    Soft Vinyl model needs some weight suggesstions needed for filler(s)!!!

    Hello

    I've got an old ELFIN Soft Vinyl Mecha Model and I was wondering what should I do to give it some weight and/or strength. I've got plans to add some movable joints because I don't want this thing to be a statue . I was thinking of either foam (hopefully one that will not expand too much), epoxy putty or just super glue some thick sheet plastic inside the various structures (or a combination of all these options).

    Any help and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!

    Thank You!

    Fill the feet and other area's you want with fishing shot/weight and just cover it in glue.

    Or metal BB pellet for small/tight space, also test you adhesive on some extra vinyl to make sure they don't eat into or deform the vinyl first (Elmer's white tends to be fairly safe).

    Go to a range and pick up lead from the burm. Just dont destroy the burm and most ppl have no problem with you taking lead.
