Finally, HQ!
« on: April 21, 2013, 10:35:45 AM »

Found a unit which required some TLC at one of the Chinook and Hobby stores in Calgary.



It needs some work, but with a bit of help from the Mike, and others, I'll have it back up and running.

Congrats! From what I can see you might only be the small guns, the surveillance camera and the landing platform.

The only missing items were one of the searchlights, and one of the trays.  I put it on my comic-boxes, and there wasn't enough room for the helipad.

A bunch of broken tabs including both cameras, one of the machine guns, and 3 of the stockade walls (Wall C-beside the Vamp bay, and both of the "front" walls beside the door.)

A bunch of the decals could stand to be upgraded too (and swapped with Canadian ones, eh ;) )

There is some glue detritus where they glued in a few of their broken stockade pieces.  Is there a good way to dissolve the glue, without damaging the set?

I thought you where trading one of your dragonfly's and other vehicles to g.ijoecollecter3400 for a skystriker, vamp, and black dragon chopper...?   So you must have 3 dragonflys then...?  LOL ;D

Depends on the glue. Try soaking a piece in water for a couple days first since it's the least likely to damage the plastic.

Acetone (nail polish remover) is the other common option but it may melt the plastic.
