stage 26, joining the forearm to the elbow:

The top of the forearm from stage 24 has two screws which I undo and keep safe:

Then the two black disks are stuck onto the arm with some glue:

Now the part i just unscrewed goes back on, but this time the bicep piece goes in between:

Now the small cylinder goes into the hole on the arm. The tricep arm peice then goes over the cylinder and screwed in:

Next, I get part 25-2 which is from the previous stage, and insert it through the elbow. Then I screw it in on teh other side with the supplied hex key:

Don't forget to put a washer on the screw:

Final step is to place the right elbow part into the center of the elbow joint. I didn't use glue but you should if yours doesn't stay. in:

So, General Lou, does that mean that the elbow joint hex screw remains accessible and we don’t have to get the joint tension perfect before inserting the last elbow part? Good if true, as World of Wayne suggested we get it as desired now, or else!

If you don't glue the circle bit over the hex screw, then yes you do not have to get the joint tension perfect. Also be careful not to tighten too hard and wear out the head of the screw or it will be stuck in there.

Hi General Lou, I just got through stage 26 and I had a question for you. When I connected the large cylinder (part 4-3 and 4-6 in step 10-12) I have a lot of play. Everything seems connected fine but it rattles quite a bit, especially when compared to the small cylinder. Is this normal?
