Broken Unifive God Phoenix - Need Advice For Repairs


Recommended Posts

I am hoping some of our more esteemed model builders might see this as I need some advice.

Back in the early Noughts, I picked up Unifive's beautiful Gatchaman God Phoenix. I had it out and on display until a cat got up on a shelf and knocked it off.

The resulting 5.5ft fall from the shelf caused one tailfin to snap off and broke the pins that hold the wings in place against a L bracket within the body. I tried last night to finally see if I could fix the wings. I attempted to bend the L brackets slightly to hold the wings in place, but without the pins, the wings still just flop around.

I thought about things some and since I don't know anyone who can weld, is there any sort of bonding agent that would weld diecast metal? I will post some pics later on tonight when I get home.
