Well have rebuilt her heel off shoe . All limbs attached and sanded . Still have a little work on chest that was broke off . Armature for arms being made and next step will show her completed ! paint restored and sealed .
She is 30 inches tall and I have confirmed she was made by Rubberlite . My friend is sending a photo of her in an ad for yarn company . She was modeling a knit suit with a twin like her a Brunette . This ones hair color is correct to her but will need to be freshened up touch ups .
