    LRC Multi-melta Assembly Problems

    I am having problems with my multi-melta staying attached to the mount on my LRC. I am using Loc-tite super glue to mount the thing (which has worked well on the other metal/plastic joints I have glued). At first I didn't want a SM holding it, just have it hanging from the mount. But the darn thing was too heavy. Then I put the SM in the hatch to hold it. The glue seemed to bond just fine then and was holding. However, every time I went somewhere with it, it fell off, even when padded well (I assume the car vibrations were causing it shake loose).

    I am thinking about using some green stuff to fill out the mount, but that is a lot of work to shape it and I'm not that good at GS molding. Anyone have any suggestions on how to mount this thing?

    Thanks

    Ahhhh Metal things liek that are always a pain, each one of my Devastators is the same.

    To fix the problem jus put a small amount of green stuff where you would normally join it (not partically filling it out etc - but so its hidden in the join) and then press your multimelta into the game, after 5 mins it would have stuck good and proper and after a few hours its completely sorted, if you want added strength just add a wee bit of superglue around the edges.

    goto walmart(or similar store) and get youself some 5minute two part epoxy. Its like 4$ and have done a ton of minis with it. The bond is so good that you can drop the mini and the joint will not let go.

    Or that, you can get it in Homebase for £3.99 and its called Aldredyte I think, or something that sounds VERY similar. Oh im ashamed, I work at the damn place.

    I'm familiar with two part epoxy. Only downside is that it can get on everthing.

    Thanks for the help.

    hi

    what you need is the following

    http://www.evobond.com/new_page_9.htm

    it speeds up the gluing processand adds a lot of strength.

    i use one similar to this i just done a quick google search to find this one.I used it on my crusader for the same thing and those fidly bolter sponsons.
    Just glue one side and spray the activator on one side and it will stick within seconds,so perfect to put fidly bits together.

    hope this helps

    Thanks, I'm familiar with the accelerators for super glue. I've been led to believe from my chem classes that these actually reduce the strength of super glue, not increase it. Then again, that was 8 to 10 years ago and they may have better stuff out now. I'll go do some research.

    I also have had this problem, I have remedied this two different ways with the two LRC's I have built. The first one I did was pintlemount a plastic multimelta form the landspeeder onto the storm bolter upgrade. The second way I did it was pin the metal multimelta from the LRC kit to the platic mount. It was tricky at first to get the right angle and the multimelta in position, but once it was superglued it stayed put because of the pin and I haven't had any problems with it at all. Hope this helps.

    I gave up, put a blob of greenstuff on the hull, and had the MM with its tip haning over into the GS. Then I got a plastic multi melta and used that because it's lighter and less in the way.

    The plastic multi-melta is starting to sound like a better and better deal. I've got one off a land speeder that's busted up (they don't take 10 ft falls that well). I'll dig it out and see if that looks all right.

    Thanks again everyone.
