 TURAGA NUI
UCN:UCN1961577XZ-00
Description:IMPORTANT: MoD reader Jon Chown provided a solution for the one big problem I had with the original design for this. I have posted a new set of instructions here. Since this was the first known published set of instructions for the TURAGA NUI model, I have left them here for archival purposes, but suggest that you use the revised instructions instead.

TURAGA NUI model instructions created by Purple Dave. To produce this model, you will need the following six LEGOŽ sets:


#8540 VAKAMA

#8541 MATAU

#8542 ONEWA

#8543 NOKAMA

#8544 NUJU

#8545 WHENUA


A simple modification that did not get included in the pictures is to loop rubber bands between the neck and the arm-levers, just like the individual TURAGA models call for.


A change suggested by Jon Chown that has not been added to the pictures is that the lowest two 'L' shaped pieces in Step 12 should be flipped around so the short section points forward instead of backward like all the rest of the same type of pieces. This will prevent the need for adding the rubberband in step 17 as it will cause the red head to be supported better.
