5.2. List of NON-LEGO pieces or LEGO-violations
|Noise-sensor position inside of the head.|
|Noise-sensor electronics and sensor-multiplexer.|
|To fix the 2 potentiometers the holes of a
bracket and a 1x4 Technic brick with holes are enlarged.
The potentiometer-shafts have to be filed a bit to fit into the gears and bush.
|To fix the CdS-sensor-wires, cut a 1x4 plate.|
|IR-LED in 1x4 Technic brick with holes (enlarged one hole)|
|Sound-sensor-switch placed inside of a 2x4 brick|
|Thin plastic disc added to Gear16 at neck-horizontal to prevent blocage. Shortened axle 8 to dimension 7 in neck mechanics.|
|The same plastic disc is added to the rotation-sensor block of the neck mechanics.|
|Left and right microphones glued to LEGO ears|
|Top microphone fixed to the top of GASTON's middle single hair, which is a LEGO ribbed tube.|
|Technic 12 Gear Bevel glued to short axle in neck vertical mechanics.|
|Cut LEGO ribbed tube which forms the mouth and add rests to the extrema.|
|This part allows access to the sound-sensor sensitivity regulator, a potentiometer which is soldered to the PCboard.|
|Some wires are bundled together and fixed to the neck.|
