Well... Now I'm building a Landspeeder. Again. And the fit is still as bad as I remeber it from six (or so) years ago...
Problem this time: The lower hull seems to be warped... If I place the rear end of the upper and lower hulls together the I get a gap of ca 1cm at the front end... Even after glueing this major gap, there will be a minor gap along the entire front end... Green stuff? *sighs*
Can anyone help at all?
Oh, and also: Building some scouts, I found that bolt gun no:B dosen't fit very well with it's supporting arm... Anyone else?

Currently painting the Waaagh! of Warboss Borboss - Goff and Evil Sunz warband
Personally, I'd just use a good, high-strength plastic welding glue (Tenax or Ambroid are my personal favourites), clamp everything down nice and tight, adjust for fit and so on, then just glue it really thoroughly and let the welding action fuse it into one solid piece. Keep the clamps (THESE, THESE and THESE or equivalents work wonderfully) on until it's cured and everything should stay put just fine.
You might also try some of the old tricks for fixing warped Resin parts - dunk the part in hot or even boiling water (BE CAREFUL!) to soften it somewhat, then gently try to bend it towards the shape you want. I have no idea if this will work on plastic parts, but it's worth a try - just don't go boiling your hands off or anything, OK?
One tip i suggest when gluing a plastic landspeeder is to wrap a rubber band around the ends to keep it nice and tight, just be careful not to let the superglue get on the rubber band or else you've got another problem (which can be solved, however, by the careful application of an exacto-knife).
