The purpose of the pin is to strengthen an otherwise fragile joint. This is usually done to large metal models, where the heavier pieces make it far more likely that parts will fall off due to their weight. The pin gives support to the separate parts, and also gives the glue more surfaces to stick to.

Hope that helps!
