leg extensions

Posted in Custom Workstation

I am currently working on a figure that needed slightly longer legs. There is a joint in the thigh of the figure which is where I chose to extend it. The top part that connects to the torso is hard plastic and has the peg. The bottom part is soft plastic and has the hole. I extended the top part and made a new peg out of aves apoxie sculpt. I have made two attempts both resulting in the peg breaking off after I re-attach the leg.
Any suggestions on how to make the new peg stronger?

Thanks!
I tried this out and it seems to have worked out really well.

I would recommend using a screw and then use a bit of aves apoxie sculpt over the top to get the shape of the peg that you need.
