    Assembling a Penitent Engine?

    I just painted up a Penitent Engine and I was wondering how I can best assemble it. It's a heavy metal model, so maybe superglue won't be enough?

    I was thinking about maybe pinning the model (although I've never done this before) and I'm wondering how this works. Do I just use a hand drill to drill holes in the parts I want to connect, and then use a pin to keep them in place? And what should I use as a pin, is a paperclip strong enough?

    So basically, I'm asking you guys if I should just superglue it together, or if I should pin it. And if you advise me to pin it, how should I do it.

    You could pin it, or you could Zip-Kick it. Go down to your local hobby store and get a little thing of Zip-Kicker. Super glue the model and then spray the Zip-Kicker. It will make it'll dry in less than five seconds and it will strengthen the glue. So, just Zip-Kicker it.
    What signature?

    or water......waters the catalyst of superglue.so you could go buy zip-kicker or you could go over to your local tap and ask if they have any water.Also by the looks of the model id pin it to!!

    i had to pin every part of this together the worst parts were the hip joints

    i pinned it through the ring then ended up filling in the joint with solder.

    This model is a hell to assemble, only the Excorsict is worse
    And I would pin it, don't got any good advice on it though.

    i dont know what the penitent engine is like, but what i did with my wraithlord was i blu-tacced it to a chopping board, and put 5 minute araldite in the joints. i left it over night, and it was rock-hard by morning.
    I'm actually not in my sixties. For some obscure reason, my age is set 50 years older than what it actually is.

    Well, you drill a hole in the parts of the mini, lets say an arm and the slot where it is supposed to be.
    By using a hobbydrill, make a hole in both parts and put some wire or something in the holes. Also use superglue to increase the effectivness.
    I have never done it myself, only seen people do it.

    Loctite do a Superglue Gel, perfect for metal minis.
    I have used it for the last two years, and none of my metal models have broken, despite falling on the floor occasionally.
    It doesn't need 100% surface contact, so it will glue those nasty uneven joints, with a minute or so of holding in position of course.
