Hi guys! With the forced "stay home" for Coronavirus I am finally attacking my vehicles gray/unmounted backlog
I recently acquired some very old and never painted models from a friend, including a Land Rider
I devotedly (All those models where from one of my best buddy and old time 40k opponent, so a lot of love for them is involved) unmounted the Land rider. It's a loyalist one with LOTS of spikes from old "white plastic" sprue.
Problem is, spikes themselves are VERY fragile. My own goofiness does not help, and my children also helped as I forgot one time to put the model outside their reach...
So, what I ask you is:
Spikes seems very fragile, but maybe it's because of the fact that the bits in question are really old white plastic from 95 or so... I have plenty of more recent vehicle plastic bits, so I can switch to them, but I guess this would lighten the problem but not solve it
Are there some tricks to make spikes more solid? I do not know, insert some metal points, reinforce the structure or use green stuff (liquid?)
I actually like the "full spiked" aesthetic a lot, but I fear to get a lot of broken points in a little time...
