Since my post to he Analogue Hobbies Painting challenge hasn't gone through yet I'll show you my latest repair of Mr. UHF Antenna Staff.
The latest break had really compromised the white metal so that I was having an issue fitting things back together. I also didn't care for the glue selection so I had to go to the super market to find my preferred glue (Loctite Super Glue Gel). I had hoped to also find some plastic coffee stirrers to use as a sleeve to join the bits together, but no luck.
I ended up cutting a piece off a ball point pen ink tube. It was too large so I ended up cutting wedges from the ring and gluing them on.
I managed to somehow apply them and not glue my fingers together, but it was a major pain in the ass. It's gone from being a fairly slick repair to a total cluster pretty fast. Perhaps he knows an Ork with an ARC welder who did a quick repair for him out in the wasteland.
I hope to get some primer on him later today and maybe start painting him tomorrow.
I need to find something to wedge in my transport box to keep the figures immobilized.
Back to painting.
