Broken neck plug g1 SHS Dainty help! (fixed)
« on: December 28, 2012, 11:16:40 AM »
I have a dainty with the first 3 plugs of her fringe missing, so I went about gently pulling the head of and it instantly popped/ripped nearly clean right off (ooops!)
What glue is best used to reglue head back on?
(I have some standard superglue and Gamesworkshop plastic glue on hand)

Also I do not have her hair colour in my nylon box, should I remove a plug of hair from base of mane or discreatly steal some hair from her tail for the very small amount I need for her fringe?

Thanx Guys!

Epp!  You have to unbraid all of that?  I have one that needs a few plugs, I was just going to pilfer some from her tail.

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeh! What happened to you Dainty?!

Oh and I think any super glue that is good with plastic. But be careful.

Yeah, I cut the forlock off of my gal as a child. Borrowed from tail (and looks much better with super long forlock in my opinion). Some use locktite or krazy glue to put heads back on; I've used krazy glue and I don't go too crazy with it-a little goes a long way, you'll have to hold it in place for a bit for it to set. Best of luck to you with your restore. :o)

I ll third or forth or fifth the comments above :P Stealing a little from her tail is your best idea as its probably not going to be noticeable.

I know most people use good old super glue and have absolutely no issues. But I am surprisingly fussy with glue [mainly as it can break down over time and yellow terribly and not all of it is great on plastics so I use model glue [so what you have from gamesworkshop although I buy it in model shops - its the same stuff].
