ah yes but wouldn't this shorten the figure

not really, they actually made it a tad taller to accommodate the belt... so you would be bringing it to captain marvel scale... its not even a centimeter hardly anyway ^_^

One option is always just busting it in half and cutting off the peg that makes the gap, then gluing the the 2 parts back together directly.. you will lose your waist swivel, but who cares (not me) humans don't swivel at the waist in real life.

another option is to just fill it with your milliput, but unless your fast and crafty enough your gunna lose the waist swivel anyway... I would just ditch it.

don't use rubber bands though (sorry) they will never last with glue and paint involved... and if the character had a belt anyway, you could just leave the MK belt to begin with and just re-sculpt the buckle.

(Just say no to play-doh )

Hello,


This might sound silly but you can try sculpt with super glue. Add the sculpt first and wait till it dry then add super glue. The trick is to not add to much sculpt. When you add to much it will crack after a few twist. Also get some sand paper and smooth it out before you twist the waist. I'm no pro but you could try it out if you want. Good luck on it.


Take Care
Bye :-)

Yeah, I just cover those gaps with belts, but I try to avoid the situation in the first place. I would just buy a Cap Marvel and switch-out the arms/legs/head.

are you wanting to do a smooth body? or a belt? if a belt is what you want use a rubber band and glue it to the trso or pelvis with it overlapping the gap to hide it, if not look for the Bane mod tutorial and that will help
