Boba Fett v3.0 – 3D Print – Armor, Collar Plate, Repair, Continued

Let’s Fix This…

With the J-B Weld completely dry, I’m happy with the strength of the fix. So, onward I go…

The amount of of extra space needed was fairly large, in order to remove the tension on the Collar Plate while connected to the Back Plate. It will now need to be filled with filament.

I used my soldering iron to melt it into the opening.

This seemed to work pretty well, because it actually melted the existing plastic and really helped it to bond to the new filament.

Tools assembled for the next task…

The metal rasp was used, first, to take the majority of the overfill off…

The result. Lots of scratches, but these will all get filled with glazing putty later.
