Ok, so while i was making my Leman Russ, i decided that i hate making the tracks on the tanks, and was wondering what parts of a model you hate assembling
Be it the arms on Space marines or whatever, what is the most dreaded part of a model you just cant stand making, yet you have to?

My most hated part of putting models to gather has to be the tracks also i almost never the them put on right i usually just put the track guards on the part i messed up.

Bases. Everything else is fine.
I find IG tracks pretty annoying too
What I find really annoying though is WH penitent engines (the whole thing) especially without pinning. At least they look pretty nice once they're painted
I also dislike when I need to glue long metal parts like swords or one-handed guns onto plastic models for my conversions. The weight often pulls them down and if you don't pin them down or use some putty they can be broken off pretty easily. Same as above though
There is no such thing as a plea for innocence in my court. A plea for innocence is guilty of wasting my time. Guilty.

Bases, getting rid of all the mold lines on metal models takes forever, and having to pin arms on things that fall off to easy.
Well, I used to dislike assembling tanktreads. But now I assemble them pretty fast.
Metal is annoying to build together. You should, 9 out of 10 times, pin the stuff and alligning the bits and drilling holes takes up a lot. Not to forget semi-metal kits like Thousand sons marines. Metalbits on plastic take up loads of glue and still don't hold. And given some bits are to small to pin there's no way besides glueing it on.
Another anoying part is removing mold lines. I know it should be done, but it's something that each model has and in the end, while painting you'll always notice you've forgot something.
I hate cleaning up models- I just hate it, especially plastics which get shredded by a file in no time at all.
If you are having trouble glueing metal to plastic and having it hold then just use PVA, once it's dry not Hell nor high water will get it unstuck. Takes a while though.
Up, up and away!
I personally love assembleing models. If that was all I had to do, I would do it all day
The one and only thing I didn't like, I dispised was those little cylindrical things inside the old rhinos. You would put them inside the tracks, and they basically provided spacer. Well, there were about 10 of these a side, and added anywhere from 15-30 minutes of assembly time depending on how much they wanted to co-operate with you...
All metal war machines, just getting all the parts of my flame cannon to allign when I first built it drove me bonkers!
