Sooo… been a long time and I’ve just recently got a box of tactical marines and a Primaris Librarian when I was with my dad last weekend.
Three guesses what this topic will be about even though this isn’t KoW related.
Anywhoos I started out by assembling my Librarian, trying to cut the stuff out of the sprues made me realize that I really needed to shell out money for stuff like plastic cutters and plastic glue (I had to get the latter and some files from hobby lobby because my LGS had none of that, heck when I was there they kept on pushing me and pushing me to buy their super glue for the models even though I kept on telling them I needed PLASTIC GLUE, it was then that one of the employees there said I would probably have to go to hobby lobby to get plastic glue).
Alright off that tangent about getting the proper glue, apparently nobody will tell you this but painting in sub assembly is a bad idea as it will mess up with the glue’s ability to stick. And after several failures of applying superglue to the right leg of my Librarian, there was an eventual buildup of superglue in the area where you glue the leg and the crotch together. So now they’re telling me that I have to scrape off the excess glue with a hobby knife (not as easy as those youtubers make it look) and quite possible get some engine stuff from autozone to completely strip my model of paint… after I wasted both paint and time trying to come up with a good color scheme…
And one more thing to bring up… there is some stupid gap where the chest and the front robe are supposed to meet in the crotch area and there is this gap that is driving me mad (so much for “Quality GW Plastic”) and they completely brushed me off when I brought this concern up… I even asked them to walk me through this and where do they point me? F#$KING YOUTUBE!!!
So aside from all this pent up anger from my failure at model building I ask for one thing.
