Fixing .50 cal leg

Post  battymatt on Tue Apr 22, 2014 5:08 am

Hey I just received a Germ s001 in the mail today.
Unfortunately, on the .50 cal rifle one of the legs is not attached and appears to have broken off. Is there anyway to fix while still retaining the movement? Or am i stuck gluing into a "fixed" position.

Which part is broken? The ball or socket?

It looks like you can probably just glue that little nub back on. Try the tiniest bit of super glue and use some tweezers to get it just right.

I do not have the hands of a surgeon  Sad 

Also the nub somehow is split in half. May have been damaged before the shipping but i dont know.

Thank you

Try using a really tiny screw Matty, I've seen some pretty small ones that would fit the size of that peg/nub on some Transformers figures I've dismantled.
