    Hey guys. I was just messing around with my G1 Swoop and the thing that still annoys me about it is that the left wing is loose. For those who may not know, the wings fold in and it's a pin setup. Is there anything I can do that will provide some resistance and not make it so floppy?

    Try removing the pin and apply a layer of transparent nailpolish. That should do the trick. I always use nailpolish to firm stuff up on my TFs.

    or you can use future floor finish. its more durable, has no smell or fumes, and is acrylic so it works with anything.

    Really? Floor finish? I have to try that so people will stop wondering why I buy stuff from the make-up department ;)

    also, future floor finish is really nice to spiff up clear plastic pieces that have scratches in em. just buff and sand out the scratch, let the piece take a future-bath, remove, set and dry - wait - wait - wait and voila~ new, clear, non-scratched plastic part.

    PRACTICE ON INSIGNIFICANT STUFF FIRST!
