    This is my first scratch build articulated finger.
    Start with using marvel crossover, hulks figure's hand as base.
    Follow by styrene rod to form his fingers.

    Looks great! One suggestion I have is to replace the styrene tubing with metal rod. The styrene rod will actually wear away over time whereas the metal will not.

    When you say metal rod, what are you referring to? Cutting a nail down or a specific metal rod at a hobby shop?

    Yep, steel or aluminum rods. You can get them at hobby shops or local home improvement stores.
