    Wing Zero Custom 1/60 Foot to Lower Leg Ball Joint

    Hi everyone.

    Looking for a replacement for the foot that has the ball joint that connects to the lower leg. It broke during transport.

    Let me know if you have it. Thank you.

    Are you talking about the no grade wing zero or the PG wing zero?

    PG Wing Zero doesn't have ball joints legs or ankles or feet. Are you talking about the regular cylindrical peg in the ankle? A pic/# of the part would be helpful.

    I will look at mine and see if I can come up with a solution.

    Correct me if I'm wrong. From the research that I've done that part is a peg. Why can't you you just pin it?

    What do you mean pin it? Glue it on?

    I see what you are saying. Yes it is a peg that goes into the rubber ball of the leg.

    The parts are L22 and L23 of Step 24. You guys think there is another set with the same parts?!?

    What you could do is drill a hole in both parts and glue a metal pin into holes to hold them together.

    Yes.

    Maybe I can find a plastic or metal pin long enough so it can be attached with the screw that goes onto the rest of the front foot. Maybe I can hack a Lego piece with the same diameter. Metal would probably be hard to glue.

    Metal would be stronger. You would need to use CA glue. If you want to use a plastic rod go to your location hobby store and buy a packet of plastic styrene rod the size of the hole you a going to drill. You can then use plastic model glue(little tamiya glue) to melt the broken parts and plastic rod together.

    OK. What is CA glue?

    Super Glue

    If Newtypes can predict the future, and feel their opponents intentions, how come none of them were ever able to dodge the Bright Slap?

    As Wolf stated CA glue is a type of super glue.

    Sorry I had a few unplanned things happen when I got to the house last night and was unable to get downstairs to look at mine, or even work on any Gunpla.
    What they are talking about is what I was thinking. I wanted to measure it and see what I had in the workshop that I would use. PVC and a bolt, aluminum, Steel, or what might hold best. That joint is going to be under a fair amount of stress so it needs to be rather strong.
