Kotochan (9 месяцев назад) #31475143Oh wow, great stuff! It seems like a lot of work but sounds like it will last much longer and make the figure a little more sturdy. Thank you very much for all this information. I'm setting her down for the night and will try and work on her tomorrow.

You're very welcome! I hope for the best! Since the break won't be noticeable with this method I think it's a good one to try for you. :) It will keep the hair reinforced as well so it doesn't happen again! Another tip is that you might want to hold the pieces together with the epoxy glue for longer than the 20 seconds the package recommends. I would say to queue up a 5 minute youtube video or something and relax while holding the two pieces snug together for those 5 minutes while the glue dries, and then leave her somewhere to cure overnight with the twintail being supported by something (bunch up a towel underneath it, or some books, something like that) to allow the epoxy to harden to its full strength. :)

It should look good as new after all that! Luckily your break isn't in an area that actually shows, it seems it was just brittle PVC that broke at the peg. :X

The-Hurricane (9 месяцев назад) #31475132Oh it's alright, you can fix this! You don't even have to use the nendo blog to do it since that's more for removing pegs from pieces so you can insert a new one for moveable parts. Since Miku is a static figure, what you want to do is buy some wire, measure the width of the break and pick as thick of a gauge as you can while still having some plastic on either side of it. Drill a hole into both halves of the break, making sure you do it in the same spot on both halves, and then insert a small piece of wire, essentially creating a "bridge" between the two, this is so it will stay stable. Then you'll want to mix up some 5 minute epoxy glue and glue it all together, glue the wire in the holes and glue the part together with the wire in!
It's the same process as "pinning" a garage kit:

xteabunny (9 месяцев назад) #31475125It's okay, snapping a piece off a figure can be a very painful experience, but sometimes it is possible to save it! ( ´•̥̥̥ω•̥̥̥` )♡
I suggest looking at this article if you would like to repair her: mikatan.goodsmi...
Luckily, the damage seems minimal enough as to not be too noticable if you glued/reinforced the joint.


Thank you so much! I will read this carefully and hope for the best results ;o;
