  • Broke the tail of my 777 and 757 :(

    I am really pissed off right now, i broke my tail of my 757 1/500 scale and 777 1/200 scale. What do i do to fix it? Just glue them back on or i have to do something else.

    757: Was on the shelf, sister knocked it off, hit the floor, and the whole tail section flew off.




    777: Dropped from the shelf and landed on tail.

      The 757 is a write off, oh well its only 1/500 anyway

      777, eh just do something that other countries do, duct tape it on!

        I'd say glue it. I've had almost the same happen to my DL 777. 5/6 of the tail broke of when for some reason the "apron" it was on collapsed. Repaired it with glue, and the scar is only minimal.

          They're definately in need of some superglue. I bet its not the first time its been used on an aircraft!

              I would glue the tail back on....but only after the NTSB finishes their investigation.

                  Remember, if you don't fix it properly and then try to fly it, you could face some hefty FAA fines.

                          I've had this happen more than once (*cough**cough!* )- superglue has worked best for me. But make sure it's superglue and not regular model glue. The model glue will melt the plastic and leave more 'cratering' in the plastic around the cracks. Once it's glued you can thinly apply some putty or plaster or something of the sort and gently sand it down, and then repaint. That's always what I've done.
