A nail file should be enough





Just do a start and stop process when sanding. Stop if it starts to feel too loose. Keep testing the rotation of the Red leg parts.

If it feels really tight it could snap the front part

You don't need to sand this part down. The stress line is from the back part twisting the piece when you rotate the leg parts

Thanks!

I completed mine. addressed all the aforementioned issues and thankfull it turned out mostly alright. The shogun helmet is havinga hard time staying on the red zord's head but otherwise another good minipla. The shin area of the legs are a bit fiddly too but eh. Better than any Legacy one we might have gotten fo sho.

something I did to remedy the helmet sticking on, was actually using silicon oil to loosen the ball joint on the neck of the red shogunzord.

In doing so, you don't use as much force to turn the Shogun Megazord's head around and the helmet stays in place because of that.

Just made 3 of the Shogunzords (Red, White and Yellow) and I really don't think they are as fragile as people think. My red leg twirls fine. Not too stiff, not too loose.
Was really nervous too. I think those breakages must have been coming from rough maneuvers with them so as long as you take your time and are gentle (they are models after all) they won't break.

Really loving the articulation.
