Problems with Bones Kraken

Recommended Posts

I painted this fellow a while back, but now I'm having a problem. The piece of mast/bowsprit that is supposed to hold the model up keeps bending and coming loose. Is anyone else having this issue? (It is not shown bent in the picture; this is just to specify which piece.) If so, how did you fix it?

I don’t have an answer for you, but I received the Bones Kraken this past Christmas so I’ll be following your thread for answers.

Hm, maybe drill a hole in it and insert a metal rod.

Or a wooden dowel rod, stain it to look appropriate.

Get a few pipe cleaners, burn the fuzzy off, wrap around the bending mast, paint to match underwater rope.

I was about to suggest the same. I'll add maybe drill a bit further into the Kraken itself. Just for the extra support.
