Hi, I'm not sure if this topic belongs in this thread or modeling.
I have a painted Tyranid Hive Tyrant, which is pewter, for those who don't know, and I have placed pins in the torso to hold the arms in place better.
But I have decided to magnatize my monstorous creatures to give me more flexablity in converting the model.
My problem is the pins in the torso are stuck fast. I am wondering if there is a solvent that can dissolve super glue, or should I try to buy a small pair of pliers to work the pin out of the model ?
Otherwise I would have to put holes in all the arms I want to model on my Hive Tyrant to match up with the pins in the torso.
Any help or thoughts are welcome.
Thanks in advance !
My old pewter tyrant was glued (poorly) by my little brother (before I really cared about 40k and just wanted to play a bit). Now that I am getting back in, I dumped my tyrant into a jar of Acetone (nail polish remover) which allowed me to peel the parts apart and scrape the glue off. It is taking a few dunks to clean all the glue off though. Be forewarned, this will likely kill your paintjob. Also, I suggest wearing vinyl gloves or something similar to prevent your fingers from drying out or tasting like Acetone :x
Build a man a fire, and you will keep him warm for a night.
Set a man on fire, and you will keep him warm the rest of his life.
Depending on what the pins are made of you can use needle-nose pliers and just yank them out.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
