Yes--absolutely fine to use it for a while and then place it on the bone (or even choose not to....)  The team won't want to break it, of course.

>> Bullet 3:  You are limited as to how you may connect anything to a mission model.
>> This means that you may not "attach" anything to the mission model (even the robot).  The cast can slide over part of the robot--if it can slide off.  It can sit with its sides in a container--if you can dump it out of the container.  The team can use the holes in the cast to manipulate it--as long as the cast can be separated.  Note that this is a starting condition--the Robot may activate a pincer to grab tightly onto a mission model, if the robot does it while acting autonomously.

>> Bullet 2: You may not take mission models apart, even temporarily.
>> This probably isn't as relevant, but it is a similar constraint.  No changes to mission models are permitted.
