Re: [Meccano] Repair old remote control R2D2

From those photos it looks like only one wire has snapped. That will need re soldering. I can't see where it snapped from, but it should be obvious, there will be a bit of wire left in the solder joint it snapped from.

Once you've done that, see if it works.

AT-AT Custom insert

Hi Guys, It always bugged me that the inside of the AT-AT looked so empty. So time for a bit of custom insert work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oe-GOSNxXB8&t=3s For those that worry, this is a non perminant addition. I wonder why Kenner never thought to do this at the time (the insert, not t...

Re: 3D Printers and Scanners

This is from a few years back. But after I got my un-opened mail away x-rayed, I got the data 3D printed by a friend. So I have a copy of what is inside the still sealed box.

Re: Repro vehicle stickers

It's really up to you what you do as it is your toy.

I do some replacement stickers, or some custom stickers. Just depends on how battered the ship is. A lot of people just want to make a childhood toy look nice again. And for that replacement stickers work really well.

Re: Heavy frosting Issue

It's not sunlight you need, it's gentle heat.

All you are doing is melting the frosting. Follow the video and it will look as good as new.
