Not a hint or tip, but a request for help please.

I am conversant with the methods to tighten up a floppy arm or leg on a blue pants eagle eyed figure, but I have a chap with a particularly floppy waist.

I have tried applying dental floss to the legs to try and put more tension on the waist, I have even tried a run of glue from a hot melt glue gun to no avail, and am now stumped.

Any one got an idea how to fix this problem?

Thanks

Paul

Not sure if it will help, but I've used rubber bands pushed into the joints of MAM figures to tighten the waist, hips, knees and elbows. Not sure if this would work on the BPEE bodies though.

I am sorted now, after winding copious amounts of dental floss into the waist joint the figure is no longer floppy and smells minty fresh!
