    Polycap mishap

    This is the HG HiMock kit; leg joint. The polycap must have fallen out and I totally missed it when gluing/primer/painting. Didn't notice until re-assembly. Any tips or trick for squeezing that bit back in there, I tried but it's too stiff to force in place? Or am I going to have to saw it in half. Thanks for any suggestions.

    Trim the sides of the polycap a little. Inside the glued parts, cut out the top inside of the female slots it goes in so they're a U and not a O. Push it in with tweezers and then pull it back.
