A little unrelated but thanks because I had a PVC figure that was broken at the base and had no intention of fixing it.
After some work on my current project now, I just thought about fixing my figure.

The MegaHouse Air Gear Simca has an incredibly bad base(all their bases seem to be transparent thin plastic) and the figure was pretty heavy so eventually it snapped. So last night, very late in the morning, I took some of my tools(that I wouldn't have if I didn't take up gk) and did some simple work and bam within 20 minutes, completed:

The stupid thing about this design was bad was because there was only one peg on the base and the other foot wouldn't exactly fit into the other support. Surprisingly there were already indents to where to drill under the base...?

Anyway thanks again, wouldn't have done this if I wasn't doing garage kits.
