    Hello Radicons!

    I want to spray one of my seekers and want to remove the clear windows parts.

    the bif one is ea to remove (only unscrew) but the front one on the head is a huuuge problem!

    did somebody have a little tip for me? :)

    I've never taken apart a Seeker mold yet, but it looks like all you would have to do is hammer out a single pin to get that piece loose from the rest of the nose cone.

    There should be a tutorial about removing pins over in that section (Pretty sure iit's in that "Contents" or "Index" thread, whatever it's called).

    I have disassembled a few Classic Seekers and to remove the small window you do indeed need to remove that pin.

    I have found it easier to paint around that pin. Its a pain in the ass to get out and it is easy to mask off the area that is the window.

    Weird, I had so much trouble the first time that I never messed with them again.

    Maybe you hammered from the wrong side.

    Not so. Im speaking in terms of Classics Ultramagnus. I had NO problems popping the pins in the arms/doors. But now im doing a commission and it is a LOT tougher. Specially the pin that connects the panels/doors to the arm. that one would not come out without some serious exertion.
