Here is our Cloaked Flying Crank Ghost (FCG) for this year’s haunt (2013).
Download the instructions for building the mechanism and marionette from the Rocky Mountain Haunters website at http://www.rockymountainhaunters.com/images/FCG%20PARTS%20LIST.pdf
For the head movement, modify the rear eye hooks so there are two side-by-side rather than just the one in the middle. You will see where to attach the strings to the top of the head and back/bottom of the neck by watching the video.
My 8 year old son helped me build this project in our spare time. We started it in June and finished it just in time for Halloween. We had a great time building it together.
