1/55 chunky monkey restoration question


Recommended Posts

Hey fellas! Long time member.. haven't posted in ages!!

Anywho! It's good to be back. Just started getting back into macross. To celebrate, i just picked up 2 loose 1/55 valks. However, due to age, the joints are hella tight.. almost feel like theyre gonna snap when turned. Esp the forearm swivel. 

Also the screws are rusted. 

Anyone happen to know what screw sizes fit as a replacement? How about spring replacements in the legs? Let's say at some hardware store. Also, any tips on how to loosen up the movement of the non-spring joints.. would WD40 work to loosen it?

Thanks for help in the past and now! Im just happy im back in!
