We call that building character...
Thanks Dave, that'sgood to hear. What I've always loved about the RPF is that everyone is helpful, whatever their "level". I have asked the STUPIDEST questions in the past, and been met with kindness. When you're frustrated over build issues (as I so often am) coming here can be daunting because of the professionalism on display, but the people behind it are golden. Don't lose the joy of the hobby!I do love your updates. Very honest and refreshing, makes me realise I am not the only one struggling!
It's very much appreciated!Don't dispair (sp?) -I think most of us fight adhesives. There's a reason most Cons have a repair station...
I have awful luck with rubber cement on fake leather, it starts to come apart as soon as I've put the two pieces together. For most other issues with rubber cement it's usually my fault, I'm too impatient.
Hot glue? Total love/hate relationship.
Sorry, not much by way of advice. But did want to provide a little empathy
Thanks for the tip! Definitely considering fiber glassing the back of my armour, which has fallen in half three times now. Seriously considering gluing the backpack on the back piece permanently as a bridging piece.I share your pain with the gluing. I've tried various glues which don't seem to work as well for me as the for the quys in the YouTube videos! I moved to using a soldering iron on the back of the joints along with some extra filament. Works a treat. Not 100% rock solid but certainly good enough to keep it together until I have finished making it. I plan to use fiberglass matting inside to strengthen it all anyway
