That bad… or because they are plastic?… (smile)

The gun carriages that are block trail pieces are not from the period of the War of the Revolution.

They didn't make their appearance until the 1790s during the French Revolutionary Wars.

Nice work…what kind of glue do you use?
I have trouble with gluing different plastics together.
Please let me know.

Thanks Kevin!.

Not mine my friend… I only share them…

But… I don't used glue to fixed the head of my plastic miniatures… what I do is make a small hole in the center of the neck … then I cut a pin point and insert it into the chopped head with the help of tweezers … then I insert the sharp point of the pin into the neck of the thumbnail … with constant pressure the trick works fine in most cases …

Loctite All Plastics works very well. So long as you have the activator any superglue works.

Antonio's blog is worth visiting; he does a lot of plastic conversions and he's a dab hand at watercolours too.

Thank you very much JeffersĄ
Yes, I do it in that way. With the loctite glue and patience, it use to work,
It´s important to sand the pieces before, for getting them roughened; fixing smooth surfaces is very difficult…

Thanks Jeffers – i'll see if that product is available in North America.

Thanks Antonio – i'll remember the sanding tip.
