Wraithknight B.C. part 1 a.k.a. Read the Bleeping Instructions!

Third time I've put this model together.  All of them have been for commissions.  Chomping at the bit to start my own.  Need to get two more before I start putting them together.

JJ modelling, this is an Eldar Wraithknight commission for Bryan.

Please read the instructions for this model.  Figured since this is the third time I've assembled this model I didn't need to use the instructions.  WOW, was I mistaken.  Thank goodness I had a wraithknight of my own to help me out.  Won't go into the details except to say please assemble one leg at a time.

This part, the oval saucer part in the middle, is still the bane of my existence.  Every time I've assembled this model it has been a hassle.  Hopefully next time it won't.  Modelling tip: this is inside part of the wraithknight please feel free to use as much superglue as you desire to keep it in place.  A hot glue gun wouldn't be overkill.

Still my favourite part out of the GW line.  It is a genuine lego piece.

No superglue needed.  As you can see it lined up.  Tension from the breast plate holds in place.

Little bit of pressure and Snap! and its in place.

Previous two wraithknights have taught me not to glue these parts on the body.  Also do not glue the torso to the legs.

  1. Try some plastic glue and you will never go back to superglue for plastic models.
    Something like this:

    It gives you time to work and position the pieces while achieving a kind of cold fusion that really bonds the pieces together.

    1. Icareane, have to admit I love working with plastic glue. You're right the work time is wonderful and when it cures it is extremely durable. Missed working with that stuff. Might break down and buy some again.

      Thanks for the link.

  2. Looking forward to seeing this Wraithknight finished on my table!

    1. Bee Cee, wow! Now that I know it is for you this project means a whole lot more to me.

    2. Thanks for the kind words! I look forward to Eldar and the beer that will be consumed at Renegade.

    3. You're welcome. I do to. I'll buy you your first round.
