Hey guys,
Is there anyway to, with out breaking anything, remove arms/weapon/head positions safely or once they're glued they're glued

If you have not used a plastic cement the best way I have encountered is to place them in the freezer over night. This will constrict the bonds and the next day you should hopefully be able to easily break them apart. This will of course affect the whole model so you will have to break and clean the whole model. Also some chemicals like simple green, which are used for stripping paint, have known to break the bonds of the glue as long as they are not plastic cement. Plastic cement "welds" the parts together so the only way to get those apart is to cut them.

For this exact reason!! And also plastic cement can warp the models. They also make nasty joint lines if you use too much.

<shrugs> I just tend to use the glue designed for the substance to be glued, that's all.

Well they make plenty of other glues destined for plastic. I use plastic glue for plastic and super glue for resin and metal. But I stay away from cements because they melt it.

I use superglue for all - it's designed for all and though he bond is not as permanent and secure as plastic cement...the bond is also not as permanent and secure as plastic cement. I've never heard a good argument against super glue either - it is an exceptional bonding agent.

Its Rumble had the best overall answer, I'll second it. Mostly I just wanted to defend super glue Wink

Oh I love superglue as well. But I have really taken a liking to the Citadel thin plastic glue, surprisingly, and use that for my plastics. I can load up joints and it fills them in almost seamlessly and extra just flows in like a wash.

I had a misspent childhood with Airfix kits, that's all.
