    Oops! Made a Stupid Glue Mistake!?

    Hi, I actually feel like a dope, but need urgent advice.
    I glued a Plasma Gun instead of a Bolter in my Noise
    Marine's Hands. I don't want to waste the model, but
    it would be way more beneficial for my army if he had
    a bolter. how can I get rid of the Plasma gun without
    Damaging the Model too much?

    I used GW Super Glue...

    Thanx in Advance :confused:

    Ouch.

    Ouch. GW glue sticks like crap to a shoe. I would remove it by using nail polish, possibly paint stripper, or maybe some other nasty chemical compound . Too bad if you've already painted him, but its the only way I can see to save the model. if worst comes to worst, you can always just cut it off, and clear it up with some paint work.

    Good luck

    I humbly Thank you sir, as I think cutting the hands and replacing them would probably be best...
    Luckely his not painted yet...

    Turn problems into opportunities. Just alter the gun somewhat. Extra cabling, gubbins here and there, some big nasty dish on the front and hey presto, a Sonic Blaster.

    When this happened to me, I carefully used my exacto knife to slice off the plasma gun from the top of his hand. So he has the handle still in his grip, but the top of the gun has been cut off, then I carefully scraped off any glue and tried to kind of reform the top of his hand alittle. then I cut the handle off the bolter so that the top of it fit onto his hand where the plasma pistol was.(Since he already had the handle from the past plasma pistol) Goodluck

    Couldn't you just take off the arms?
    The plastic sprue has enough extra parts doesn't it? So you could just take off both arms and replace them with new ones.
