I got meself a Zoanthrope today.
Yay!
But, I can't get the tail end with the head, I am using super glue but I left it for about an hour but practically nothing happened.
Anyone know why? Can anyone enlighten me on how to solve this problem?
Please.

Know what you mean, dude, Zoanthropes are damn hard to glue together.
Don't use too much glue. And try to prope other models around it to hold it up, like say a lictor set against it on one side and a broolord on the other, then leave it there for a couple of hours. That's pretty much how I did mine. Hope that's helpful.

Yup. Wait. And wait.

Check on it form time to time though, to make sure it ain't leaning to one side. there's nothing more embarassing than a leaning Zoanthrope.

If your still having problems getting the model to stick ......

I'd re-clean the model of all the glue already used first, if you just add more glue then your just glueing glue to glue and the pieces will not bond. So make sure the glue is cleared then try again using a small amout of glue, it should bond in a few seconds.

Failing this just pin it, that'll keep it together.

you could also try gently bending the tail into a coil on the base to make it a little less top heavy

I found pinning metal models is best, second super glue is very user unfriendly :ireful2:. What I do is use a small amount of Super glue on one piece and a small amount of White Glue on the other half. Hold it together for approximately 30 seconds and it this ussaully speeds the drying time and strengthens the grip. Just don't over do it with either glue. The super glue reacts quickly to moisture thats why its so easy to glue your fingers together as opposed to you model. :)

Best way is to pin it than use a bit of normal gw crazy glue and green stuff. That should hold it.
