Cut Off At the Knees

This stand can be just made out in the picture described as “the real horror”.  The front two figures had snapped off at the ankles – the only breakages that I attribute to plastic fatigue (brittleness).  I had repaired them successfully using super glue and PVA (white) glue and had just touched up the flocking.  In tapping the base to remove excess flock the two figures snapped off at the knees!  Bugger!

If you look closely you can see the previous break at the ankles.  For the next repair they are getting a total cover in PVA.
