and they are just as articulated as any other body out there. The only problem if you want to call it that is they are a little on the tall side and use a proprietary neck ball size so only their connectors will fit properly.
As for your question, which DID heads are you asking about? the newer ones, old ones, ones with adapters or without?
DID Heads in general have a smaller neck hole then say Dragon or Headplay. The adapters that come (sometimes, depends on the seller) with the new heads (from the all Era Body) have a small ball size so many of the "newer" bodies won't directly work.
You really should read through this to get an idea of what it out there, cause any body that takes a head with a neck can be made to fit, and bodies with neck adapters can also be made to fit...
Anything can be made to fit, it just takes a little modeling skill.
Also with so many of the same type of body on the market, don't be afraid to buy a few to test out, it never hurts to have different bodies in hand to play with.
No one body will do it all...at least that is what I keep getting told...
Looks shouldered to me, unless i am getting the word shouldering wrong...and this is one of the longer rifles around...Dunno....DID bods couldn't really shoulder a rifle nicely, last time I checked. Kind of a big factor in this hobby...

Kneeling as well...
Now I could play with it a bit more and have it really snugged up to his shoulder, but I was just playing around to take a quick picture. This body also does a nice weaver stance due to its shoulder articulation.
The limiting factor I think with any body is the hands/wrist pegs and feet/ankles as to which "action" pose they can make.
I like the DID body but to each their own, that is why there is so many others out there, variety, cause No one body does it all...
