ok so i just got my hellcannon in the mail after a tremendously long wait. ive started tackling the assembly but ive got one concern in particular. ive assembled plenty of metal models before so filing and forming the metal models is nothing new to me. the issue is how badly the 2 main halves of the cannon line up. i guess im just looking for some reassurment that the amount of grinding/filing im going to be doing with this thing is reasonable and that im not going to be doing more than usual and damaging the model
so what im really asking is if anyone else who has built hellcannons has had to do more-than-usual modifying of the main halves of the cannon in order to get them to fit smoothly.
yea i had, i think it's with all the hellcannons...
sadly enough (go go go finecast (although i don't like finecast either with all those air bubbles)
Had the same problem with mine. I used 2 sets of pliers in order to bend the barrel slightly, glued it together and used "greenstuff" to fill the gaps

Now now lads. This is a forum about grown men playing with toy soldiers. Lets be adults please.
it is a well known fact that the HC is one of the worst models in warhammer to assemble. Something to do with the crappy quality of the molds used, in addition to the fact that large pieces of pewter warp as they cool.
You are experiencing what everyone else has when putting this bad-boy together. mine in paticular took weeks of work and a considerable amount of green-stuff. It's a very tough build as you have to try and bend some of the parts without damaging the model and grinding it down to fit without grinding it out of shape.
Thanks, everyone, for all the replys! Its good to know that I'm not the only one having problems with mine. Ill be a lot more comfortable bringing out my dremmel now.
I'm a very tolerant person, but I couldn't work on that thing for more than an hour at a time..some days I just had to drop what I was doing and walk out of the room! Then I bought a second one...why did I do that?
*looks at your avatar*...
i want a second one to, but hell no not in tin
If they finecast it it'll be the same mold. It's true that the mold will most likely be re-worked, but the mini will look identical.
I'd rather they plastic'd it up in a new kit.
I haven't even bought a HC yet but just reading this thread makes me want to go outside, find a rock, and glue it to a stand with a skull on it and call it a HC instead of assembling one from GW '0.o
