Finally, an update ! Abandoned for so long, I almost forgot that I have blog haha.....
Anyway, cut things short, here's what I've working on recently, or just now.
|A rather poor condition, broken pegs of a figurine, namely the famous Miku Hatsune.|
So when my friend, also the owner of the Fb page Doujin Packers asked me to fix this figurine in bad shape, I also doubt myself whether I could do a good job for it or not, well, I should give it a try. =)
|Broken peg stucked inside Miku's neck. Suspect it was superglued and, tear off right from the body. Ouch.|
|One of the twintails' accessories also broke and "moving" around as it pleased. Noted that this side of twintail are moveable. A figurine should stay static, unless cast off able. :3|
|Another poor peg ripped off from the stand base. Lucky me, its not glued, able to take it out and reposition it back onto the stand base.|
|Weathered stand base. I do not know what's that whiterish mark doing on the far left, perhaps, superglue spilled on it while previous owner (maybe?idk) trying to fix it up.|
|Tools for the rescue mission.|
|Drill em up, stick em up with a brass rod. What's not in picture; 2nd drill n pinning the brass rod.|
|Testfit. Move the right twintail forward more to give the figure a much balance stand. No more sagging, achieved. Oh, this haven't superglued yet.|
|Good comrade. You serve me well. Rest now my old 1.2mm drillbit.|
|Hmmm, not quite catch the twintail positioned. While the original left one were going backward, twisted the right one to go forward more, balancing it up.|
Apart of my drillbit snapped and stucked inside Miku's neck, I think I'm done fixing it. Time used: 15min, plus a cup hot coffee.
