Ok, I have a gyrocopter that has been in assembly for a while, and while its a decent model, how do you keep those stupid heavy metal blades on? Or do you have a substitute? I have it all together, bar the blades. I for the life of me cannot pin it an any way shape or form. I don't want to clump glue on just to get it to stick. So how did you do it?
Thanks in advance.
I drilled holes to where the blades meet, and even pinning through there, it still doesn't hold up. But I see what you're saying now. Pin them all good so that they are all on the wheel, and basically set it on the shaft? I'll try that. I thought of making my own blades out of paper or balsa wood and plasticard.
Pinning and green stuff only way to do it - pinning is difficult as the blades are relatively thin and you can only use small width wire which is why you need to green stuff to help out

lets just all go ahead and agree it's time for a plastic gyrocopter.
Agreed, something like a gyrocopter should be pretty easy to make out of plastic by now. Most of the new plastic stuff has far more detailed and thin pieces, so this gyro should actually be kinda easy. It might see a lot more use then too. In bigger games you need it to make your dwarfs more competable
The gyrocopter model was probably the thing that got me most attracted to having dwarfs as my second army, too bad it does not do terribly well in battle and is tough to glue from what I've heard. Oh well, there are plenty of other cool things about the dwarfs! I'm hoping that the gyrocopter will be better in 7th edition in respect to gluing and gaming.
