I broke my DiD Lift Dots

Hi,

I don't know if anyone has come across this problem?
I expect it is just me being heavy handed again...
But while filling up the Charles Winstone ammo belt with ammo clips.
I managed to break 3 of the little pips off that go into the top part of the flap.
So i have had to make some new 'pips' up to replace them.
How i did it is here.

So please be careful with them.

Gary

I broke a few of them myself it's not hard. I found if you make the holes bigger in the cloth after you unsnap them they go back together easier. I have also had the snaps fall off the cloth as well. This is the problem when we demand such detail in 1/6th sometimes things just are too delicate.

Hi,

Many thanks for the reply.
I thought i was the only one that had done this, and i agree they can be delicate.
I tried the larger hole in the cloth, but for some reason this time i broke them.

Personally, I think the DID ones are too much work/fall off too easily/lifes too short, instead, I use these :-

Much better all round and lets face it, when was the last time any of us actually made use of the fact that you are supposed to be able to open the DID ones ?.

thanks for this.

I love the DiD line but they are so damned fragile. I've stopped trying to open and close DiD pouches.


Any of you have much luck getting the gloves onto the figs hands?

I run the shaft of a small screwdriver between the fingers to push the gloves right down onto them.

I wonder when a customizer will make a set of metal LTDs, a bag of 1000 should do the trick once and forever

Now that would be something to have.

It would be nice if DiD could supply figures with LTD gear with a bag of spare LTDs.

Hi,

That would nice with DiD if they did them seperatly.
As it would save me from working, with my hands inside a large ziplock bag.
Everytime i worked on them....

As i am so afraid of one of them going airborne... never to be seen again.
