XIII: Let's get Metal!

So, at long last, some of my mail-order bits have arrived. Metal bits on plastic models mean... new glue. Krazy Glue; this is the 3rd type of glue I've purchased since starting this hobby a little over a month ago, and my least favorite of the bunch. Love it or not though, gluing needed doing.

The coffin-lid shields are a little smaller than I was expecting, so I've altered my plans for them a little, but I still like the look of 'em. The havoc shoulder pads are a nice fit too, really helping to make these minis feel more nurgley.

These 2 guys are the furthest along, mostly just a tiny bit of GS touch-up is needed before they can go to the painting stage. I suppose that means it's almost time to buy some Green Stuff and get busy.

  1. Krazy Glue is not the worst cyanoacrylate out there, but it is far from the best. It's very runny and can be quite messy.

    I'd recommend picking up some Loctite medium viscosity. I've seen it at many stores, such as Target, Wal-Mart, Albertson's, Safeway, and more. It applies better than Krazy Glue and is less likely to run into recesses and obscure your details.
