HELP!!!! What do I do about this?

Recommended Posts

Hey all

 Anyone have an idea on how I can fix this? I was thinking about using a hair dryer and warm it up, the clamp it together and use cold water to set it to the new shape. I'm I wrong, never had this problem and I really don't want to screw up my Hellcat. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

Do things line up well when the halves are pulled tight? If so, nylon zip ties work great!

I’d agree with Bill, if the halves and tail align strap it up and feed liquid cement and wait a couple of days........

Damn! I didnt think about using zip ties. See it does pay off being on these forums you learn sumpin' new every day. Thanks Bill.

Glue it, Airfix plastic is soft and will conform. I normally use clamps, but I like the zip tie idea, just be careful not to over tighten it, zip ties are stronger than you think.

Love the zip tie idea. As a word of warning the fit gets a whole lot harder once you put the bulkheads in too
