WIP: Magnetizing my Warpwolf kit

WIP: Magnetizing my Warpwolf kit. So far I have it ready to be a feral, stalker, pureblood and in progress a Ghetorix. I have 2 whole kits, which lets me have enough parts to do all the arms / hands /head variants. Will also give me the 2 arms extra I need to make the Ghetorix. Expand for more pics.

 Lots of green stuff down the neck to keep the Magnets in place. With one in each arm socket and 2 stacked for the heads I didn't want them to pull each other loose.

Left Arm socket.

 Roght arm socket

With 2 stacked in the body and 2 stacked on the head of Ghetorix, the bond will be strong enough o hold the head. I wanted to leave a slight gap between the sets of magnets, so I would have to work too hard to pull the head out. It took a bit of playing around but I found the sweet spot between ease of removal and a strong bond.  Will surround the magnets on the head to keep them in place.

Just used bits of nails in the plastic heads and arms and they stay just fine. I am sure I will need to put Magnets in the arms for Ghetorix though. Will play with that more this weekend.

 I will put up a more in depth how too, once I am finished. I may have to change things up along the way.
