Shadow Hawk 2K - Classic - Chest moldling issue
« on: 04 September 2016, 10:50:34 »
I was super lucky to have a pal of mine snag me one of each of the new Hawks. And while I was assembling the 2K i noticed that there is a decent size chunk taken out of the poor guys chest. Anyone else have the same issue?

I wouldn't call it a chunk, but there was a little bit of some molding issue on the chest of mine. I just needed a little liquid green stuff, and it was good.

I have a 2H and had to do the same.

Thanks guys! I'm going to paint mine up as Battle Damage but makes me worried about the other variant I've got in blister.  :-\

All 3 of mine have this issue to varying degrees.

Mine has this as well, a bit of a defect in the left chest plate.  Nothing a little greenstuff can't fix, though.

Just got mine in and the same thing. I'm sure I can fill it in though. I need to order another.  :D

Yeah...that one's going to require contacting IWM for a replacement. Looks like the mold didn't fill out all the way.

WOW. :o

I know they are excellent at replacing bad/missing parts...but sheesh.

requesting a new torso was on my weekend list. i have several hundred IWM-produced mechs and have only had problems with about a half-dozen so it's not something i lose much sleep over, especially since they're so good about sending replacement parts.
