    We do not have one in stock, but can fabricate.
    We will need to know size, and what it needs to do.
    When will it be required?
    A budget guide would be helpful.
    Cheers
    Rob

    Hi Adrian,

    Hi Adrian have u thought about puppetering the beaver as this would be much cheaper option than an animatronic puppet, If u need more advice or assistance please call on 07956 568606 u can also see what else we provide @ chrislloydmodelsprops cheers.

    Re- Animatronic Beaver

    Hi,
    I’m not currently available with regards to this, but I can highly reccomend someone
    who has vast experience building animatronic creatures. I feel this is a one-man build
    as a company would charge too much.

    Adam Keenan, based in London on: 07796175241
    his email is: adam@akfx.co.uk
    website: http://www.akfx.co.uk

    He would be happy to talk it through and offer advice.

    I’m sadly unable to help at the moment as I’m currently over in New Zealand, but I would recommend the guys at Creature Effect Ltd near Uxbridge or Animated Extras down at Shepperton Studios, it depends on time and budget.

    Good luck with the beaver

    Hi,
    I think we may have come to the table a little later than others on this one, but if you are still looking for quotes to supply an animatronic beaver, then I would certainly like to convey our interest in doing so.

    I’d concur with someone else’s suggestion of puppeteering the model if the shot list allows it. It’s always a far more flexible and budget friendly solution. Certainly safer when working for an overseas client.

    If you have any more spec you can send in terms of the features the puppet needs to include, then I will be happy to do a quote.

    Thanks for your enquiry, we make a lot of stuff, but animatronics is not our thing.

    Try artem.com.
