These are my top 3 colorful-metaphor inducers.

1) LR Crusader. Specifically the !$#&%*%% hurricane bolters!!! Takes frustration to a whole new level. I can't wait for the all-plastic 3-in-1 LR box to come out!!
2) Old metal/plastic Devastators. This is a real close second to #1. Trying to get everything lined up >just so<, then everything falling apart right before you start gluing the damn thing!!! ARG!!!
3) Exorcist - Now, I love my bolter bitc....ummm.....Sisters like no other, but trying to get all those metal pieces to align and be flush is just aggravating. Then trying to figure out the best way to glue the 3 pieces of the missle tubes together is lots o' fun. Hello, soldering iron!!

Engrim Van Horstman a WFB chaos special character on dragon, could never get it to stay together, I was 12 at the time. But I found it the other day and even with pinning I cant get it to stay together.
Also Oblits I had to do some much filing and GS on those things and I still cant get all the little guns to stick so I just gave up. So my guy has no guns screw, its chaos

Yeah I have the same issues, I don't pin because I don't want to dull my drill going through that crap, they should just make everything plastic, it saves everyone effort, I make a point to never buy blisters again after putting together my crappy ork warboss and stormboys because of the metal->plastic glueing, now there was a smard lad that invented that idea.

Many long hours were spent battling THOSE plastic spurs!

Not that they're hard to do or anything, but I find IG vehicles to be annoying as hell to assemble. Maybe it's the fact that you have to put all the wheels in individually, and them clamp the other plate on real quick before they fall out of alignment. (Why can't it be like the SM, where the wheels are moulded on?) I dunno, I just really hate assembling them. Chimeras, Russes, whatever.

Wraiths, not just because its hard to glue them together without pinning, its that they are so damned fragile!

Its like "Whoops I knocked your wraith over....and its spine broke". Even a little bump can brake them!

GW you money grubbing overminds! Make it all plastic! PLEASE!

For me...it had to be the slaanesh champion "booby snake"! The snake tail came in so many unnecessary itty-bitty pieces that I nearly tossed the model out the window in frustration trying to pin and glue them. By the time I got to the tip of the tail and trying to get the right angle to glue it at, I decided just to bury the end under some rubble to "disguise" it.
