    I'm not entirely certain this is the right place for this, but here goes...

    I have a broken Animated Blitzwing. One of his wings has fallen off, at the point where his wings swivel from the back to the side. The black piece where the swivel joint is is intact; the tan wingpiece has broken off. The hole that for the screw that held it in place has been stripped, and is now to big to hold the screw. The screw is (mostly) intact, but it may is well not be.

    I figured that I should just try and glue it back together, at both the screw hole and along the horizontal strip just above it. My main question is this: what kind of glue should I use? I tried using some modeling glue that came with a model airplane to no avail. Is there a better way to do this? Or is it a lost cause?

    I can upload pics later if necessary (I don't have time at the moment).

    I'n afraid that I don't really understand the joint you're describing, but if it's close a swivel joint then I'd hold off on glue unless it's the only option. I'd be better able to saw what to do when you post pics, but from the sounds of things maybe you need to get a slightly bigger screw to put in there.

    Try dipping the threads on the screw in some rubber cement. That should fill in the extra space *and* prevent the part from coming undone again. If you dont have rubber cement you could always try a slightly larger screw.
