Line Mar Match Box Construction 030 - Man

I found a Line Mar Match Box Construction Set from the 1930s, complete and with instructions. The box claimed the set made 100 different toys. I decided to test that claim -- one toy at a time. You can read all the posts for the Line Mar construction project at 100 Toys.
 Attaching the head was
a problem once again.

030 Man

The man figure was relatively easy to build. This figure appears several times in this instruction sheet. It's used for the 026 Walker, 031 Rope Walker, and 033 Acrobat. 

And all have the same basic challenge -- getting the head to attach securely enough to the body so it doesn't fall off. That intersection of the two dowels doesn't leave a lot of room to work in.

But beyond that, the build was trouble-free. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the fiberboard collars held the arms securely enough to keep them parallel to the ground. I could take all the time I needed to set up the photo.
