Default Assembling Metal Screamers

Hi all.

I've recently aquired 3 NiB metal Screamers of Tzeentch.

Im trying to assble them but I am really struggling to do so without a huge seam where the tail joins the body.

Any tips?

Thanks in advance

you could seal it with some liquid green stuff or normal green stuff.

The metal Screamers are right pickles for going together.

I recommend pinning the tail with two parallel pins so they resist torsion, then - as Haskanael says - green-stuffing the join.

Regular greenstuff is the way to go.

Fo metal models the gaps tend to be bigger and give the delicacy of metal models I would say use normal green stuff over liquid green stuff

Me: To be honest im amazed there isn't a chaos god of not revising or at least chaos god of procrastination

MidnightSun: There will be, when enough people do it. Y'know when the Eldar were all engaging in their hedonism and Slaanesh ripped open the Eye of Terror with his creation? Slaanesh will have NOTHING on the God of Procrastination, and his vile minions will carve the galaxy asunder in a thousand year reign of blood.... Tomorrow
