looking for advice to repair a ship.

Postby jean1951 » Thu Oct 10, 2013 5:31 pm

Hello,

I purchased the Kligon fleet. I belive it was the dreadnought that was made in resin. While cleaning up the model a piece broke off the back of the ship. I would want put the piece back on. I have never used glue or any other product to fix a resin piece. I certainly do not wish to used a material that would futher damge the ship. Woudl you have any suggestions.

Best regards,

Jean

I would use either glue or epoxy potty. That's the stuff I used for warhammer 40K models.

Superglue will bond resin extremely well.

I'd suggest a thin superglue.

Thank you for the advice. Sent the dreadnought into dry dock. I has been repaired I just received it yesterday. So today we shall prime the ship. Painting will start tomorrow and hopefully it will attack something in mid november.

Thanks again for the advice.
